Personally, I'm waiting to see how Burke/Wilson spin it once we've gone with an all vet lineup.
They're going to say they owe it to Leaf Fans and the ACC seat and ticket holders to ice the best team it thinks allows then to win each game regardless of age.

The young players will have to earn their spots, and will not simply be given them even during this rebuild process. There will be no feeling of entitlement from anyone on this team now that they are in charge..

Spending big on UFA's, and spending to the Cap ceiling was always the real goal with the attempt to make the playoffs ASAP.. Currently the "rebuild" process is buying them time to get there under the premise its not going to happen over night.
