I was a bit lacking with my description, because you're right about those years. I suppose I just lump together all the years between the sacking of veterans to when we definitively entered a rebuild. '17 we looked to be actually going down that path to a large degree, and the bookend of 2020 is such an anomaly that it's probably unfair to even consider it within the context of other years (with the exception of the fact that offseason was the one we bit the rebuild bullet.)100% agree. Not so much 2017. But definitely 2018 and 2019.
How much does the current board resemble the 2016 one? IIRC it's mostly changed. Either way while I largely agree with you, I'm glad they have started (and it is only a start) to clean up the mess they helped create.The board has escaped blame unfairly I think.
Though I also believe they have done very well in off field matters. Especially the girls team
Ok, so that's one club in one year. What about the others?It's the perfect rebuttal. The Bullies smashed the draft and are reaping the rewards.
I don't even know how we rank compared to them all, but I don't think saying that one of the better teams of the last 5 years once got better bang for their buck with similar picks is really much of a kill shot.
