I think that your logic is flawed. There have been many years where the hands down favorite team to win the Cup exits before they get a chance to fulfill the expectations.

No one knows when the perfect time to make a run is. You take a chance and go for it.

We were the 2nd place team in the East, 1st in the NE and many people, Bergevin included, decided that it was not the perfect time.

Pittsburgh went all in. They are taking a chance. Will they win it all? Who knows? Will Boston with their move for Jagr? No one knows. But they are making an effort. One may be vindicated and win it all. Both may lose.

I hate to put up another cliche but it is reality. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Since Bergevin felt that we did not have what it took to win a Cup, his inaction to improve this team will validate the result.

Maybe someone needs to tell Prust that and let him ease up for the rest of the season because he still thinks that we have a chance. Same for Gallagher, Galchenyuk and a few others who are still giving it their all. And maybe Emelin should have eased up as well and played to the expectations of a lot of fans and the GM.
