The only guy we currently have who is already a star player and who has shown he is capable of raising his game to another level in the playoffs is Subban.

Pacioretty, Gallagher, Galchenyuk and Eller have the potential to be key players in the playoffs going forward.

Plekanec and Markov will be supporting players going forward. They shouldn't be expected to carry the team and be cornerstones.

Gorges will get mentionned here but if we rely on him to have a key role on the team it won't be pretty.

I am not mentioning Price because goalies are always key in the playoffs whether it's negatively or positively and Price could go one way or another so..

EDIT:

In short, if Galchenyuk, Eller, Pacioretty and Gallagher become the players they are supposed to and find ways to produce in the playoffs, then we'll be sitting pretty up front. It will only be a matter of surrounding these guys with some other decent players, appropriate UFA rentals, etc.

On D, we really need a McDo type. Or maybe a guy who is a bit more rough like Orpik. Tinordi will eventually fill a big hole if he develops more of a mean streak.
