Yeah agreed

We have been 'playoff' team due to amazing defense and goaltending, we have not truly been Stanley cup contenders, due to lack of scoring.

That's why it's so exciting to finally have rinne and weber locked up, josi, Ellis, and Klein in the fold. And then we have forsberg and most likely barkov coming in to help Wilson and beck, things could get exciting in next few years!!
