Couldn't agree more. This is a great chance to get a great draft then turn around next season and kick ass and chew bubblegum. Do what the Flyers did a few years ago. Short of a team giving you multiple lottery first round picks ala Phil Kessel trade (I still can't believe the Bruins got Seguin. So unfair, the rich get richer, yada yada yada), you can't ask for a better quick turnaround retooling than this situation.

I just hope Darcy and Lindy aren't around to **** it up. At least Darcy, at bare minimum.
