Don't tell me we haven't been rebuilding all those years because we have been. You my friend must have your eyelids glued shut for the past decade.

What would you call the past 10 years???
I would never, ever call the last 10 years, anything close to a committed rebuild.
We've consistently attempted to make the playoffs. Why do you think we kept Bouw? And trade for Vokoun the year after that? We did try to do a short, two year one, that ultimately failed.
The team has never been so dismantled in order to rebuild as it has been this year. Tallon's "blueprint" is a real rebuild, not what we've done for the past 10 years.
It's not as much I've had my eyes glued shut, as you have a lack of any sort of comprehensive understanding of what a rebuild actually is.
