I'm personally ok with sucking if we get our d-man in the draft. Our core is still very young. If we didn't blow up the team earlier, sucking now would be a problem. But as it is, with a half season and some nice consolation prizes for teams like us, plus the fact Richie and Jeff would be 29(wow they age fast, don't they?) next season, I think we should fortify the young core even more with some nice, nice pieces this year. I still enjoy watching them and I want them to win....but I'm not gonna complain if we don't. This season might be just what we needed to get rid of some dead weight (Briere, old Timo, maybe Mesz?) and still get something for them if we aren't competing.

If we can get some #2 or #3 guys on D with those trades, all the better. Then we can spend our money on replacing Briere with a Duck or two.
