Dear teachers,

Please read the sentence:

BlackBerry handsets will thrive for years to come.

May I say ".....years that will come"?

Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you in advance.

"for years to come" is pretty fixed. I would not suggest changing it.

It means "for the indefinite future."
