Do you believe our "window" to win the Cup is still open?

I just don't see it anymore. Teams like the Rangers and Kings have us beaten in depth, teams like Pittsburgh and even Edmonton (pretty soon) will have us beaten in star power. We're no longer the best at anything anymore, let alone being the best at everything (like we were in 2011.) Our window is still open but it's pretty narrow now. A lot will have to go right in order for us to even have a sniff this year, like how LA had the easiest run of all time as an 8th seed.
If we can't win the cup, I honestly hope we just blow it up and go for a quick reload. Get some very much-needed youth and smart signings in here like Philly did and come back stronger than ever.
Because I really hate the makeup of our forward group, a part of me kinda wants us to miss the playoffs this year. If we can land a top 5 pick, as well as a top 10 pick next year and possibly McDavid the year after, we will be set up very nicely going forward.
Oilers rebuild it, shall we? Yes we can!
