Well no need to wonder, I knew in 2010 that this rebuild was a failure as soon as we didn't bring anyone in to help Hall and Eb's(more then most teams need to build around). Then in 2011 after RNH when our prized acquisition of the off season was "top pairing" d man Cam barker I knew we were totally f'd. Unfortunately fans took the tale that we're Pittsburgh/Chicago/Boston in the making hook line and sinker. We rebuilt like the Atlanta Thrashers circa 1999-2003, and the majority of the fanbase is now just clueing into it.
The tales of Pittsburg/Chicago/Boston always ended with those teams clearing out the old management groups and hiring some of the most promising executives and hockey minds in the league.

The Oilers hired Mactavish instead.
