Imo, that's a good phase to jump in. They already have some good prospect core there (Ryan Murray, Ryan Johansen, Boone Jenner, Tim Erixon, Morgan Reilly, David Savard, Cam Atkinson etc...), and those great picks that you have secure going well. Then the other building is hiring right personnel etc. strengthen the connection to the farm team. He has a model of succesful organization, he just have to bring that in.

Senators peaked in ~8 years when he was drafting there, same is now happening for the Blues.
Mike Reilly.
