People keep bringing up that the fact we resigned Lundqvit means we aren't trying to rebuild...I'd agree usually but I feel we are in a unique scenario here that means otherwise:

Lundqvist is having an off year. He isn't single handedly carrying this team to wins like in years past. This presents us with a unique opportunity to get a high draft pick while he struggles this year.

Major pieces of the core are becoming UFAs: prime opportunity to trade them for young players/picks/etc if that's what management would want to do.

With lundqvist having an off year, a single year 'retool' I feel is possible and can be effective. Now if you want to argue that we have inept management that can't do this effectively...won't argue with you there.
