Seems counter productive to me.
I agree and I think it's a pointless discussion anyway. Their contracts are going nowhere.

I disagree. They have a fair supporting cast now, and the team is still below .500. Strip off more assets (like Vinnie, Girardi, and Higgins), drop Gaborik from 21:00 to 18:00 minutes per night, and give Lundmark more nights off. Do all that and this team might well finish fifth worst in the league.
