most teams and LA has been part of the culture is that making a trade will result in upgrading the team. aka, 'the grass is always greener on the other side'. well folks where has that gotten the org? no place. i think LA was at absolute rock bottom in '06 when DL took over from Taylor. as i noted earlier DT made 90 picks during his tenure and to date only 4 remain (all roster players in LA). the depth in the org was absolute crap and is just now to the point of being healthy, with the exception of talented scoring wingers.
