That seems backwards to me. It only works if there are almost no limits on the possibilities for who you can put on the roster, which is obviously not the case. The strongest limitations are going to be on roster moves (at least high impact ones) so the strategy is going to have to be formed at least in part based on what GMGM knows he can do building the roster.

Obviously the coach needs to have his freedom to make tactical adjustment from day to day (or shift to shift or whatever) but the coach can't dictate an overall strategy unless GMGM knows he can build the team to fit it. It's much easier to make things flow in the opposite direction. And, assuming both the roster moves and the strategic planning can be done intelligently, I'd argue it's the better course of action to take.
