But as bad as we look now, we have a lot more going for us than many teams do- we are close to having one of the best defense/goaltending combos in the entire league- we won't have to have a high-powered, top 5 offense to be a contender.
That combo didn't take us to a contender with Weber/Suter/Pekka.

You have to go back to 2003 to find a team who really didn't have a great offense who won the Stanley Cup-- Devils (still good though with Elias, Gomez, Sykora, Newiendekye, etc). But that was in the clutch and grab era. Doubt that team would've won it in today's NHL.
