The Panther and Tiger tanks were not available in strenght until long after Stalingrad was over.

The Tigers and Panthers were first used in great number at the Battle of Kursk. They could not break through there, so there is no reason to believe they could have been used offensively to capture Moscow.

German's best bet at this time was to use them as a counter force. Await a Russian assult, give ground then strike back when Russian troops are unprepared.

After Stalingrad, Germany could no longer win the war in the East, but it still could have played for a negotiated peace.
