Haven't the Bills taught you? You can start rebuilds indefinitely!

Seriously, suppose Vanek and Pommer walk. Your plan for cup contention is filling the top 6 with 20 year old kids who currently aren't in the NHL, a couple who are and sure aint Sidney Crosby, and Shane Doan on the third line.

Unless the brilliant plan is to let Vanek and Pommer walk only to try and sign back some different scorers to fill out the top 6. In which case, good luck. You're going to be paying 7.5M for the next 50 point guy, if he'll even consider coming after watching you let your best forwards walk.

How this is not ****ing gospel (especially in Buffalo) is beyond me: you never let your best players walk away for nothing and expect to get better. Not unless Vanek and Pommer are some kind of cancer we have to kill.
