There are so many interpretations of what "rebuilding" is - but I think the ambiguity that we've heard from all 3 men (Black, Regier and Pegula) on what their real focus with the roster is certainly leads me to think they are talking about making a pitch from Lecavalier. Hradek and Jaffe on NHLN also theorized the Sabres as a possible suitor.

Then again, if Regier is jaded on the recruiting problem and fearful of losing out, despite big money being offered, on a marquee name to other teams, maybe they don't even consider it.

Still, I can see Pegula wanting to try....
I say this all of the time, but if Pegula has any say in these matters it's a very serious problem.
