(Although, I've never been a big fan of backlot either...) I think that if a new coaster comes in 2017 it should be there. They could also fix up the area by adding a new entrance to the waterpark. Also, if it's a tall enough coaster and goes out far enough to the west, it might just be visible from I-95? :o Although they don't have to add a new coaster, maybe they will have GCI retrack it like they are doing with ghostrider at Knott's? I honestly don't know... But I just really hope that this is more than just hurler maintenance...
GCI is actually retracking three woodies next year (not entirely, but still) so I´d imagine that if KD decides to keep the ride a retrack is in the near future.

Grizzly is great but I loved Rebel Yell. It's all airtime all the way, plus I have a serious soft spot for racers.
As far as Hurler goes? I hope the "maintenance" involves a few cans of kerosene and an ignition source.
I haven't been on KD's Hurler in close to ten years, but I rode the version at Carowinds in 2014. If KD's version is anything like the Carowinds model, then yes, kill it with fire. Kill it slowly and painfully.

I rode both within a month of each other last year and KD's was much worse!! Seems like Carowinds takes better care of their's, though both versions should be burned at the stake!!
