Speculative at best.

You're starting from the assumption that Columbus is rebuilding. Maybe they are, maybe they aren't. There's a team on the ice that has seen massive turnover in the last two years, and is currently one of the youngest in the league (and had the most players active during the lockout). Are the pieces in place already, and now we just need to see how they mature and grow together?

The two oldest players on the team are Vinny Prospal and Adrian Aucoin, both of whom are on one-year contracts. After that is Derek MacKenzie, who's 31. Several key players aren't even close to their prime yet.

What would be gained from basically gutting the defensive core? Why should impatience rule the day?
