The last couple years it's looked like the Hawks have run out of steam by the time they hit the playoffs. They were able to get over the hump a couple years ago but now it's a lot harder.

I'd still take their situation...won a Cup and kept the star players. You never know what happens when you get in.
Exactly. Once they lost the depth, it became two years of barely sneaking into the playoffs as an 8th seed and getting knocked out in the round one as a 6th seed.
