For one thing, you`d lose competitiveness in the short-term and maybe even long-term depending how long it takes for prospects to develop. Second, I doubt owners would buy into the idea of potentially losing over an extending period of time and potentially losing money.
Unfortunately, is a market society, what is to be lost be shipping away players is potential dollars. That is why every year we see teams wanting to be competitive no matter what rather than looking to sell players for futures. As an owner, you want to minimize uncertainty, dealing vets doing reasonably well for uncertainty in the future wont go over well with them.
