The last couple of seasons have been to prepare for next year, but if you're not going to get the Cup, you might as well start from scratch and try for 2017.
Hold on though you think going for it wasn't a bad idea but you want a start from scratch this year? So you gave the team last year a grand total of 30 games to see what they could do and now want to pull the plug? That is the exact definition of poor management. I have news for you if you want to start a rebuild it needs to start in June by shipping out some of the vets. Holding on to the group of Sieloff, Koekkoek, Rychel, Vail, Marchese, Johnson(only mentioning him because he's 19), Ebert until the deadline you can't move all those guys because the deadline is going to be quiet due to the OHL hosting. If Barrie gets it you might be able to get London to be interested in some of those guys but nobody in the east will want to compete against Barrie. If London hosts you won't find any other buyers in the west and may have issues finding a buyer in the east. Once you find out you don't get the cup you have to start jettisoning players asap and this is why at the deadline last year was silly giving a crew 30 games to see what they could do after 1.5 years of mediocre results.
