are we becoming a contender if not already one?

I think this team is a contender....when healthy.
My view of Boston's year is they had a goalie steal 2-3 full series' (MTL, TBL and VAN), no Thomas and his over .930 save % = no cup. Bottom line. They also took advantage of evry bounce, and that is exactly what it takes to win. We could do the same.
That said, we did lack the depth needed to compete deep into the playoffs. If Patches returns to the form he had last season, and the youth takes a step forward...not to mention if Gomez were to have at least a half decent year (40-50 pts and a +/- in the positive side) for his salary, we would be just fine.
Granted, this team needs some help in the form of another Power Forward, and maybe a Pouliot that can play consistently.
But all in all the main pieces are there, some complementary pieces NEED to be added to be called a true Cup contender.
