And it's probably fairly unrealistic. There's only 1 buyout available this summer so Booth and Ballard cannot both be bought out. And if Luongo could be moved for picks and prospects without money coming back it probably would've already happened.
If you want to do a mini rebuild you have to trade someone that actually has some value or else you're just spinning your wheels. All the team would get out of Raymond and Higgins is some 2nd or 3rd round picks. That paltry return probably isn't worth throwing away the season for.
Thats why this summer we got a chance to rebuild this team. Take a look at this summers roster during free agency with no changes.
