Unless if Quebec/Colorado pick up a big time goaltender, they don't win the cup. Lindros would probably put up similar point totals as he did in Philly, but as others have said, those early 90's Nordiques teams were horrible defensively and had poor goaltending, and without the Lindros trade in 1992, the Nords would probably have been a borderline playoff team (only because the Adams had an expansion Senators and very bad Whalers team in the division), and blown out in the first round.

If the team starts having some playoff success in 93-94, winning a couple of rounds, I think they stay in Quebec for a couple more seasons, however, I don't see them hanging on to their young, highly talented players when teams like the Rangers are willing to throw around $17 million for Sakic. Its hard to say though, prehaps having a huge star like Lindros on the team helps with a new arena being built? If not, they leave Quebec by 1999 at the very latest.
