Other franchises have built a competitive team in 1 or 2 years without sacrificing the future so this is not an unrealistic goal. It is difficult and requires skill, planning and sometimes a bit of luck but it is not impossible and especially over four year period.

And the person suggesting for the leafs to sacrifice the future was you. To me it looks like you are letting your bias of sacrificing the future to effect the goal of creating a competitive team both now and in the future.
