Honestly we're handcuffed until we drop Drury and Redden so tanking really doesn't help us out too much. I'd rather make the playoffs for the next two years and then actually make a push at being a contender when we'll have the open cap space to do so. Would it help to stockpile young talent? Probably but it's not a total win no matter what we do. The difference between getting the 5th pick and the 14th pick really isn't that high as far as getting a decent player. It really comes down to scouting more than anything else. The percentage of getting a good player is certainly higher early on but it's no sure deal. Establishing ourselves as a perennial playoff team while continuing to make smart moves is a business plan that works short-term and long-term. Prospal is a major part of our team right now. Tanking might help but, as long as we make smart moves, we'll be fine. Sather's tenure has been pretty garbage but, from comparing what the roster looked like at the end of last year to how it looks now, we've only improved.
