As long as they sell off their UFA assets, I'd rather keep as much of this intact for the next front office to decide what to do.
My problem with this is the huge question of do DR/LR think a rebuild is necessary? or do they continue with their crappy line of "the rochester core is capable of winning a cup with other complementary pieces and will be ok when everyone's healthy." because if they think that, they might be willing to, as Jame pointed out, sell the younger core to build around the rochester core that dr/lr seem to be so in love with. But everyone in that group outside of pominville/vanek has woefully underachieved this year AND have not stepped up as the leaders we expected when roy/staff were given the A. and if they go with that route, we'd be the calgary flames of the east: We'd have a ton of overpaid vets and no young guys/cap space available to fix the problems.
