Nothing impressive, creative or satisfying by stripping the team of all its talent in the effort to collect a bunch of draft picks in the hope of opening up a 3 year window of ELCs to try and compete before doing it all over again.
But it's not really years of losing. It's literally 48 games. With the right trades we could end up with 6 picks in the top 60, one of those being top 5. In a deep draft!

That means in the past 2 years we'd have done the rebuilding that some teams take 5 years to achieve.

Gally
Colberg
Hudon
Vail
Thrower
Top 5
1st(traded for)
2nd
2nd
2nd
2nd (traded for)

In basically a year and a half's worth of games. No brainer.
