Losing O'Reilly now is going to be another setback in the "rebuild".
With ROR out and Stazz being probably gone in 1.5 years at the latest we are back to step 2:
We really need to tank hard this year. There is no point in rushing Landeskog EJ or anyone back. I hope the focus lies on the prospect part of the return. We want get an adequate roster player for him and we certainly don't need one for this abomination of a season.
I don't care that we just signed them:
EJ, Duchene, Varlamov, Landeskog, Parenteau, one of Barrie/Elliott, Sgarbossa, Hejduk, Downie (IR) need to stay.
McGinn should stay as well but I could see us getting one hell of a deal for him at the deadline. If someone wants to overpay like crap let them. Otherwise keep him.
Everyone else should be up for sale to the highest bidder.
