What he should be saying is that "Cruising" or "coasting" is not acceptable regardless of where the team is at in its rebuild. The Edmonton coaches used to talk about this as well. The message you have to send during a rebuild is that people are still expected to work and play hard because that kind of character development is also needed when building a winner.
Edwards has every right to trying to ensure his investment maximizes profitability. I would do the exact same thing. How long does one need to own a team before its a marquee competitor? Id be so pissed at these GMs for failing to deliver I too would put them on a short leash. I too would start having to oversee things because if you want things done right you got to do them yourself.
