buy they went a whole CBA without making the playoffs and their record is no better with these leaders then it was before they came.. Both are compliment pieces to an elite foundation, not elite leaders..

Stop saying fans are frustrated cause we are 5 games in... this goes back a long ways for some.. its a build up of on going losing...
I don't dispute that these are compliment pieces. Phaneuf is overpaid for what he brings, no question. It's not the frustration that is the biggest issue, it's the over reaction. Fans always want to make a trade, to fix things now somehow. Somehow people didn't see this type of play coming?

While I would agree that the amount of points is no better than the pre-Burke period, I do believe we have started to build a foundation of decent young players and prospects. Hopefully we can draft one more excellent piece this year, and pick up some critical UFA's. It has been apparent for several years that this team was setup for this upcoming UFA season.
