This is why I get incredibly frustrated reading some of the comments from fans who have recently started following this team, so have no perspective on how bad it could be.
Even the most stacked team in a cap era doesn't have more than a 30% chance of winning the cup any given year. I think Gillis has made it pretty clear he believe being amongst the contenders for a longer number of years > being clear cut favourites for a very small window.
