And what I see is consistent inability to get over the "hump" and be considered an elite team that can truely contend for a Cup.
The Edmonton game was terrible. The Pittsburgh game wasn't good either, and yes, although they are red hot right now, we should've played better. But, it happens over the course of the season. St. Louis doesn't have many of them because they're the best team in the West. Detroit is 5-9-1 in their last 15 games so they aren't finding ways to win too often despite those injuries.

As far as the "not getting over the hump" thing, I get that, but before 2010 is different in my mind than all that stuff before it when we had the ownership issues and whatnot. Since missing the playoffs in 08-09, we've improved each season, and we have no idea if we're over the hump or not right now because it's still March, and the playoffs are still two weeks away.
