But the team as currently constructed isn't built to win a cup, and we don't have the assets in the organization to make this team into a cup contender. Do you agree or disagree with that statement? Because if you agree, then how to YOU propose that we change that? Are we back to your "everyone just player better" plan?

No matter what path the organization takes, whether it's drafting, trading, signing free agents, or any combination thereof, they have to be smart decisions. We don't have enough elite talent to compete for a cup. Signing elite talent as UFAs hasn't worked out for us. We need to find elite talent either through the draft or through smart trades. And when I say trades, I mean the Gomez for McD type rather than the Dubi and Artie for Nash type. Of course, the first type requires a modicum of patience.
