ChickenDinner Posted June 10, 2015 Share Posted June 10, 2015 If you look around the league, championship teams are built through the draft, with surrounding or finishing pieces added through free agency or trade. No one has bandaged there way to the finals by adding a piece to an existing stale group. Teams such as Tampa, Chicago, and LA all made it because of drafting. You could say "oh but look at Chicago they had the first overall pick and got Kane and also Toews, and we're never in that position" but at the same time they drafted guys like Saad, Seabrook, Keith... We need to get higher picks, we nes to get more picks, we can't keep bandaging up this group and hope a miracle happens. Guys like Higgins, Hansen, Hamhuis are not for us anymore but they can have value for someone else. Before its too late we need to trade them for picks and turn this team around. For example if we had traded Matthias at the deadline we could have gotten a solid draft pick for him but we had hope that he could help us and we ended getting nothin. That hope must be ignored to build something for tomorrow. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
