It does not make sense to break what you are building for an early playoff exit.
It makes it more fun, to me... Those five LA games this year (1st round) was more exciting, to me, than probably 80 of the regular season games... There was really only a couple regular season games that I was really excited to watch... The rest, I PVR'd, and while I watched them, I got other "real world" stuff done first... Obviously, the cup run last year was even more fun... But I'd take a first round exit over no playoffs any time...
As a Canuck fan, we lived for years with less than great goaltending... IMHO, goaltending is the single most important ingredient to making the playoffs (and going far in the playoffs)... If you don't have that ingredient, a team is more likely to miss or disappoint...
