Truth is much of what you said is a valid concern. But it's about setting expectations. Nobody expected this team to compete for a cup this year, the only reason it's even a thought right now is because we're in 1st.

We've overachieved this year considering how pathetic our offense is. I'd be disappointed if we don't at least make the semi-finals. Making the Finals and losing I would still be happy with this team.

Next season, most likely adding Kreider. And I can see us making a run at another proven goal scorer like Nash or Parise.

Granted if our 3rd line woke up in the playoffs and can pot a few timely goals like DET and Pitts's 3rd lines always seem to do in the playoffs then you really never know what can happen this season with Hank in net.

The playoffs have never really been about the best team winning the cup. It's about a team being hot at the right time. It's the reason why so few President Trophy winners have ever won the cup.
