I want us to make the playoffs for a few reasons. One, you can't win the Stanley Cup without making the playoffs. Do I think we'll do that, no. In fact, I think we'll lose in the first round.

But from the other stand point, the playoffs are a huge moneymaker for our owners and we need our local owners to make as much money as possible, especially with how tough next season is likely going to be for attendance.

Anyone that calls themselves a fan of this team realizes our financial situation. For that reason alone, they should be hoping for playoffs. At this point, I don't care if it pads Poile's first round exit stats. I care more about the owners viability. Will it be a financial disaster if we don't make the playoffs, no, but it will help against future loses.

There is also a very slight difference in our draft pick if we make the playoffs and if we barely miss it. People who try to use the draft pick argument should have wanted us to tank a long time ago.
