First, this Oilers comparison is weak because this method of rebuild has always been in used in sports, regardless of the sport.

But let's take the Oilers for example. They've gathered the following (likely) elite talents during the course of their rebuild: Hall, Eberle, Yakupov, RNH, Schultz. Such level of talents that are required to win a cup.

If the Flames were to continue playing these "secondary players" and justify the Canes 06 Cup as the model for a successful franchise, they would have a harder to time gathering the elite talents required to win it all. Its harder gethering elite level guys via trades and free agency when you're in the midst of a rebuild.
