To be honest, I don't think Gainey's goal is to win the cup in '09. I think he goal is to win the cup EVERY year. In the new NHL we have already seen how quickly a team can turn its fortunes around (all four teams from the conference finals last year were non-playoff teams the previous season), and I agree that you should always have an eye on the future, but right now I think all Bob's attention is focused on the '06-'07 season and not 2-3 years away.
