You wanna know when it happened? December 2009, when an injury decimated Oilers were bottom of the league and Katz went onto the radio saying, basically, "screw it, we need to start over".
EH? Going after those two among other things is the exact opposite of a 'rebuild'. The oilers fell into a rebuild because they failed at almost everything they put their hands to and were clearly forced into it. Giving our front office credit for a masterfully planned rebuild is hilarious. After stinking it up so bad and with a few injuries it became apparent that yes we really are a bottom 5 team in the league they brought up the rebuild term as if there was some grand plan.
