I can't think of a team that's won the cup that hasn't aquired key talented outside players to help get them there. We'll see come draft day and beyond.
Well, Lombardi has said that his goal is to build a perennial Cup contender. I am assuming that Lombardi is not covering for (or being lied to by) AEG. Given that, if the Kings make the playoffs it validates them as a team no longer in just rebuild mode. Once it gets to that point, the only issues with attracting quality outside help will be a matter of having the assets and resources to go get it (hence my other conditions for calling an end to the rebuild).
