You've forgotten "I 'aint even mad" vs. "Will Toronto make the playoffs this year?"...
Ottawa can weather a rebuild, and that includes waiting for prospects to mature.
If you think Filatov deserves more opportunities to showcase his stuff over here, I'm not sure what to tell you.
Did you forget "Kadri Weight-gate?" How about that Van Riemsdyk had been disappointing until he suddenly started scoring in like his 3rd game?
There's more to the Toronto environment than HF.
