I also think that you shouldn't have a boxed perspective on the so-called "rebuild" this team is going through. We are not the New York Islanders or the Edmonton Oilers of the last few years. We have a good team with a couple (relatively large, albeit) holes.

If Melnyk wants to spend, he can. We have the cap space. I don't think there is a strong argument to be made that an elite forward and a top defenseman wouldn't put us into Stanley Cup contention.

EDIT: In response to other stuff you said - I don't think there is evidence to suggest Melnyk is dirt poor, but there are good reasons out there to support my claim that he is being stingy with the O-Sens.
What are those reasons you allude to that are based on fact, not speculation?
