The bigger picture is putting your team in a position to win the cup every year. You can't keep falling for the "oh we'll be in a strong position next year" fallacy.

Now our blue line has Bouillon, a warm body who's played a handful of games the last few years and some of the greenest rookies in the league. Diaz who's concussed, Kaberle who we're not allowed to play, and Weber who's just plain awful.

We're going to be exposed on the back-end and it's the GMs fault - be he Bergevin or Gauthier or Gainey or Savard. You can't fanboy incompetence or lack of foresight no matter how snappy he dresses.

Next season will be even tougher because there is more travelling, more injuries, more cold streaks and a tighter cap - Boston got Jagr, Pittsburgh got Iginla, Morrow and Murray, the Rangers traded Gaborik for Brassard and Clowe... and the Habs got a 7th d-man to complete Dandouillon v2.
