Is there any way we win the Stanley Cup during Gomez , Gionta & Cammalleri's era?

Probably a very good 3rd line center, who's able to play 2nd line when needed. I think he'll become a true defensive specialist, without the offensive skills to produce regularly. 30 to 40 pts per year.
- Pouliot ?
I don't see him in Montreal in 3 years. He's definitely not JM's kind of player.
- Price ?
One of the top 10 goaler in the NHL every year.
- Subban ?
One of the best offensive defenseman in the NHL, but with a few defensive problems. Around 50 pts a year.
- Weber ?
Not sure about him... Maybe a #5 or 6 who can play on the PP.
- Pyatt ?
We won't remember his name in 3 years.
- Leblanc ?
He's exactly the kind of player that is loved by JM and PG. Can play well both offensively and defensively and gives a full effort on every shift. I'll say a good 2nd line center with a 60-70 pts ceiling.
- Gorges ? (will be below 30)
Just like today. A very effective #4-5 defenseman.
- other prospects ?
In 3 years, I expect Ryan White to be our main agitator on the 4th line. Pacioretty should be a good 2nd liner, scoring 40-50 pts per year. Tinordi could play a few games on the 3rd pairing. Palushaj could earn a spot on the 3rd line. Bournival will be traveling between Hamilton and Montreal. And I think David Desharnais will produce a lot of points for another NHL team, because he's clearly not seen as an NHL player by the Habs organization.
The bolded parts are my predictions.
In conclusion, in 3 years, I think that we'll still rely massively on Gomez, Plekanec, Cammalleri and Gionta for our offensive production, and on whoever we can get with a trade or on the free agent market.
