Wow.
Frankly yes, If you can get some combination of good players under contract and draft picks, heck yes. With Suter, I would have guessed at about a 10% chance of a cup at the beginning of the playoffs...No better. I know we were a lot of people's dark horse, but with our offense I was not convinced. Without him, and without getting a significant return in the form of a top 6 forward plus picks, I think the teams chances at the cup in the next 4 years is less than 10% altogether (2.5% chance a year), but still might have been somewhere around 6% a year with good compensation. So yeah, to me it looks like we have reduced cup chances overall with our handling of the situation.
