That 1-3 years, unfortunately, we don't have the luxury of waiting in this market for.
If we go through a overhaul phase where we have to miss the playoffs during that time to get ramped up again....the Preds will be in KC, Las Vegas, or Houston because season ticket sales will again plummet....corporate sponsors will dry up even more and we won't hit revenue sharing marks.
David Legwand told me, point blank, that he will not resign with this team if it goes into rebuilding mode....and I am sure he is not the only one that feels that way.

No, this decision, has to be done in the right way....with a proven winner that doesn't need to tinker alot with personnel to bring his winning systems and techniques to Nashville......time will tell if that person is out there and wants to take the Preds to a higher level.
