5 of the top 6 playoff scorers on the Bears' '05-'06 championship team were Caps' prospects or acquisitions. And there were a decent amount of other Caps' prospects on that team.

5 of the top 7 playoff scorers on the Bears' '08-'09 championship team were Caps' prospects or acquisitions. And there were a decent amount of other Caps' prospects on that team.

6 of the top 10 playoff scorers on the Bears' '09-'10 championship team were Caps' prospects or acquisitions. And there were a decent amount of other Caps' prospects on that team.

I'll give you the last couple years have been a decent amount leaner but the Bears don't come close to winning any of those Calder Cups without such significant contributions from Caps' prospects and signings.
