They have only been in the cellar for one season, which led to Taylor Hall. Now we are in the cellar for another season which will lead to a top three pick - according to some posters this is exactly what we should be doing if we are rebuilding. If you're not of that belief, that's fine, but I'm curious to know what your timeline for leading a team out of the cellar is? It's only been two seasons after all.
Also, I'm in no way defending or criticizing Tambellini's performance. I just think any reasonable individual would give him a bit more time. For me the clock starts on July 1. Then we'll have Hall + one other top three pick and it will be reasonable to expect Tambellini to start acquiring the useful pieces that have been missing this season and last.
