It came down to this for me.

-Will Pleky still be here?
-Will Nygren be ready?
-Will this be a competitive line-up?
Go get your crystal balls and shoot me your line-ups!
1. A trade for effective young
players in return for our many redundant prospects.
2. A prospect other than Tinordi, Beaulieu, and possibly McCarron and Collberg who is good enough to play for a contender. IE: None of our other prospects. Nygren I left in there for fun, very likely not happening.
BTW: I hope you guys realize that anyone we draft from 2014 on, unless top 3, or a freak like Subby, will not be a factor in this 5 year cup window.
Building through draft for our next cup with this core is now over.
Too bad, that is why last year sucked. Would have been much better to draft 10th or higher, as Bergy desperately tried to do, than finish '1st' and get rogered up the arse by the ****ing SENS in round 1.
3.Or a UFA acquisition, which are worse every year. Do not go there unless it's a Hossa, which it will not be. And over 30 in today's NHL? Forget it. UFA sucks bag.
Looks like door number one. Better get trading next year Bergy.
I am not joking. Our prospect pool is not strong enough, UFA is ****, and we have a 5 year Price Subban Max, Chuckie window opening next year.
Bergy has only one option left to make this cup window:
Start trading prospects for good young NHL talent that can help in a cup drive, NOW.
Let us see if he realizes this. NO Habs GM in the last 20 years has inherited this great a core, and had as much to lose, as Bergy.
