Yes, and only one of those guys was a core contributor on their Stanley Cup winning team last year.

Besides, we ourselves already have a "5" (Carey Price) and a "3" (Alex Galchenyuk).

You make it sound like it's bad for Habs fans to be pleased over where we are now...

Do you really think that we Habs fans shouldn't be pleased over where we are now?

If we made the playoff last year, we won't have Galchenyuk to drool over and everyone would be complaining instead of drooling coz we *might* not even be 1st in East..
Just because you get a top player through sucking one year doesn't mean a team should aim for that every year. At some point, even an officially rebuilding team should be aiming to turn it around and start winning again. The Habs are definitely at that point with us already having the Gallys, Subban, Patches, Eller, and Price.

Not to mention we already have 4 Top 60 picks in this year's draft anyway.

You guys who only care about the future, and don't care at all about the present, are never satisfied when it comes to future potential, are you?
