Its better to go into a rebuild now than end up getting stuck where San Jose is. Ovi, Backstrom, Oshie, Holtby, Carlson, Orlov, Kuznetsov and Eller are all declining. Its better to trade some of them now than wait and have them end up becoming terrible contracts</div></div>
The only players out of the ones you listed that are declining are Ovi and Backy, and Ovi is still one of the best goal scorers and Backstrom is still a 1st/2nd line center. Carlson is 30, Kuzy is 28, Orlov is 29 and Eller is 31. You think those guys are declining? Carlson and Eller had career years. Oshie is 33 but still put up the same numbers as he has since he was 26. Better players who are 28-31 generally do not decline.
