Right now? Probably not. Imagine how much further away we'd be without any high end talent. Oh wait: you don't have to imagine it. That's been the reality for this franchise for most of the last 20-odd years. And now that we have an embarrassment of riches, people want to chuck some of it overboard to fit some abstract notion of what a team should look like? It's embarrassing.
Balance is always good. A team as soft as ours won't win anything soon. With the lack of grit on this team, a lot of other things (PP, PK, offensive skill, total commitment to the team) would have to come together really nicely to get close to winning the cup.
Obviously, one could say that about any team, but with EDM's soft lineup in particular. The playoff grind would be especially tough.
