Regarding the Flames and their coaching and management, that could change. If it doesn't, maybe they did learn from us. They weren't smart enough to figure out they needed to rebuild when it was plain for everyone to see.
IF you decide the rebuild started with the Hall draft or the oilers picking the date.

I have been arguing for awhile the start date was the moment Smyth got traded for O'Mera, Nilson and a first that for me is the start date-- after that the oilers just refeused to admit that they were in the rebuild--all moves. they did in the three years after that trade--almost all were stupid. Bad trades and signings. For me this is year 7 ( I start with the Gagner draft)But it makes people and the oiler management to say the rebuild started with the Hall draft--but it started before that
