Toronto is going to make money every year no matter how bad of a team they ice. They are one of the highest revenue generators already and have missed the playoffs 8 straight seasons. Making an argument based on additional revenue would suggest that a small market team with a lousy record could use an elite prospect far more than Toronto.

Also, you would hope that at least a small improvement should happen over last season now that some of the prospects are coming up through the ranks.
