If this is a true rebuild, it won't start and end with this season. It will take some time and things will get worse before they get better.
i gotta say, i'm very certain this is a true blue rebuild, i mean sather made no secret of his desires to deal Holik and Jagr and Holik still could and very likely may be dealt or even bought out. I really think Sather has no intentions on signing a plathora of vets, perhaps 1 or 2 tops, not including a goalie and thats it. I mean lets remember not a lot of vets are going to want to come to a rebuilding team with no sign of a playoff possibility unless they're given huge contracts and insanely over payed, a route i don't want to travel.
