Best example probably when Seattle Metropolitans bought over a whole core of five players Hap Holmes, Frank Foyston, Cully Wilson, Jack Walker and Ed Carpenter from Toronto Blueshirts for the 191516 season and won the cup in 1917. Four of those players [Holmes, Foyston, Wilson, Walker] had already won the cup in 1914 with the Blueshirts and three of them [Holmes, Foyston, Walker] would win again with Victoria Cougars in 1925.
