Rebuilds are hard to gauge, obviously ours hasn't gone as great as we'd all have hoped.

But the Islanders and Tampa Bay have been all over the place in their rebuilds too ... looks like the Islanders are in trouble again this year and Tampa just recently missed the playoffs to be able to take Drouin, another high pick.

Colorado sucked worse than us just 8 months ago. Lets see how Calgary does as a franchise without Kiprusoff there to turn their fortunes, they were awful before he got there and are coming back to earth pretty quickly. Though yes, I will give them that Burke has a solid track record.

Sometimes rebuilds can look like they're going well early on too ... we all thought we were on the right track with Gagner/Cogs/Nilsson and almost damn near made the playoffs.

We need to get more players on the roster who create open ice with size and can go retrieve pucks. Joensuu is a good pick up, need about 1-2 more of him. And we need an defensive upgrade on our top 4 that isn't a rookie.
