Do you know what a rebuild is? Starting from scratch, meaning you have a fire sale for draft picks on the core of the team. Our core includes Price, Subban, Gorges, Plekanec, Pacioretty, Cole, and Desharnais. The rebuild is not necessary as the Habs already have talented youth in place at all positions. The Habs have the youngest defence in the league. Rebuilding implies youth. The Habs have youth. What the Habs need is a retool meaning unloading deadweight or washed up overpaid vets and acquire through trade or free agency younger, cheaper, more talented replacements. With Gill and Cammalleri gone already the Habs can become much better by ridding themselves of Gomez and Kaberle. Get rid of those two contracts anyway you can and use the money to acquire the right pieces the habs need. If Montreal can acquire draft picks as well as NHL ready players (Hal Gill transaction) that would be ideal.

The habs can become a very good team as soon as next season.
