The players, however, can and should be subject to that "worry" that - if they don't perform - they will be dealt.
Problem is, that hasn't happened in the past, and is one of the main reasons we're where we are right now:
You don't think Ruff and Regier have grown a bit complacent? They're about to miss the playoffs for the sixth time in 10 seasons in a league in which more than half the teams make the playoffs. And all they hear is about how they "ain't going nowhere," while their bosses implicitly or expressly state that this isn't their fault, and the finger is pointed at the roster, which, of course, Ruff and Regier built together.
These guys are about as comfy as a coach and GM can be in professional sports.
