Well, keep them for the duration of their careers if they win by the time they are UFAs when they have the choice where to play. At that time, they get to choose to play with the young teams that did develop a competitive team. Hopefully by that you are one of them, flush with playoff money to continue paying for them.

Theres no reason to keep a declining player at a high salary, if he isnt going to be part of the young core that you eventually will have to win with. And that seems fair to me.
