What I did say was you let the kids play, make smart, cheap UFA signings and let that team finish were it naturally should given its talent level. Not keep propping the team up just so it's good enough to win a playoff round or two. When you accumulate asserts then you can start making trades after you assess what you have and if need be you go out and get the one or two missing pieces through free agency! That way you have cost controlled talent and don't need to pay through the nose to get it !
I think we have found good players later on in the draft (Lundy, Stepan, Cally, Hags, Fast)
I'm sincerely not being critical of your plan. I'm just trying to nail down what it is. You said let the kids play but then imply you would trade the kids like Stepan that we have already drafted. How long does your plan take? Is Lundy a part of it? What place do we end up drafting in your plan? Do you keep the guys we already drafted?
