You... do realize that's not very realistic under any circumstances, right? Only two teams will have a shot at them. And even then by putting all of your eggs in one basket like that you're only a concussion/stunted development path/whatever away from being back to square one. Unlikely, maybe, but nothing is a surefire way to develop a championship contender.
And I know that hfboards tends to overrate the value of picking superstars in the draft, but that's not the only way to win a cup.
