No guys, that's not how it works.

On the opposite, if we somehow get into playoffs this year with the team we have right now, this will make us a contender for next year immediately.
It's not just the draft pick, but the return of Spezza, Karlsson and Cowen, possible FA additions, trades, and the maturing of players like Turris, Silf, Zibby, Stone, Noesen etc. that will make us a contender next year.
