We should keep most of the defense, maybe trade Girardi (or Staal if he doesn't want to stay) if you get a good return. Get rid of the dead wood like Pyatt, Moore (he returned 2nd rounders regularly at the deadline), Boyle etc. and play the kids.
And then in the summer draft high and smart, buy out Richards, look which prospects can step in and make maybe one key UFA signing (Vanek) and that could be enough for a good retool. We should decide whether AV really is the right coach until then as well.
You can't rebuild with Henrik on the roster. That's just impossible. If we want to rebuild the right way, then they all gotta go. Henrik is the only thing that has kept us out of that sweet spot at the top of the draft. He has made the team tank proof.
