It's not just the NHL potential, it's how good they are now. Aren't you the guy whow was arguing for Ellis over Pietrangelo in the 2010 final? Maybe not. It's also about their age. The Blades are an older team now than the Spits will be - some of their drafted players are already overagers. Will the Spits have drafted overagers? It's not looking that way.
At the end of the day, it comes down to these facts: The Blades achieved more with the pieces they had during their bid year than the Spitfires, AND they had more assets to trade in the offseason/the following season to make themselves better. The Spitfires look like they're going to finish out of the playoffs (maybe in the bottom three) and they have limited picks/young players to improve themselves.
