You missed my point.
Making the playoffs last season and scaring another team was an attainable goal, but was just the first step in a series of what should be attainable goals. At some point, this isn't going to be a young team anymore and the expectations are going to be much higher - either that or this will to continue to be a young team and the current core will have moved on.
What is that point? While it's true that this team has more potential than some of the earlier teams, they don't hang banners and schedule parades for potential. At some point, they MUST produce on the ice.
If the Kings are in the exact same place 3 seasons from now, will you still be willing to stay the course with DL at the helm? What about 5 seasons?
