    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.

    I’m watching this team throw the likes of Burrows and Gabby out on the 2nd pp unit... should this club not be using this time to develop its young players like White and Chiapik

    This clubs not going to rebuild effectively doing stuff like thet

    I think they are trying to teach the prospects that nothing is for granted. They can't get called up if they are not playing well. It will get their attention. It would be nice for them to evaluate, but you have to think this is purposely done because they are possibly not happy with certain habits or issues in their game.

    I don't necessarily think it is a bad thing to make them earn the callup. I dearly wish they were up, but they have to earn it.

    It's one thing if Chlapik and White are playing behind great AHL players like Varone... it's another when they are playing behind guys like Blunden, Reinhart, Moutrey, and Selleck. I'm guessing that those who watch the team regularly would say that Chlapik and White have been better than all of them.
