Maybe Bizzaro world KLowe.

Not all of KLowe's moves were winners and certainly some of his plans could be questioned but that doesn't change that KLowe always seemed to have a plan and was for the most part always able to get deals done to help realize that plan.

Tambellini has not shown the willingness or ability do either.

I dont think it would take 3-4yrs. This year we end up with a top 3 pick and possibly trade some vets along the way to get another 1 or 2 first round picks then voila. Looks at how quickly Colorado turned things around with some saavy draft picks and a good goalie.

Hall
Paajarvi
Eberle
Lander
Nash

Very solid young core with some size imo as only Eberle is under 6'.

a rebuild would be complete when the players youve suggested are contributing solidly and this team is winning and being successful aka playoff pushes. that is going to take at least 3 or 4 years. were not making any serious moves in the near future as far as position in the standings. nash and lander are far from locks and as much as they are solid prospects their contribution to this team could be considered unknown. and dont count Hall as a prospect. were 30 games into the season and were callin 1st overall pick. lots can happen in a season. this is the same team that went 6-2-1 so theres definitely potential to achieve some mediocre output that would lead us out of bottom 5.

however this rebiuld begins on the trade deadline and makes a 360 turn come draft day assuming we are in top 2.

Are Lander and Nash any good? I know they are supposed to be good 2 way centers but that is such a vague description. We all hear for just about every player.

Tambellini quote on the possibility of changes or a re-build:

"Oh, I'm not thinking about next year. It's November."

Correction, it's December tomorrow and you're clearly delusional.

I don't want to be the Caps, Pens or Hawks.

I want to be the Wings or Avs. A shot at the big one almost every single year.

Re-load. BUT ACTUALLY re-load. None of this 9th-best-player-we-coulda-got-and-no-depth-cuz-we-wanna-try-out-our-young'ns crap.
in order to re-load, we needed to be loaded in the 1st place

which we are not

I would love to be the Pens, Hawks or Caps...they got franchise players and are young enough to compete for the Cup for a long time
