I realize that the budgetary strengths of the club are not the same, but regardless, it hasn't even brought them any more success, much less in fact.
you have to put this success thing into perspective...
they've been in the league for only about 12 years
they've been on a tight budget for a long while
they had to developp a new market
but, they're on the rise... they finally won a PO round last season, only missed the PO once in last 7 years, they develop their own players (Erat, Legwand, Suter, Weber, Rinne now Blum, Josi, Hornqvist, Spaling), they'll probably get their 2nd 100 pts season in last 3 years...
and when it comes to stability (roster, coaching staff AND management), they're the closest thing to the Red Wings...
