I can't honestly say we're a Cup contender in 2 yrs just adding Bobby Ryan.

The big difference between Ryan & the situation last yr with Jeff Carter is he is signed for the next 10 yrs. If you said Bobby Ryan was signed for 7+ yrs, I would definitely take that deal in a heartbeat.
Honestly, I think it's a possibility.
I think we would have a very good chance to make the playoffs. And once you make the playoffs, it mostly becomes a crapshoot. Did anyone really think the Kings were Stanley Cup contenders last year?
