But, making the playoffs is better for the organization if it is coming through the rapid development of the "young core" Tortorella has been talking about. If this team makes the playoffs on the backs of Gaborik and Lundqvist, it's just business as usual. It is better for the long-term growth of the organization that we are seeing the young core already assuming such an important part of the success of the team.
