This is false. Any "knowledgeable Hab fan" knows that the rebuilding doesn't *start* next year. The players are developing this year. They may be injected into the lineup next year, but there's already a significant amount of youth on the big club this year and the 'true rebuilding era' has been going on for several years now.

The team can't just forget about developing players because next year there'll be more room. Each and every player needs to be developed and given adequate ice time this season in order for them to even make the cut next season.
