We have almost nothing; objectively, we're one of the worst teams in the league, year in and year out. Without a bit of luck, I don't see us competing for a long, long time.
I still think we're one legitimate goaltender away from being respectable. Think Curtis Joseph when signed here for that 98-1999 season. And from there, attracting talent to bolster the rest of our lineup becomes infinitely easier. Now i'm not suggesting Luongo is that guy, I think that ship has sailed long ago.. but when the best our goalies can hope to achieve is a .900 save percentage, you're not going anywhere.
