No they wouldn't.
You just hit the nail on the head. We do this EVERY YEAR. Every year we make a window dressing move that isn't going to really help us. The GM doesn't have to do this. The GM SHOULDN'T do this. If the move isn't going to help get us closer to a cup then DON'T DO IT. We have to start learning from our mistakes.
We should make moves. But the moves don't need to be for a 'name' player. A shutdown guy, that would be good enough. A power forward is something we do need but at least get a shutdown guy. Don't make window dressing moves.
You say the fans demand these kinds of moves? Just ignore those demands. They'll still fill the arenas and we'll get better teams to boot. Nobody is going to walk away...
