When Does A Reason Become An Excuse?

We've repeatedly heard it during the JD-Jarmo years. "The Jackets are one of the youngest teams in the league." Well, when a team is building up a talented roster, that's a perfectly reasonable call for patience. The Jackets are coming off a season when the Jackets went to the second round of the playoffs, we're already hearing that the Jackets are going to be one of the youngest teams in the league, again. Is this a reasonable call for patience since three near superstar level players (and, possibly a few other players) are (probably) leaving the team as free agents? Or is this just making an excuse for the fact that Jarmo went all in at the TDL (for a team that never had a realistic chance of reaching the Finals) instead of trading Bread, Bob or both at the TDL for something of value and, now, has to start rebuilding the team, yet again?
