Personally, I'd like to see the majority of this team have another shot or two at redemption. They finished first last year, had an unbelievably crappy year this year. I believe this team is not far away from being a serious contender. I'd like to see BG keep the team together for a 2-yr window and try to add the few missing pieces rather than rip apart and start a rebuild right now.
Markov and Hamrlik are signed for two years. According to that article, Koivu and Schneider are looking for 2-3 year deals, Kovalev has another couple in him.
I'll admit that part of that is because I'd really like to see Koivu holding the cup in a Habs jersey.
The caveat being that they are able to make a significant upgrade in a position, whether that's through FA or a trade. If not, then the rebuild is the logical way to go, and that IMO would involve trading Markov for a big package of young talent.
