It's not unusual to see the 8th place team beat the best team in the conferance. We did it a few times. Now sure, we haven't won the cup, but beating the best team means we can beat anyone.

Our cup run last season was pretty much that. We beat Washington and Pittsburgh, two top team. I don't think we would have beaten Chicago, but we would have had a chance if we could have beaten Philly.

And some teams are raising their game up in the playoffs. We are one of those team. So yeah, if you can make the playoffs, you have a chance to win the cup. Therefore, if you have a chance to make the playoffs, and you are not in a full rebuilding mode, you have to go for it.
