The cynic in me says we will sign no reputable free agent forwards, and we will be in this position again next June, but we might not be. We might be one of those teams on the fringe of the playoffs who doesn't quite make it, and we end up with a mid-round draft pick again. If it takes us 15 years to get back to this position, that's probably 15 Stanley Cups that will pass us by.
So lets say we pass on Jones, get a late 1st and get Monahan. We would win the cup?
