Ted Black interview this morning

Did anyone listen? I heard a few bits and pieces; hoping to pull a link at some point today so I can hear the full thing.

What I did hear:

-They are sticking with Darcy, they believe he has done enough in the 2 years they have been there for him to do this rebuild. Won't judge him on the past; just what he has done since they arrived.

-After next years draft, they will have 6 - 1st rounders and 8 - 2nd rounders in 4 years since they took over the franchise. They feel that is how you build a winning culture.

-They went for a cup in 3 years, and drastically fell short so now its time to build from the ground.

-Didn't want to comment on Leopold's "Grim Reaper" comment. Said he didn't know what it meant since he obviously wasn't talking about the owner or himself.

The thing I heard that I have the most problem with-

-He said they didn't have a solid pipeline of prospects when he got there and that's why they are where they are now. Well if that's the case, then why is Darcy still here? Its his fault they didn't have a solid pipeline of prospects.

Anyone else hear more they would like to add?
