Look at the talent on other teams, like the Nucks last night, Bobby Lou in net, two Sedins, Kesler, Edler, Burrows, Raymond, Bieksa Hamhuis (Schneider as backup goalie)

The Hawks? Toews, Kane, Hossa, Sharp, Keith, Seabrook, Crawford in net, and their bit players are playing lights out

We need some first line talent & I know that drafting them won't fill next year's top line.. this is 2 to 3 year rebuild. Just a little more confident now that we will get there. Priest running the org.. no thanks.
You are also talking about maybe the top 2 talented teams in the West. Fact is we have more talent on the blue line than all but a few Western teams, and more depth at forward than most. Yes we lack top end talent at forward.
