I see where your all going with building a team for 2014 but you cannot jump hurdles this fast. They should spend some pics this off-season and surround the young guys with good solid OA's. It may not be for a Championship but the value gained from them is worth it.
Rychel has been very poor the past 2 seasons in bringing in quality OA's for the Spits. He tried to salvage 10/11 by acquiring Brown and Carrick but if you recall at the beginning it was a gong show of Tarini and Clouthier. This year was barely a step up on that and right now Czinder, Posa and Braithwaite is no great shakes. To make an analogy with Rychel he's like a major league pitcher who has lost his fastball. Rychel either needs to regain his fastball or adjust and find a curveball or slider. The team still lacks picks in 2013 and have a fair share in 2014 but they're still not in good draft pick shape. The past few years of success really crippled Windsor.
