The thing is, at least your team has enough grit and character to make the games watchable if you do sell off Kipper and Iggy. As an Oil fan, the 09-10 season was flat out painful watching Nilsson, POS and the like just coast and avoid contact.

What could Iggy fetch? Kipper? I'm thinking each would net a 1st and very good prospect, in a draft that may be comparable to 2003. On one hand I want it to happen to watch Feaster eat his words, on the other I want to see legit battles of Alberta as well as western road trips be referred to as death valley again.

I'd only be in favor of a rebuild if the team is doing really bad at the beginning of the season and we get ridiculous returns on Kipper and Iggy.
