Do you think our core is going to want to waste 3 or so years of their prime in ANOTHER rebuild/re-tool/whatever-you-want-to-call-it??

Lets assume we sign Ribeiro to a somewhat reasonable deal (for the sake of arguing 3 years at $5 million per tho he will SURELY get more)

OK we have our 2nd line center and we will go into next year with pretty much the same team. We'll still have plenty of holes and altho we have some cap space it won't be a ton.

Our young goalies and dmen will still need more seasoning as will Forsberg and Wilson should they make the team.

We are not going to expedite this. Its gonna take time and 2014-2015 is reasonable for us to make a run. By then Backstrom and Ovie will still be in their prime..Ribeiro will be on the decline.
