You Want A Rebuild? Speeds Will Give You A Rebuild.

Speeds doesn't think a full tear-down is the right way to go under the new collective bargaining agreement, but according to him, as long as the Oilers are this far into the tear-down and rebuild, why not go the whole way?

So, the question becomes, how much rebuilding is too much? How many older player with value should the team trade, if they can get a reasonable return? What follows is an example of what the Oilers may be able to do, and what the roster might look like, if they are willing to jump over the cliff.

His suggestions? 

To CHI: Whitney
To EDM: Campbell, Leddy, Frolik, 18 OV, 36 OV, 2012 CHI 1st

To CLB: Gilbert, 31 OV
To EDM: Commodore, 8 OV

And that's just the appetizer. Read his article at Hockey Symposium to find out how he's going to get six picks in the first two rounds in addition to Nick Leddy and Michael Frolik.

If the Oilers do really have a six-year plan, and we're in year two, why not go the whole way?  Get rid of anything of value over the age of 24.  Of course, a full tear-down and rebuild means that the foremen in charge of the accidental tear-down will still be in charge, and one would assume that both of them would preside over a planned demolition and rebuild.
