Re: Something that gets overlooked with trades like this (I'm loving Krivsky BTW)
Great post Ed...WK is not sitting on his hands. We can always argue that talent for talent...someone won and someone lost...but we often take the entire trade out of context.
Krivsky is trying to identify which parts to build around and which to discard....which can be replaced within and which have to be replaced from the outside. I don't suspect that I will ever agree with all the trades any GM makes...but we probably need to look at the overall impact on the team. If the team plays better and wins more games...then it was a good move.
No GM is ever perfect in his trades. He will win some and lose some. If Krivsky wins most of the trades and the team consistantly gets better...then I'm in the boat...
There and Back Again...
