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

They picked up JVR in the draft, had a great pick in Claude Giroux waiting in the wings and made some very shrewd signings (Hartnell, Timonen and Briere) that completely turned them back into contenders.
Except I don't see anyone waiting in the wings that has top line talent, nor does this team ever go out and make interesting top line signings either. I think Messier was the last time we signed a forward who played on our top line...
Fire Benning, Fire Desjardins, Fire Linden, and hopefully Aquilini sells the team! #TimeForARegimeChange
