Like especially if say, Oates can't work a miracle, Ribeiro walks next season, and you have a roster of (nice young core) + (scrubs) + (underperfoming Ovechkin & whatever Green), that's pretty far from serious contention, this kind of situation screams (mini)-rebuild, IMO. I'm leaving politics out of the equation, obviously..

?-Backstrom-Kuz
?-MJ-Forsberg

Alzner-Carlson
?-Orlov

Holtby

+assets from Ovechkin, Green.. that's a damn nice set up for the future.
