And we don't compete against the other conference. So yes...it is a freakin fake season. So going all in and send every pick and prospect for this season with maybe mostly rentals don't cut it. With proper management, you might have a chance to either try to win it all this year.....or build a team so you'd be a contender for the next 10 years. 'Cause don,t kid yourself...Boston is build for the next 10 years as well. They do have some depth. And nobody think Pittsburgh will be easier to play against in the following years. So I choose a wise management over a panicking one.
Exactly.

I'll add that the only key pieces that will regress in 3-4 years are Markov and Gionta. I see Markov staying a good 2nd pairing defenseman and PP specialist with his vision for that long if his knee hold up. Gionta, we can easily replace him.

On the other end, every other key piece will only get better and better. Plus we will still be having a influx of prospects with the awesome drafting staff we have, for when it is really time to go all-in.
