"Yeah we are gonna suck for half a decade, get used to it people!" . I always take what management says with a grain of salt. Is management parroting what ownership wants, do they actually believe what they are saying, are they putting out statements to calm down the fan base? Its politics. And so what if he did like the core players and thought it could be turned around in a hurry. The year following that quote the team got 100+ points (from 83 points in 2014). Id call that a turn around. Problem is it was the last gasp for that core. Not to mention, much of that core fell off significantly shortly afterwards. Higgins, Bieksa, Hamhuis, and the Sedins were still productive but after 2015 they took a big slide, not to mention three straight years of significant injuries.
