Playoffs are important.
I think you can only put yourself in the position to win the cup. There are so many variables and just plain luck involved that even the perfect team can run into a hot goaltender and poof. One cockeyed bounce, or rut in the ice. (The Buffalo Bills are the perfect example of the fickleness of the sports gods). The playoffs are also where you get your players, especially the kids, the experience of being in that pressure cooker situation. The playoffs are where your teams mettle is tested, from there determine the next step to actualizing the goal, fine tune so you have the chance to win the cup. Just playing in the first round by luck is not productive, in this I agree wholeheartedly with you. There's been too much satisfaction with that kind of performance from Kings management.
