Totally onboard with your categories concerning rebuild and retool. Sad that we have to win before our stars have to get paid. Really depressing actually. Can this team keep it's stars in the depressed economic state of the franchise. The lower the revenues the less likely. Unless Melnyk's companies discover a cure for cancer or something, this team is in deep trouble. He is either saying why keep EK if the team is not a contender and money loser. Or he is saying without EK he loses more money. Let's hope for the latter.
