Homegrown or not, they had Niedermayer and Pronger, both second overall selections. One they acquired because they had his brother and he wanted to help his brother win the Cup. The other was acquired for two former top-10 overall picks in Smid and Lupul, as well as 2 firsts and a 2nd. Without having bluechippers to deal, they wouldn't have gotten Pronger.
