I'm not sure how close they are.....quantify it? Can they win a cup in two years? Holmgren may be looking at the Meltzer argument of maybe snagging an NHL ready prospect like a Landeskog and maybe some that can be ready in a couple of years at the least so that you can extend your window. More ways than one to slice it...I wouldn't term it to the extreme of rebuilding but of restructuring the framework. Not an easy task though....hence why Holmgren finds himself at a critical junction of his GM career where he needs to balance winning now with ensuring some kind of competitive future for the Flyers within the constraints of the cap...
