I generally agree with the idea of re-building, but DAChampion is being completely disingenuous suggesting this can be done in one year. It can't be, no chance in hell and you seemingly agreeing with him means you share the same misplaced view. It cannot be done.
I think you're misreading what he's suggesting. He's saying we take this year to deal some vets. We'll probably finish low but we sacrifice the season to get returns on our vets.
Will the actual rebuild take more than one year? Maybe. But dude... we may be in the tank whether we want to be or not. That may not be what you want to hear but it could very easily happen. We didn't try to tank last year and still finished 15th.
Better to start dealing assets now so it accelerates things. Like I said though, dealing Markov, Cole and Plecs isn't going to send us back to the stone age. We've lived without Markov for a long time anyway and Cole only joined us last year (and we tanked with him and Plecs anyway.) If we're going to sink, we'll sink with or without those guys. The only question is whether or not we want to maximize the assets before it happens.
