if they understand that playoffs this year were a marginal possibility at best and can live with a .500 season, then i would expect us to dump a lot of players at the deadline but not do much before
At the rate things are going, unless this team makes a major push heading toward the Olympic break, I'd much rather see us doing the latter than dealing our already-limited assets for a shot at an 8th seed and first round exit. Let's clear out some of the dead wood, stack some draft picks, and make a point to target one or two players that will fill some gaping holes (i.e. scorers) in the off-season, while also giving some room for some of the younger guys to have a shot at the roster.
