Ehh, it would be nice to know the actual thoughts/plans of the people in charge, but I question the actual value delivered by public statements, whether in a town hall or interviews. There are usually a lot of platitudes and aspirational statements, but rarely much substance. And on the rare occasions when they are earnest/honest (e.g. "this is an energy drink!"), it often backfires spectacularly. You also don't want to tip your hand to potential trade partners.
 
For example, I bet that the answers to the last 2 of your 3 questions would be "we believe in the guys we have here and that they can develop and be better with more training and experience under their belt, but we are also always looking to improve the roster with external moves, whether through the RB network (Royer/Rza) or other alternatives, both internationally and within the league (Sacha/Kaku/Parker)". Asked and answered, no real new information. :)

Just a minor note: Royer was not a RB player. He played for Ried and Austria Vienna.

Jared Stroud was picked 83rd last year, and could potentially be a first team player down the line. Stupid to pass up on free picks.

It's Moreno to the Fire.

Disappointing, really liked having the guy back.

He's had his chances -- and when the team needed a striker in midseason, they promoted White.
