Might be hard to surround Gretzky, Lemieux, and Bossy with enough talent to win a cup in just 5 years, but if you have 15 years ...

Oh, and then there's the business side of things.

After the 5 years are up, your franchise is completely screwed.

But with Sid, Ovy, and Malkin, you're practically guaranteed extra revenue from marketing, selling out most games, and extra playoff revenue over the long 15 year span.

You have more time to build the rest of your team through the draft, learn through experience, and let them build chemistry.

Even with superstars like Gretzky, Lemieux, and Bossy, you're not guaranteed a Cup. These guys had a pretty good supporting cast when they won their cups, so I want some time to put the rest of my team in place.

And I don't even think Crosby, Ovy, and Malkin are much worse to begin with - if they played in Gretzky's era, they'd get 200+ point seasons too.
