They could have won a Cup early on like 1994 or so. Sakic was pretty good at that time and Lindros was a year away from a Hart Trophy. Throw in Nolan, Sundin (or whatever you get from him in a trade) and Kamensky and you've got a legitimate contender. Maybe they get a defenseman with a trade. Either way, winning the Cup brings in a lot more money than you would normally get.
