The most recent five year stretch features more competitive teams as the previous had establishing expansion teams...
In the years we made the playoffs, we were only a contender once and we traded away a veteran goaltender for a 2nd round pick, put all the pressure on a 21 year old rookie, and didn't acquire any other warm bodies for the stretch run.

Do we want to win the cup or do we just want to make the playoffs and see what happens? I heard Gainey's post-game talk yesterday and he spoke about our objective this year was to "make the playoffs. ?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Seriously?
