In your heart of hearts, are you really expecting anything more than a first or second round playoff exit and then the same old cluster**** of salary problems in the offseason?

Might as well sell off some assets now (and as I said before, I think this team can make the playoffs without a Prospal or Higgins or Girardi). I think Prospal, in particular, could fetch a worthwhile pick. Its time to start putting some sort of long-term plan into effect, because this team isnt going to be a contender for another couple of years. Might as well start building for that moment now.
I'm not going argue that at all. But, you have to add realism to this, and there's no way in hell that Sather is going to be able to do something like that. How are you going to convince your boss that losing millions might, MIGHT, bring you further success down the road? It's not happening and if I were Dolan, I wouldn't sign off on that either.
