You're reaching. Tootoo isn't going to lose a playoff series on his own.

It's pretty simple: Edmonton just isn't good enough at even strength. With the PP they had, and a PK that had them in the top half of the league, they were still one of the worst teams in the league. Until Edmonton can win games at even strength, they aren't going to win a playoff series. If they can't do it during the regular season, what hope do they have in the playoffs when games get tougher, more defense-oriented, and there are fewer penalties?

Edmonton has a good future, but they aren't there yet, and the team they have just isn't built for playoff hockey. It's more the anti-playoff team right now.
