Good post OP.
I think Bergevin's plan is the right one. But I haven't agreed with many hirings in the hockey personel and contracts given to certain players. But at the same time, he has to deal with the fact that while he's rebuilding, he still has to make the playoffs. That's the hardest part he has to deal with and the reason why many are questioning some of his extensions and the Briere signing. That may or may not prolong the rebuild.
I still think that at some point if he wants this team to reach the next level, he will have to pull a big move. Personally, I'd rather see a real rebuild with us drafting high for 1 or 2 more years, but that's not gonna happen. Unless this team absolutely collapses again like they did in 2011-2012.
All in all, I think the organization has needed this type of patience for many many years, and after one year, I can say that Bergevin hasn't given any signs of deviation from his plan. Which is positive.
