There aren't many, if any, teams that have won the Cup by solely drafting all of their players.

A team like NY or Boston or Chicago has the resources to turn a team around quickly by utilizing their scouting departments to draft the right players and sign the right players in UFA. That is what I mean.

Draft a good young player but also sign the right UFA's or make the right trades for players who will fit.
