I will post more on this on a later date but for the record my decision on whether or not to try for a 1 year reload versus a 3 to 5 year rebuild rests on three unknowns:
1. If Boston wants Penner;
2. If they would give up the Toronto 1st rounder for him and be willing to wait to the last hour of trade deadline day to do it; and
3. Where Toronto is in the standings
My reasoning revolves around the concept of 'luck' and whether or not your success or lack of success depends on it working for you or against you, respectively.
The dots aren't hard to connect.
Not that it matters.
Have a great evening everyone.
