If you want to win its best to increase your odds by having more and better options to choose from. It all starts with the draft, if you can't develop stars then you have to draft good enough to trade for them, just be prepared for people to be upset when those homegrown guys get shipped out.
Okay so if you just replaced Slats today with a 4 year contract. What are you going to do get all those losing seasons and higher draft picks? Trade away all our better young players like Stepan, Hags, Lundy, Staal, Mcd? Tell them not to win? What would be your plan?
