Not everything has to be so black and white on this site, Calgary can without a doubt rebuild without going down the road of our neighbors to the north.

Shortened season? check
Ability to retain salary in a trade? check
Ageing yet still productive core pieces? check
Strong draft class from all accounts? check

These are opportunities that the Oilers did not have for the most part.

I can't help but to think that Calgary would be missing a HUGE opportunity here if they were to remain status quo at the deadline this season. We have stagnated as an organization and changes are needed. If 3-5 losses is what it takes to get management and ownership to realize this then I could get on board with that.
This is pretty much how I feel about our situation.

Of course I want the team to win when I watch them, but if I remove myself emotionally from the situation the best course of action becomes very obvious.
