im sure the pressure is on Bergevin to make ballsy moves and trade for this player or sign this player etc. The time is not right, you make the moves like you think that this could be your year to win the Cup.
Slow and steady has proven to be a sure thing though. Look at the Blackhawks. no bold moves, no big UFA signing (last one being Hossa) build from within, trade the role players with value when you have someone in the farm to replace them. That formula will keep your team a contender every year. Look a Pittsburgh, Chicago, LA..all bottom dweller that drafted well (yes I understand all these team had several top 5 picks) and now they are favorites every year.
Rangers and Leafs are the perfect example of trying to rush thing doesnt work. Getting the best UFA,s making the big trade and neither of those team had great success with that formula.
So far I like what Bergevin has done and im willing to wait a couple more years as a bubble team. In 3 years or so. We will see most of our high picks (Collberg, McCarron, DLR, Beaulieu) with our young core (Galchenyuk, Price, Subban, Pax, Gallagher, Tinordi) and we'll have one hell of a team....and add 2 drafts to that!!!
