Those teams all have 2-4 legit first line players, and we have 0. There is a chance Forsberg becomes one, though not a huge one, and Jarnkrok looks unlike to be a legit top liner too. We have great D and G, true, but so do those teams, and they have world class offense to put with it.

It'd take a minor miracle for us to be a legit cup threat in 2-3 years, but if we sell Weber and Rinne this/next off-season and get great young pieces, we could be there in 4-5. Agree to disagree.
no, we won't be in a position to go to the finals year after year, but the truth is we probably never will be. But in 2-3 years we should have a team that will have a chance to beat those teams, and anything can happen in a 7 game series. Tampa and Carolina both won their Cups without dynasty level talent, Edmonton made the finals as an 8 seed…

there is no guarantee that a rebuild gets us anything close to what we even have now… and unless we replace Rinne with another great goalie, all those great young pieces will be for naught
