The sanctions had, in part, to due with the flying and picking up the costs for the parents of some of the lesser players over their recent past.

The actual penalties in lost draft picks was overkill and there might be a backing off on that front, or maybe not.

Either way Portland will have a pretty decent team for at least 2 or 3 more years, after that might be a dry spell.
