We're adding two guys in their prime and the other guys will be hitting it sooner then Yakupov.
I don't think adding those guys moves us any closer to the playoffs or the Cup right now when you factor in what we're losing.

The Nordiques traded 3 of their 1st overalls and won a cup so I don't think it's a bad strategy to follow
Of all the assets they got from all those trades, only one was around when they actually won the Cup (Forsberg). The rest got traded for other parts.
