I'm not happy either, but the team is in the middle of what amounts to a minor rebuild. It's not time to scrap it and start all over with a major one.

The problem with this team is that Regier didn't address the center issue in the short term (a sophmore center and winger convert as your top 2 aren't the answer) and Ruff seems like he forgot how to coach. This team doesn't need a rebuild...just an aggressive GM to tweak the lineup and a coach that doesn't ask for line changes with 9 seconds to go in a game.
i dont think anyone is suggesting scrapping the rebuild... i'm suggesting committing to it.

i would trade Miller... we can keep and re-sign pommer... and i would dangle vanek at the draft.

your goalie is only as good as the team around him... we can fix the goaltending later
