Can the Sharks learn from the Philadelphia Flyers’ rebuild?
In March, Danny Briere took over as Flyers general manager.
He said immediately, about a team that was about to be a third straight season out of the Stanley Cup playoffs, “I don’t think this is a quick fix. That’s my belief and that’s why I’m not afraid to use the word rebuild.
“Rebuild doesn’t mean fire sale, and there’s a big difference between the two.”
Sharks GM Mike Grier, on the other hand, was not as forthcoming after he traded Timo Meier in February, “I still don’t think it’s a full-on rebuild. People always kind of want to put a label on it.”
The Sharks are four years and running out of the postseason.
