They missed the playoffs for 9 years and got absolutely embarassed in round one last year. They need to win now.

Geoff Molson isn't MLSE. He preaches patience. Even with the pick that got us Galchenyuk, that mandate wasn't 'trade it away for someone who can play now' ala Phil Kessel.
I completely agree with this.

If you look back at a lot of big signings and trades, they end up being disasters.

I'm glad we have a GM whose patient and I think he's smart enough to know when we're close to being contenders and then he'll make the moves to put us over the top.
