He wouldn't have been given six years, no. But, he would have a set plan and kept a relatively similar roster as they built towards a cup contender. You can reinvent yourself as a team every other season and expect to just compete. Guys grow as a core and then you add some pieces as you think you're getting closer to a cup run. LA certainly caught lightning in a bottle, but they've also had a set plan ever since Lombardi got there. Homer just throws **** against the wall and hopes it sticks. I love the Flyers for their aggression in trying to always get better, but sometimes a more conservative route would lead to more success.
