We also can't and won't keep up this level of point production. Playing way in over our heads.

But like I said, we'll win one playoff series as we have for the past decade and a half, and manage to squeeze out two wins in the second round.
It's easier to get one "messiah center" than it is to get center depth, which was ubiquitous in the post-lockout Cup-winning rosters.

One center will not win you the Cup, not even an elite one. A team with a quality center at least three lines will. The bottom liner centers need not be elite scorers, but they need to contribute in the non-scoring aspects of the game.

We can make it to the Conference Finals, but we are too incomplete on defense, the a wing, and on faceoffs to even make it to the Cup, let alone win it.
