Salary cap = Parity

Sure, the B's are a solid team, but really, they're NOT that much better than us (and the question if Max Pac would have made THE difference is still valid, particularly since we lost in OT, game 7).
Honestly, I don't think we are that far away to winning the cup because I think once you're in the playoffs, anything can happen. A good goalie can bring you very far in the playoffs almost by himself. No team is guaranteed of winning the cup no matter how good it looks on paper. The game is on the ice.

With MaxPac and another player to help our top 6/9, we could be battling for the cup as soon as next season.
