hard to believe that Brodie or Giordano were kept b/c of the "we're rebuilding with them" reason as opposed to the "we didn't get a good enough offer in return for them"...
Agreed on most of your post. But why wouldn't we rebuild with Brodie? The guy is 22. Lots of defensemen aren't even in the NHL at his age. Assuming it takes 2-5 years to rebuild he'd be 24-27 years of age at the end of it.
