Dumping Gomez and Kaberle would mean there would be money to do it. If the organization had credible management (Which it desperately needs right now) I think it's possible with the cash to splash. There needs to be a new, credible, experienced (at least at the assistant level with an elite team) GM to sell it though.

I was shocked when the team managed to sign Cole last summer. He's not premier like a Suter or a Chara but I thought he was the 3rd-best free agent available last summer and didn't have the Habs coming close to signing him.

The farm's looking good on the back-end, there should be an elite prospect coming in the draft, and there's a number of young players progressing with the big team already (Pacioretty and Subban are pretty damn special). Contention isn't going to happen with a fool at the helm or behind the bench but if the right moves are made there I don't think it's too far off.
