[QUOTE=Stretch Factor;59832557]As a lifelong fan of the CBJ and Cleveland Pro Sports Teams, I've had a lot of experience with this topic of losing for draft position. The argument comes up with every losing team as the draft nears, should we lose for a better pick.

My goal for the CBJ is the same as my goal for the Indians, Browns, and Cavs- win multiple championships.

In order to win multiple championships all my teams need to get better talent. You get better talent by drafting elite players, no matter what sport.

The CBJ are an excellent example of how to screw up a draft. They consistently win just enough games to miss out on the elite talent.

Right there with you stretch, been following these teams for over 50 years, Jackets since they came into the league. I remember the old Columbus Seals and would go to the fairgrounds to watch those games.

I was just talking to my brother how the Jackets kind of paralel the Browns since the Browns reurn. It's kind of scary.
