Trial and error. You see what works and weed out what doesn't. You learn and you move forward.
The experts are idiots if they thought those ancillary moves alone were going to fill all of the needs this team had and still does. They didn't spend the large amount of cap space and went into the season lacking both a No. 2 C and a top 4 D (as well as a few other things). They opted to do nothing during the season for whatever reason. Mind you, we lost Campbell as well, one of the better players on the team. Signing Mayers and Montador wasn't going to put this team over the top and I don't recall anyone thinking it would. If they did, they were wrong, along with the experts.
And I still think the team during the cap hell year was better than the one we had this year. That's a ****ing a sad fact. Either way, neither was good enough, not even close.
