This thread has devolved into roster tweaks that will net us nothing close to contendership. If the boss believes the above quote, then the best way to get a championship level roster is to tank and draft well. Our 5 year lotto streak makes this unacceptable to many, and I fear that we're steering into Atlanta/Milwaukee type relevant irrelevancy.
Tanking is no more a proven method than trying to right the ship while keeping integrity.
No GM is going to want to come to Toronto to lose for three or four years and then MAYBE resurface out of it. That could be a career killer right there. Who of worth would find that appealing?
