The team had just gone to the Cup, but these decisions were already in effect...the owner said do what's necessary...but the options are limited in FA and trades when no one is killing to sign with you, and you have no prospect depth to trade for good players.
Not many guys better to handle a rebuild then Murray...3 years won't be long enough to finish it.
I understand the dominos just fine. I'm not going to rehash the argument, but the reality is that while Murray inherited a tough situation, we wouldn't have been as bad as we currently are had the majority of his pro transactions not blown up in his face.
