They have been at the top of the division for so long that all of the other teams have to try to succeed against them. I don't know why one of the other teams hasn't gone out and tried to build a team like Anaheim (not as easy as it looks?) but it won't be us as we can't afford that roster. Would it work? Could you spend the time developing young talent with that kind of size without firing coach and gm for not winning? Could you even bring in enough talent through the draft to even matter?
It would take years to build an "anahiem" via the draft. With unlimited funds a team could do it thru free agency in a shorter time frame but to have any continuity you'd need long term deals or a mix of younger RFAs withthe UFAs.
