Would the 5+ years in the basement be worth it for a greater chance at winning the cup?
Depends. Crosby? Sure. Chara? No, he's too old.

I think we can continue to be competitive by signing UFAs and drafting on pure talent in the later rounds to help bolster the team on the occassional chance they work out.
