I'd be interested if any team in the NHL has had as much roster turnover since then.
Most associate rebuilding as starting over and building through the draft and by trading away older vets for youth. I would call what the flyers did more of retooling. I look at the oilers as a team that did a true rebuild. The flyers still kept a mix of vets around and traded for new ones as well in Mez, Grossman, Lecavalier, etc.
