They have been, and continue to be able to stockpile the depth pieces, 2nd/3rd/4th line, 2nd pairing players who many teams covet. If they can continue to do that they will be able to afford to make these types of deals.
Yep. To be honest, I didn't think it would work out, but they've done a surprisingly good job developing young role players. The team we have in place right now is very formidable on paper, and we don't have that huge drop-off in terms of talent waiting in the wings like many teams do when they've "cashed in their chips" so to speak.
This team has managed to undo some major gaffs in it's recent history with some shrewd FA signings, quality drafting, and miracle trades. Hope it stays this way. Knock on wood.
