Obviously different actions by the GM would have--and still can--have a better result.

By the way, if the budget argument is correct, is the reason behind our incomplete team, then doesn't that mean we'll always have an incomplete (or, really, incompetent) team? Of course, that is, unless the team some day has owners more willing to spend (a few extra million). Perhaps there won't be so many empty seats in the arena then. I'm not informed on how the finances of an NHL franchise work, so if you happen to be in the know, do share. Is a losing team more profitable than a winning team for which you pay a bit more?
You make a huge assumption that we can sign star players or top line forwards. Kuba and Jovo signings are bad, get over it. Tallon has built one of the best prospect pools in the league. We're going to get more quality assets at the deadline and we'll probably have another big draft. Rome wasn't built in a day.
