If we were healthy this season I could see us having a heck of a shot again but we'll see how Kesler plays when he comes back.
2011 may have been our peak 'chance' at it, but it isn't always your best chance that wins it in the end.

Shareefruck's assessment is spot on, while our forwards have the potential to decline our defense and goaltending is solid for the long run. That will keep us in it, and as long as you have a horse in the race that timing and luck will come together at the right time to win it all.

So 2011 may have been our last chance as the clear cut favourites, but that team only actually ends up winning it what... like 1 in 4 maybe?
