I'm pretty sure that what he meant was that in order for The Nordiques/Avalanche to get those 2 Stanley Cups, they traded away all three of their former 1st overall picks. Meaning that there is no guarantee that Hall, RNH, Yakupov or Eberle wouldn't be moved to complete the team transformation from young upstarts to actual contenders.

Am I the only who got what he meant when he stated that Sundin, Nolan and Lindros were all pawns the Franchise used to turn into the Stanley Cup Winners it became?

*I see that Struckbyaparkedcar also got what the other poster meant.
