I consider the end of the 07-08 season the start of the rebuild. This is what our opening night lineup looked like that year:

Goaltenders
39 Rick DiPietro
34 Wade Dubielewicz

Defensemen
32 Brendan Witt 24 Radek Martinek
25 Andy Sutton 47 Marc-Andre Bergeron
14 Chris Campoli 8 Bruno Gervais

Forwards
16 Jon Sim 18 Mike Sillinger 7 Trent Hunter
26 Ruslan Fedotenko 89 Mike Comrie 13 Bill Guerin
11 Andy Hilbert 63 Josef Vasicek 81 Miroslav Satan
20 Sean Bergenheim 10 Richard Park 27 Darryl Bootland

I believe, the only prospect we had of note was Kyle Okposo.

This is why it's taken so long. For the people that have pissed and moaned about how slow it's been, and charged that we have made no progress....

I want you to look at that roster long and hard. I want you to look at what we have now both at the NHL level and in the minors. Ruslan Fedotenko was on our first line.... Andy Hilbert was on our second line. Think about that for a moment, and be happy where we are right now.
Haha wow that line up was terrible. I won't lie, I thought Jon Sim was a great pick up. I liked him in Atlanta and thought he would get better shot at succeeding playing more minutes for us. In short my predictions are terrible
