Bergevin will have to realize that his team will not get better if he only build with the draft. The only players that the team could use an upgrade are: Bourque, Brière, Desharnais, Bouillon and Murray. No prospect seems ready to replace them and be an effective player for the Habs in the next 3 years.

Markov won't be this good for ever. When Markov will leave this team, the Habs will drop in the standing like the Sens did without Alfredsson. Subban will have a 5 millions increase in salary, Eller and Emelin a 2 millions increase in salary each, Markov will cost at least 5.5 millions. This team will soon have less depth because of those salary increases.

Unless that Galchenyuk became a 65 + point Producer in the next 2 years, there is a good chance that this year is the best Habs team that the Habs will have in the next 3 to 5 years.

Bergevin says that he want to build the team with the draft and that he won't trade picks and prospect to make a playoff push but at the same time he lost Ryder for nothing while he could have trade him for a 1st round pick, he re-sign Bouillon and sign Murray instead of giving ice time to Tinordi or Pateryn and the Habs will probably lose Gionta, Diaz and maybe Markov for nothing this year.

If Bergevin doesn't want to go for it this year, he should take a step back and trade the players he doesn't want to re-sign. No middle ground here. You either go for it or you trade the players you doesn't want on your team or that you have not enough money to re-sign them like: Brière, Bourque, Bouillion, Murray, Desharnais, Diaz, Gionta and maybe Markov.
