Murray (our GM) has been like Feaster in that they always try to be competitive (unlike Oilers). Our rebuild draft hasn't given its fruit yet, so a rebuild isn't completely necessary, just need to be smart and evaluate properly as many have said.
Which is exactly what Feaster has been doing. People seem to forget that when he took over the club they were right at the cap, seemingly every player had a NMC and they were one of the oldest clubs in the in the NHL.

In his first offseason he managed to trade 3 contracts with an NTC or NMC that combined for more than $11 million against the cap and only took back about $4 million in cap hits. Then the new acquisitions played just as well as the players that were traded! I know some like to look down on the Regehr move but man Feaster sold Regehr right before his value bottomed out.
