You need a lot to go right to win a cup, even with a stacked team.

We see dozens of deadline aquisitions each year, almost everyone massive overpays. When is the last one that actually got a team a cup? Arguably the Kings trades for the ex-Flyers, but the ones that work out are very rare. It is a poor way to obtain talent, by far the least effective way. Especially if you are trying to fix a long hole for the long term.
