The point isn't how long is the Oilers rebuild taking, it's how on earth you could justify how much shorter the Flames rebuild will be given what's there. Monahan is not and likely never will be Taylor Hall. In terms of timeline comparison, he would be their Magnus Paajarvi pick, no?
I think thats in large part due to the incompetence of Oiler management because the roster has been so imbalanced.
I think the Flames will do better than that with Burke on their Management team.
Time will tell.
Burke has managed one balanced team in his entire tenure. It lasted two seasons, if that.
