True rebuilds don't really work all the time. IE (Oilers, NYI, Panthers, Jackets)..."Blowing Up" this team would result in a 3-5 year rebuild where we don't make the playoffs which would end up being 5-7 years without playoffs (IE. Leafs) Do we really want that? There is still no guarentee we are even contenders at that point. There is simply to much parity in hockey to be worried about "blowing our team up".

Put together the best possible roster each year, draft the best possible player with each pick, pick the most proven GM/Coach Combo you can get, make trades that will improve your team, and pick up FA's that will make you a contender.. IMO that is really all you can do. I don't really believe in the "Blow Up" model. However, I do want a top 6 pick this year, since it will be the only reward from having to watch this team this season.
