A full blown rebuild has to take what, five years? In reality we are about three years in given that Waddell did year one. Probably about two or three years to go before we get there.

I would like to see Chevy do something too but the prospect cupboard was laid quite bare by the trades to bring in Buff and Ladd. Our only position of organizational strength is RD. Even that though, we can afford to trade Postma, that's about it. In a year or two when Trouba comes up we can spare another player (Buff for my money but we'll see).

Next year with Scheifele we will see the first trickle of players coming in from Winnipeg's drafting. In another year or two after that hopefully the stream will turn into a torrent and we'll have lots of assets to trade. The future still looks good.

With all that said it is hugely annoying to be able to hang with Pittsburgh and just not be able to put them away.
