isn't that viewed as intentionally losing the 13-14 season?
(when things are framed that way... i don't like the context of the argument to begin with... just curious how others would view it as presented)
Yes. I think that's the objective. Give kids a ton of playing time, but the roster will be set up for failure. It's not like you're poisoning the water bottles, but you're not giving them a chance from the get-go.
What GM in the history of the world has ever used the word "suffering" to describe the current plan? It's going to happen.
Weirdly, I'm okay/excited for it. I genuinely believe it's the right move long term.
