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
In what ways was anything they did between trading Smyth and tanking for Hall consistent with a rebuilding team? The Vanek and Penner to offer sheets? Signing Khabibulin?

Rebuild and sucking are not the same thing.
