All depends on what you goals are, you budget, and what you have to start with. Realistically in a given year, there only about 5-10 people who have a legitimate shot at winning the TDF. If you don't have one of those guys, you have to focus your efforts elsewhere, i.e. KOM, points jersey, stage wins etc.
So you then build your team around your stregths, and concentate on the goals that are acheivable.
When Discovery had Amstrong in his prime, they didn't bring sprinters and leadout men.
Conversely you don't see a lot of GC contenders with Boonen.
You could fall off a cliff and die.
You could get lost and die.
You could hit a tree and die.
OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.
