That's right. And it STILL worked.

Imagine how much better it would've been for them if they'd just rebuilt on purpose? They would've accelerated the process and gotten things over sooner. The fact that they tanked unintentionally proves more than anything that rebuilding works.

No one is against building through the draft, it's a key and vital area, but it's a small piece of big puzzle.
Please spare me the Xbox ******** when all I see here all the time is how we can get Corey Perry to sign with us. That kind of crap doesn't work. Rebuilding does.
