How would you...

Although hindsight is 20/20, how would you have rebuilt the maple leafs?

The first thing I would do is post in the thread asking this EXACT question.

Well obviously I am no NHL exec, but from my perspective the best way to rebuild this team is to bottom out a few seasons (ala Edmonton Oilers) and build through the draft.

All of the best teams in the league draft their own players rather than trying to trade draft picks or assets. Sure their is some luck involved in terms of talent in drafts, and it also falls on the executive team to assess the talent, but that is the way to build IMO.

I don't think I would have done much better than what Burke has done so far. Even in hindsight.
