I'm sure people will say it is hard, but it hasn't stopped a lot of teams from finding those talents ala Dallas, Detroit, San Jose, etc.
but again, most teams dont have more than two of those type of guys at a time for any stretch.

If we had Hartnell and Radulov, both in their prime, along with the maturing Weber-Suter defense (maybe with Timonen retained as well if the firesale hadnt occurred) I think the '08 through '12 seasons would have been very different
