I'm with Caseman. It's not about packing it in since the Stars aren't the odds-on favourite to win the Cup, or at this point even make the postseason. It's about BELIEVING they've got a shot at the playoffs, and then afterwards who knows?

You won't see me jumping around the main board shouting "I told you so!" if this team accomplishes the improbable and wins the Cup this year, but I'll feel a hell of a lot better knowing they at least made the playoffs when so many, including many of their own fans, were so sure they wouldn't make it.

Even if this team makes the playoffs as the 8th seed, by a tiebreaker, and then gets swept, I'll be much happier than if they didn't even make it in. Because they're definitely not bad enough to land a top 5 draft pick, and after that there's really no difference between a bottom-rung playoff team, and the best team to not make it in.
