We're debuting a new series at ESPN Insider called "State of the Rebuild." We'll take a look at NHL organizations building for the future, analyzing their path to eventual success by my analysis of their players, discussions with people around the league and insights from people in the organization. Each file will also include a recap of how the club got where it is today, along with key strengths and remaining weaknesses.

Our first team up is the Arizona Coyotes.
