I'd rather have them make smart moves instead of dumping everyone for picks and prospects. They still have Vanek, Pominville, Ehrhoff, and a few other guys capable of helping them win now so why blow up everything?
The hybrid route at this point would basically be to change the faces in the locker room to try to win now, or at least push for the playoffs. It's illogical and would only hurt their future to do that. The team needs to face the fact that the season is basically over already and plan for next year, not futilely push for this year.
