I don't agree with it but it is a fact of life.
Oh of course. This team has been in "win now" mode for nearly 9 decades. 4 Cups to show for it, only one of those in close to 3 quarters of a century. I don't necessarily think we have to strip the team bare and tank like Buffalo, but we should start stockpiling picks and identifying young, solid players that are made available and can be obtained for a reasonable price. No more trading picks like candy for overage and overpriced has beens. People **** on Clark and Gorton but don't mention that Sather loves to trade picks for veteran duds. Teams like Chicago and LA stockpile picks even when their team is contending such that they always have a ton of prospects waiting in the wings, even if a majority of them don't pan out.

Also an organizational philosophy wouldn't hurt.
