Do you believe our "window" to win the Cup is still open?

Oilers rebuild it, shall we? Yes we can!
Reload. Not rebuild. Rebuilding is a 4-5 year process, reloading is a quick 1-2 year turnaround. Just look at the Philly model for an example of what I mean. They were just awful in 2007, finishing 2nd last but still having a lot of talent on the team. They picked up JVR in the draft, had a great pick in Claude Giroux waiting in the wings and made some very shrewd signings (Hartnell, Timonen and Briere) that completely turned them back into contenders.
