Unlike the Rangers, who also suck, but win just enough games to make you think we don't really need to change anything.
We have a general manager who has the worst won-loss record (196-258) of any Ranger GM in at least the last 40 years, and hasn't even been able to win ONE playoff game! Not one!!!
We're all led to believe by our trusty management that we've got lots of help coming from below, just continue to be patient until it gets here. Unless there is a big name available, of course, then forget the youth and go for it now. We can go for youth again next year. Until there is another veteran available.
And we follow a blueprint that has proven over the last ten years doesn't work.
I agree 100% with everything you said. If Forsberg was the missing piece to us being a legit Cup contending then I'd be ok with us parting with "some" youth to get him, but I really don't see us being legitimate cup contenders unless we somehow magically bring in a top D pairing.
