The naysayers and pessimists certainly have leverage since we've started poorly but this team will continue to improve as the season goes on. We have plenty of good pieces, a few great ones (Nash, McDonagh, Richards, Stepan), and the best goalie in the league.

People want a complete rebuild but you have to ask how that worked for Edmonton. Phoenix had a lot of high picks, the Islanders did. If you want to build a sustainable empire like Detroit, like San Jose, like St. Louis, you acquire young talent and stay the course with the stars you have.

You don't judge a team by a poor start. This team has advanced past the first round of the playoffs each of the last two seasons.
