I realize what he is saying chasing "the dream" perhaps with an inferior team but didn't this rebuild happen 5 years ago?
He didn't count the first four years where we were horrible but actually trying to win. Those four years are what made the logical thinking fans question whether a Kevin Lowe led rebuild was ever going to lead anywhere. It's clearly a sensitive issue with him.
As far as he's concerned he doesn't consider the rebuild to have started until the team actually announced to the public that that is what their big plan was going to be and that happened very late in the 2009-2010 season.
