When you're a team like Pittsburgh, with a healthy Crosby, who might be playing the best hockey of his career, you do what you gotta do. The Pens have won only 1 Cup with Crosby and Malkin. Just shows that for whatever reason, winning can be elusive.
And they won only 2 with Mario, Jagr, Francis, etc. And even those were back to back. You can have a great team year in and year out and not win very often. Even the two teams who many say have had great sustained success for about the last 20 years, Detroit and New Jersey, have (IIRC) four and three cups respectively over that span.

So while on one hand it can advocate to just go full out when you are in Pittsburgh's shoes, it can also advocate to just keep building and hold off on any more large trades from time to time to keep the long-term success going.
