The problem with that, is that it creates a losing mentality on a young team... Who knows how much, losing season after losing season, can impact a young player's development?? How it might affect EJ, Duchene and Varly?

Most players, young player especially, lose their confidence the moment the losses start to pile up. So it becomes a vicious circle, of losing games, players losing their confidence, not developing properly, team losing some more games, guys dissapearing... draft high, bring another youngster full of potential, season starts, you lose some games to start the season, players lose their confidence... etc.
