we don't know that the kings ever could have signed either of those goalies.

but would signing either of them get the kings any closer to the cup? sure, they might make the playoffs, and that would give their youngsters more experience. but there's no way they win a cup or come close to it with khabi or roloson over the next couple of years.

its a difficult thing to define, but i just don't get the whole "rebuilding" thing. how long is a "true rebuild" supposed to take?

i definitely believe every team wants to win as fast as possible. at least, i should hope they do. (if not, the league has a problem). but that doesn't mean every team is acquiring as many legit current nhlers as possible. every team has to realize where they stand, when their roster is going to be truly competitive for the stanley cup, and work around that.
