As to the rest of your post, you're missing the forest because the trees are in the way.

Winning championships will never go 'hand in hand' with having a successful franchise.

Toronto is one of the most successful franchises in the NHL. How many championships have they won in the last 40 years?

Read the book, Bob.
There are certain markets where this is true. Toronto, Montreal etc

Dallas Cowboys and Redskins in the NFL are the same.

One thing ALL those teams do is try to win a championship and throw money in an attempt to do so. Why would they try to win and win now when they are so "successful"? Its because they can be even MORE successful if they win.
