Will the actual rebuild take more than one year? Maybe. But dude... we may be in the tank whether we want to be or not. That may not be what you want to hear but it could very easily happen. We didn't try to tank last year and still finished 15th.

Better to start dealing assets now so it accelerates things. Like I said though, dealing Markov, Cole and Plecs isn't going to send us back to the stone age. We've lived without Markov for a long time anyway and Cole only joined us last year (and we tanked with him and Plecs anyway.) If we're going to sink, we'll sink with or without those guys. The only question is whether or not we want to maximize the assets before it happens.
I do think that if we do things right this year we can shift from being a rebuilding team to being a transition team as soon as 2013-2014.

That means:

- Keep Subban
- Deal 1 or 2 vets
- Draft in the top-6
