I agree that this team will never go through a complete rebuild...so the best we can hope for is that they start replacing the old guys with younger ones. Personally I would trade every player over 30 in a hearbeat for picks and prospects and younger players and be fine with sucking for 2 more years if it gave us a legitimate chance to put together a team that would be highly competitive for 5 or 10 years. Unfortunately that will never happen here. So the alternative is to at least hope that the team is smart enough to know they aren't 1 or 2 guys away, and not trade for guys like Forsberg at the expense of setting us back another 3-5 years. It's a vicious cycle, and despite the team saying they won't revert to the old ways, I'm still very concerned about what they might do.
