Full rebuild is not DRW style and overall is admitting that you're a fail of a manager. Not to mention it's very risky (ask Toronto). Can't see it.

Detroit's problem is that they broke the chain of elite players changing each other: now they have a situation when the prospects are still prospects, while Lidstrom retired and Euro twins are still good, but accumulate injuries. Guys like Nyquist look very promising, but a) they will need a couple of years to bloom and b) I'm not convinced they are players that will be ready to replace superstars. Depth is there, but a team without elite front line players won't win the Cup.
