It's this sort of obscure but absolutely essential (ie, make or break) detail that none of us are tasked with understanding or really privy to.

And there are dozens more just like it.

It's why I have no confidence in anyone around here who takes themselves very seriously when they play Armchair-GM after the draft or a trade or a signing or whatever... to me it doesn't matter whether they are zealously critical of the new front office or zealously supporting it.

I zealously support those who admit that we as fans don't have all of the detailed information that goes into running a franchise. It's not that they are smarter than us... it's not a bash on fans not being capable of doing a better job. It's that as outsiders, we don't have a full picture of the details that any GM (good or bad) has when they conduct their business each day.
The 'point' is incorrect. There will still be a draft and having picks in it will still be a good thing. For some teams, having the picks will be more beneficial than for others, as a matter of fact, because of the free agency rules that will be involved in the uncapped year.
