If they more smartly manage their player acquisition at the professional level, they may rebuild faster.

I have no faith in either Jay Feaster or Brian Burke to accomplish that for them.
I'd compare it to the 07-09 mini-rebuild for the Oilers thus far. Guys like Monahan, Baertschi, Klimchuk have that Gagner-Eberle-MPS vibe to them for me. Hell - even Jankowski feels like a Riley Nash pick to me. They haven't had a chance to grab that Hall/RNH/Yakupov talent yet - but likely will in the next 3 years. Quite a crop for them to pick from.

Reinhart/Ekblad, McDavid, Benson
