As usual I worded that in a clunky way. When I say "view the team from a Cup or bust perspective" I mean when evaluating talent and needs. A better way to phrase it would be viewing the roster with the Cup in mind. I think most people view it as "Do we have a good team or a bad team" and you have to go far beyond that.
