I am not against using any of those unlikely options if the opportunity manifests itself.
You know how the Bruins were able to sign Zdeno Chara and Marc Savard? By selling off Joe Thornton, the same way fans on this board are against selling veterans. Cap space is one of the prime reasons for selling off veterans.
Good trades, good UFA signings, good drafting, and a little luck so in other words having a good GM. By the way you also need to be good at all those things even if you rebuild.
