What if a Kessel type player is not available at #4?

What if any of those picks become busts?

Did any of those players really make the Bruins win a cup?

Anyway I'm all about winning so how do we plan to get the number 1 pick?
What if we keep doing what we've been doing? Isn't that also fair to ask? You basically want to play it safe out of fear of the unknown. History rewards those that take risks and those that are willing to pay the price to get to the ultimate goal. If losing for a few years does that then who cares? It's not about getting the number one pick it's about allowing the team to finish where it naturally should during a down period, sucking it up and making picks in positions that have greater odds of yielding the skill we lack on a yearly basis. Boston built through the draft, made a shrewd move in trading kessel and made a smart UFA signing in Chara.
