Comments: Bondra out

Rebuilding can be great for the fans. I'm a Redwing fan. Are they exciting to watch? Not really. On a lot of nights I'm turning to a game with Edmonton, Minnesota, or one of the Florida teams. Check out Florida holding Buffalo, which scored 21 goals in the previous 3 games, to one goal. Or Edmonton beating Colorado, fer chrissake. Rebuilding is a great chance to see real hockey.

I've often wondered if the Juggernaut thing gets old after the first year.

Rebuilding is great when all those young players and extra draft picks you got start to come together. In the early stages, as it is right now with the Caps, it sucks.

The problem the Caps had was not recognizing the need to rebuild, and thinking another "superstar" could turn things around. Somebody there forgot rule 1- it's a team sport.
