I think their drafting is massively over-rated, only their top picks are doing anything. You have these elite level rookies being guided by 3rd liners, you are asking for problems.
They'll be fine. All that team needs to do is stay patient. And if they're going to change things up they should do it on the blueline.

Hurts the Lightning, they were at the TD Garden and did their morning skate. The makeup game should be in Tampa.
I hear they're considering Mel Lastman for coach.

You can't win with kids? Maybe not (though Pittsburgh and others are evidence that this isn't true) but you can build with kids, there's nothing wrong with that at all. Let them develop. As they mature and get better then they can add some FAs. All managment has to do is stay patient. We'll see if they're smart enough to do this.

They are a bunch of 18 year olds developing their game. They don't have to win this year, they've got lots of time.
