As of right now I'm very frustrated with the Band-Aid approach and I think that it couldn't be any more obvious that now is the time to rebuild.
I agree that we shouldn't do a band-aid approach. I think you go with this team as it is until the deadline nears. If they are well out of it, do what needs to be done and start from near scratch.

I disagree that Staal and Callahan would still be here, though. Staal has quietly been one of our worst defensemen this season. Both he and Callahan are too old to be of much use by the time the team comes out of a full rebuild.

If they go full rebuild, they move everyone except the kids, and young vets under 23/24 (so the kids and Moore, McD, MDZ, Stepan and maybe Hagelin). Everyone else gets moved.
