The examples are out there for teams who took a step back for a season or 2 and then took big leaps forward. Philly did it the year they drafted JVR. The Bruins did it shortly after selecting Kessel. The Devils picked Larsson and then went to the Finals the year after. Are these players instrumental right away? Most likely not. The point is, just because you "tank" one season doesn't mean it has to be a long process.
It's hard to tell this season but Colorado and Nashville look like good teams and both picked highly last year.
Montreal sucked, picked Galchenyuk, made the playoffs. It goes on and on.
