And more to the point, after seeing what Luongo could do, instead of improving the team by replacing those stiffs with better players he replaced them with arguably worse stiffs and surprise surprise missed the playoffs altogether.
You are correct on which stiffs made the playoffs.

What you are incorrect on is that Nonis was in a rebuild which consisted of the following:

1)Transition the Sedins to top line players
2)Replenish the farm
3)wait out old contracts
4)Hire a new coach and change the system

Gillis is not in a rebuild nor is this an underdog team like the Nonis era.
