And then in the mean time, he signed a goalie for humongous big money who will be out of his prime by the time these new younger players hit their prime.

This wasn't a "proper" rebuild. This is nothing like a proper rebuild. This was Homer's attempt to pull a rabbit out of his a** and get the best of both worlds, getting younger while still competing. This type of "mixed" strategy is not how you build a championship team, this is how you royally ****** up a team for a decade.
Pronger is gone and kimmo and Briere are following shortly (at least they won't be on the roster getting 6+). After that the flyers are left with a young core on offense and defense so i don't really see your point. Sure they have a hole or two but at least 1 could potentially be filled very soon. I think homer has done a very good job compiling these players, but time will tell.
