Again Ward, we're on exactly the same page.
The best GMs, like Hunter and Rychel recognize when they have a good team with a few stars, but not a championship team and they have the guts to sell high, gain a ton of picks and young players and gear up for a real run.
Fans are intelligent these days. I talk to legions of fans at the Aud and to a person, they're all fine with a year of struggles to build a winner. The fans have shown they'll support the kids and wait for them to blossom. What the fans have no patience for is boring, middling hockey.
Sadly, I think the "sell" idea is a pipe dream. For one, Spott has promised his vets he'd go for it. Two, he seems stuck on this idea we're a contender and just have to find ways to score. Three, he's away until almost the deadline, so he'll be delinquent in his GM duties I'm sure.
I expect he'll do what he always does - more or less stand pat, but add one or two decent pieces without changing any systems or approaches to the game. He'll throw resources at the problem and just hope and assume it'll work. And we'll be left holding the bag next year.
