Since about half of the teams in the league do not make the playoffs, I think the conditions should provide you the opportunity to AT LEAST break even with no playoffs. The playoff revenue should be gravy.
Disagree. 3 number 1 picks in the world plus guys like Schultz and Eberle should be a playoff gimme any year that they are beyond ELC. Anything less, as I stated, would be underwhelming.
If we're going to assume that these players turn out well and that they will cost us inordinately then its somewhat fair to assume the same players will be pushing the club to contender, or at the very least, playoff status.
