I don't know if anyone said that. It's not like they sold off all their young prospects and picks to build up their collection of talent. They took advantage of the ELCs/RFA deals of some of their good players and let it ride. Sure, they ended up having to deal some of those guys, but they traded them for reasonable returns (except maybe the Campbell deal).

Mortgaging the future would have been something akin to the rumored Pronger deal. Multiple blue chip prospects and high picks for a guy in his mid-30s and only 1 year left on his deal.
