To take that Cup run and extrapolate it into a "lets try that again!" claim is delusional. If we'd run into either the Caps or Pittsburgh, we would have been toast most likely. When we did run into a legit team, we did get toasted.
I am in your camp on this specific issue. I have also attempted to show that just making the playoffs does not cut it, making the SCF's after qualifying as a #7 was an aberration. Stanley Cup winners are made during the season.
