Even then it takes some luck and good fortune. Look at the champions. Was LA built the same way as Pitt? Was Chicago built the same way as NJ?
Actually LA , Pitt and Chi all were, mostly by allowing the team to suck long enough to draft great players that impact the game with skill and speed not just shot blocking and effort! Like I said it takes a combination of the right choices in the draft and through trades and free agency.
You say there is no right way? Well there is certainly a wrong way and that's the way we've been doing it, we should have taken our lumps like LA, Pitt, Chi, even Boston and drafted properly, made smart UFA signings and trades etc. Instead here we are mediocre and in the middle of the pack because we do just enough to stay afloat!
