Getting to the playoffs is good, but over half the teams in the NHL make it. Still, making the playoffs 6 of 7 years is an accomplishment, especially with the change in ownership.
If you want to be 'competitive' but unlikely 'great', Poile is your guy. He holds the NHL record for 1st round exits from the research I've done. Someone can correct me if they find someone else...
His best 2 signings were Trotz and Korn.
