Two years ago people were talking about Tampa's and Washington's "windows of opportunity" fast closing and they either would be too cap squeezed or too old yada yada. So much for that. Their periods of contention will end up longer than ours was, and there is no reason we could not have had that as well. OK, you all can slam me now and then go back to marveling at Lias Andersson and Brent Howden.
    Nice to have a ovie or a stamkos though

    Perhaps we didnt want another Staal or hank contract for a player who's play was not improving the last year and half while he was a ranger.

If we had a Kappo or a Jack Hughes on those teams I think we win a cup. Now, we are going to get that type of talent. It'll take a few years but I am fully confident we can build the same kind of supporting cast around this type of talent agian.
    Time will tell. I decided awhile ago that the pressure in NY is so severe that there really has to be that Crosby, Ovechkin, Messier-esque guy who has shoulders big enough to take the team on his back and almost single-handedly drag it across the line. I'm not convinced that either Kappo or Hughes is that guy. The competing theory is that with a strong enough supporting cast - including some elite talent like Kappo and Hughes - you can do it. I would put the 13-14 team and the early 70's teams in that category (with Park, the GAG line, a 2nd line - the unheralded "Bulldog Line" - that was nearly as good during a few years). To great heartache, they couldn't get it done. So I'm skeptical, but still hopeful.

    Im surprised there is so much fear they will go off the board at 2. It's not like in the past when we were picking 7 or 9. I know everyone think Lias was a reach pick but im pretty sure the Kings were gonna take him a few picks later. Kravstov was a pick where the analysts underrated him because he wasnt getting much playing time until the playoffs where he tore it up and now he is one of the top prospects from that draft. I dont see how Clark or Gorton pass on Kakko/Hughes. There is no way I see that happening

    I was hoping someone would mention him. Have to say, If anybody was going to give Tampa trouble, it would be him.
