There's also plenty of teams like Florida and Columbus who draft high every season and still ****.

Tanking and drafting is no guarantee.
I said tanking was one option.

I said the main option is being smart in free agency. I said Sather has made plenty of bad offseason signings and it has kept us in that cycle I was talking about.

EDIT: And it's not really tanking, it's rebuilding (not necessarily losing on purpose) but still I said the cycle is broken through smart free agency.
