Cap space is a powerful tool, trades (and UFA signings) are the two ways to exploit it. Neither should be discounted.
Trades are more than legitimate - they are essential. In my view no team can win the SC without trading well and signing FA.

Both Detroit and Chicago have significant potions of their rosters as a result of trades and signings. San Jose is largely build on trades and FA signings.

No top team can rely purely on the draft. Not with FA at 27 and probably dropping in future.

You have to draft, trade and sign good players. You have to do all three well in order to win.
