If you've paid any attention to me, you'll note I don't believe there's much of anything differentiating regular season and playoff (just an upped quality of competition). That being said, however, the switch argument concerns the playoffs and we aren't there yet... so to use their play over the last few months as some argument against what those folks are saying isn't really a valid line of attack.

I do think the focus level will go up a bit with the playoffs, and we do see that with some regularity. Whether that will solve all the teams problems is another matter. The playoffs are far more about momentum, matchups, and luck than anything else.
