I'm not sure that management can really do that and that's one of my biggest gripes with them. Every move seems to be made in a vacuum with out any thought about how it might effect the team. Look at the timeline:

Spring 2012: "We are having trouble scoring in the playoffs"

July 24, 2012: "Yay! We traded for Rick Nash. Now we will have two top scorers!"

February 2013: "Oh no, we have no depth!"

Arpil 4, 2013: "Ok, so we traded Gaborik. Now we have depth! Yay!:

May 2013: "Oh no! We're having trouble scoring in the playoffs...:

May 29, 2013: "Torts...about that you returning next season thing...."

I agree there needs to be some sort of organizational philosophy. But this management seems incapable of deciding one. This team was built for Torts and now he's gone.
