I don't think he's delusional enough to think that.
I don't think he's the type that does a full tear-down and rebuild
, but he obviously is in a form of rebuild, that was brought on by his star leaving town, and his core aging. It's fairly obvious that this wasn't a playoff team coming into the year, and I don't think Lamoriello saw anything in the roster that anyone else didn't. I will give you guys credit though, you are better than you look on paper.
No and thank god he isn't, we don't want to go through what the Oilers have been doing last 7 years, that's gotta be depressing as a fan.
