    We've got a great core, lots of young players with talent who should develop into really solid depth, lots of organizational depth upcoming, not to mention most likely having Jack Hughes or Kaapo Kakko on the team next year... Cup in the next three years if we stay on this path.

    We just lost to, and were dominated by, the worst team in the NHL (Ottawa). After the positive steps the Avs took last season, that's a huge problem. Players like Compher, Jost, Andrighetto, and Bourque need to be very, very worried about their future in the NHL. And Bednar should be even more worried about HIS future as an NHL Coach.

    We get Ottawa's Draft Pick in the Duchene trade, which will be a Lottery Pick, in the upcoming Draft. So, if we go by where we chose in the Lottery year before last, we will get the 4th Pick. The 4th Pick is the worst Pick that the worst team can possibly get in the Lottery, and judging by our history, it will be the worst pick. So, I wouldn't bet on Kakko or Hughes. We just aren't that lucky.

    We also have Makar about to join the team after the college season is over. That should be a boost. Shane Bowers is headed our way. And hopefully Conor Timmons will eventually recover from the Concussion that has kept him off of the ice for a year. I suspect Timmons career could well be over before he ever sees NHL ice. Really too bad. And, if we continue to drop like a sack of dirt, as we have for the last month, our own Draft Pick should be a pretty good one. So yeah, in a few years, and with a new Goalie, we should be competitive with the top teams.
