This team needs more talent, It's the perfect year to tank and getting a guy like Mackinnon would go a long way for this franchise.
I do agree that I'd rather be awful than mediocre. Mediocrity begets mediocrity. But I just can't
bring myself to cheer/hope this team loses.
I guess on my scale of what I'd like to see my teams be it's:
1) At the top (AKA: Playoff bound in any way, shape or form)
2) At the bottom (AKA: Solid draft selection)
3) Mediocre (No where near the top of the draft and just missing out on playoffs. This is purgatory and is NO good!)*
*= This is acceptable if you dealt a player to a poor team who in turn gave you a high first rounder.
Having said that, I still can't root for the team to lose.
