Having a bad year this season doesn't trigger some intense rebuild. I think a high draft pick combined with a good free agency(desperately need a top 4 dman, badly need a top 3 forward) could be the way to do it the way the Flyers did it in 07.

Look at all of the "elite" teams in the league. They all have a stud defenseman, yes, but they also all have that face of the franchise forward as well. Kopitar, Toews, Crosby, Bergeron...a pick even in the top 6 or 7 could guarantee getting that. The nice thing about it is that most of them...Mackinnon, Drouin, Barkov, Monahan...all have a great defensive game to go along with the offense. There shouldn't be an issue with stepping right into Trotz's system.
