Cause that is what your looking at if you want to pick #1 overall. On top of that, its not like you can do that every year. You got to be very creative to pull it off, and right opportunity has to come.

Red Wings have proven you don't need #1 draft picks to contend. New Jersey was competitive forever without #1 draft picks.

Not to mention, you run the risk of some of those #1 draft picks busting.
He's not saying we should do it now.

The Rangers were an awful team before Jagr and could've gotten a franchise first line forward.

Sting is very outspoken in his feeling that getting Jagr set the franchise back years. I don't necessarily agree with it, but I do agree pre-Jagr we should've been going for top picks instead of doing what we actually did.
