DeKort still provides more value to a rebuilding Spits team then Kuchemy will in a trade while Kuchemy looked solid enough during the last two training camps to deserve a shot in the O, even if it is playing on a rebuilding team.
An older rookie will likely deal with the tough times of a rebuild better than a younger one while still allowing Windsor to bring in a youngster to back up and get some semi regular starts to get a taste of the league.
Time to rebuild this team the right way, take the lumps of a full rebuild giving some kids a chance to play while dealing to add some much needed assets to a team that can desperately use them.
A proper rebuild can be tough to go through but if done properly can pay off a couple of seasons down the road.
Since the OHL champ will be declared Monday night you should expect the 2014 Memorial Cup host to be announced Tuesday or more than likely Wednesday. Once that happens the Spits will be able to get down to the rebuilding process in short order...problem is, if as expected, they don't get the host gig their chances of picking up a couple of prime US players who might have jumped on the Memorial Cup bandwagon all but disappears. Those two years you mention will be difficult if
the people evaluating the talent don't do a much better job than they have the last few seasons.
