We won't always be writing big checks in July, but if it's for young proven talent, what's the difference?
Seems like all it takes is a little adversity and everyone questions the long term goal. If it doesn't work out this year.. so what? We're still set to be a competitive team next year and beyond.
I've been saying this same stuff for years now. Has very little to do with the current team.
McDonagh was a winning lottery ticket. The kid wasn't living up to expectations, and Montreal thought he was expendable. Most teams don't make that kind of mistake.
There's a big difference between having viable, proven youngsters in your lineup to compliment your stars, and watching those kids try and stick and make an impact while your stars scratch prime years off of their hockey career. Timing is everything.
We've had the same problems year after year with this team. Lack of identity. Lack of chemistry. Lack of talent. Lack of grit. Lack of heart. We've never been able to put them all together in one year. How much longer can we continue to say: "So what? There's always next year. Look who will be on the UFA market!"
