I get what you are saying. But if Colorado's rebuild started when they drafted Duchene, then the Oilers ARE behind. Colorado finished IN the playoffs in 2010, a year after they started their rebuild, a year after Edmonton started theirs, they drafted RNH.

Hard to compare the 2, Oilers have clearly been worse during their "rebuild" than Colorado has been. Last year the totally underachieved and i am 99% sure they tanked on purpose. Sacco was the worst coach in the universe.
