The goal for GM's is not to worry so much about the future. And by Future, I am talking 5+ years.
Most "future mortgaging" that goes on allows teams to retain a window of competitiveness of at least 2-3 years.
Lets let teams manage the way they want to manage. Stop trying to have each team run operations the same way.
I hope that what you insinuate NEVER happens.
the league would be so boring if teams never gambled on trying to do their ******* jobs.
