There is way too much parity in the league to claim that any of those teams are definitively closer to winning a Cup than the Flyers.
The way I see it is that the NHL is split into tiers at this point:
Tier 1: Cup contenders-- Penguins, Flyers, Canucks, Kings, Blues, Rangers, Bruins, maybe a couple others
Tier 2: Playoff hopefuls
Tier 3: Cellar dwellers
Within those tiers, you cant definitively distinguish which teams are closer to the Cup than the others. So many teams are capable of winning each year.
That said, I dont think Doan will come to Philly
