With higher talent level SHOULD come higher expectations.
Just making the playoffs is a huge leap forwards. Like I stated in the underdogs thread, it's hard to go from junk to great in one season.

Top-5 in the West last year based on points was Vancouver, St. Louis, Nashville, Detroit, and Chicago. We were a long ways below that level of competition last year. Top-5 is a crazy high jump. It would be a greater jump than 2005-06 to 2006-07. Possible? Yes. Likely? Hmm. . . don't set your expectations too high either.
