For the first time in years, we actually have franchise players. Price, Subban. Pacioretty and Eller will IMO, be stars. Plekanec, Cammalleri and Gionta have several good years left.
If Gauthier continues to build around this core, which he's done a great job of IMO, we can definitely contend within the next few years. Really though, anyone who makes the playoffs is a 'contender'.
Although we lost to Boston in round 1, IMO we actually played better these past playoffs than the year before when we made the semis. Sometimes the difference is just a bounce here and there.
