I'm not suggesting a full blown re-build, maybe just a little shuffling.
On the block: Legwand/Fisher, SK, Hannen, Gill, Blum/Ellis.
We'd still have a great core if we could trade some dead weight and a defensive prospect or two. I may be a homer, but I believe that's a playoff team most years. Draft 5-15, maybe even dangle Blum/Ellis to get our guy, and this team's future is looking a lot better off.
If Weber leaves because he's pissed about our team after last summer that's his fault. I'm sure he's smart enough to know what our situation is. It's not like he doesn't have until he's 40 to make this team a contender again. If we manage to get two more forwards like Wilson and another Klein-esque defender then we're right around where we were last year, if not a little better.
