I'd rather keep Vanek and Poms around for a few more seasons so the young guys can stay protected for a little longer.
On paper... I think it's a valid comparison.
But a real rebuild, where it's planned from the top... is different. They never tried to rebuild when the co-caps left, they were still "contenders" in their own minds... they had "the best defense in the NHL" remember?
So, I think if a new staff was brought in to coach the team under the pretense that they were building TOWARDS something... it would be different
