Depends on your definition of retool or rebuild. Rebuild for me is stripping down the team entirely and keeping maybe 1 franchise like player, if even. Retool is keeping a modifying elements to the team. For instance, I consider keeping Eller, Pacioretty, Price, Subban and Gorges a sign of a retool not rebuild.

In any case, if I were GM I would do a big retool right about now or next year. Our top players in each position are young, we have a top 5 pick coming up and it seems like if we fail to be competitive next year, a massive retool for picks, prospects, NHL ready young players, etc...would go a long way because by the time the majority are ready, the same few top players we have will be in their prime, and they will be surrounded by young cheap talent.
