I don't think Jagr is the answer. Watch him and Pronger clash.
For the record, two years ago we made the playoffs on the last day of the season and did not have to play the two best teams in the conference (Washington and Pittsburgh). So, while we nearly won the Cup last year, the team was not dominant. This year, we got destroyed by the Bruins. So, I don't know how close in reality we were to being a true Cup challenger.

I don't think we are any further away from being a Cup contender, but until we see how chemistry works out, I think we are still behind at least a healthy Pittsburgh and the Bruins (and perhaps Buffalo and Washington as well). Right now I'd put us in the 3rd to 7th spot in the conference.
