As far as the window thing goes, it's clearly over your head. Malkin and Crosby are better than any of the players we have, and will be for years.

Arguing with me is pointless for you because I keep proving you wrong. Sorry.
You have proved nothing, you just stated your opinion as fact.

How about some numbers? There are 38 players on the above list, you bolded 13. So even if every of the prospects bolded reach their full potential (which I guarantee you won't happen), there's just a little better than 1/3 chance that we get a better player than our current "stars". So it could take 9 years just to replace them, and even if we trade for more picks and do it in five, players like Stepan and McD will be 30+. So unless you get a generational talent that you can build around, it's a pretty risky way, whether you like it or not.
