That can happen, occasionally you hit a sweet spot of removing veterans and a good cohort of new blood. Montreal had it in 10-11 when they incorperated 6 AHLers into the lineup full time (Subban, Pacioretty, Eller, Desharnais, Weber and White).

The two per year is what you average long-term rather than what must be done in any particular year.
