Have any of you scouted this guy, or are you just looking at "3 years" and fainting? Think of it this way...if GMGM's moves at this point don't turn things around, they may not matter that much because he could be out and someone else will have to scuttle the **** anyway.
The easy answer is that your "rebuild:" point is more or less total bunk. It's exceptionally rare for a guy to turn it on to that extent that late in their careers. If they haven't made it to the NHL by, like, 25, they're very unlikely to become something later on.
