I'm all for building through the draft, but if those Lindholm, Barkov, Monahan, Drouin level prospects pan out at the pace of B Schenn, Colin Wilson, Hodgson, etc. we're going to be in a world of hurt until the 2020s...
Even Columbus made the playoffs 1 year and therefore any optimism they had the next year proved unfounded.

We may not make the playoffs next year with say McKinnon but we would all know that a bright future is just around the corner. Counting on Kadri, Frattin, Kostka, Reimer and Scrivens being the foundation of TO's future just doesn't do it for me.
I may be wrong and I hope I'm wrong, God I hope I'm wrong.
