Assuming the OP is looking at those guys as pieces of the team going forward and not rentals, then I have to disagree with your statement. You can't just sit on your hands and wait to become a contending team, you have to add the complimentary pieces that your team hasn't been able to obtain through the draft at some point.
Also, it would do no harm to the future if 'the future' wasn't exchanged in part of the trade. I know a poster above mentioned Gagner, but that's obviously unrealistic just based on the impending UFA status of both Clowe and Murray alone.
