I don`t have high hopes for them, to be honest, but this I agree with. That said, as much as I like Bob, I`d rather if they got destroyed badly. It`d be better for their future. Those fans had enough of mediocrity since the lockout. They have solid young players in the system, but they also have a ****ton of money tied in bad contracts and players that will get them nowhere. If they truly want to be competitive for many years to come, the fail is the way. Forget the draft, what they need is a change of mindset.

Also, if they don`t trade Iginla, he`s gone after the season. Every player wants to win the Cup, especially the great ones.
