To me, this demonstrates is the need to have a constant influx of young talent that can produce at levels that exceed their cap hits. A young player can be under team control into their mid/late twenties and be paid well below market value for much of or possibly that entire period.

The Flyers don't have a #1 dman because haven't made the effort to draft & develop one. Ditto for goaltender. They've tried to resort overpaying on the free agent market to make up for that. Now they may very well have to trade futures to acquire one, but that only furthers the cycle of trading off inexpensive youth for expensive veterans.
