Rebuilding teams who are trying to stay competitive at the same time do. Teams can have two goals at the same time. I don't think Sather laid it out as a 7-year plan, but if you look at the makeup of our rosters post-Jagr, they're a lot more homegrown than they had been. And that's only possible because the system was rebuilt and was producing NHL quality players, although not many top end guys., admittedly.
