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.
We will see. I expect it to be more of the build-for-the-future type moves. If it isn't, it isn't. But suffering isn't moving draft picks for proven assets. Suffering emplies a lot of OJT, learning by trial and error, players growing into positions and situations and that implies mistakes: chances and goals against, missed opportunities, and ultimately losses.
