LA, St. Louis, Nashville and Chicago are all locks to make the playoffs for the next number of years given the immense depth of young top end talent they have

Vancouver is the only team in the West who is truly in its prime, so give them another 2-4 years as well

Edmonton and Minny are going to be top 4 teams in the West within the next 2-3 years each

Colorado is on its way up as well

Calgary and SJ are on the downside

Phoneix is still an engima

Columbus is 5 years away form being any real threat

Holland would be a fool if he didnt see the writing on the wall, the West is very competitive and will be even more so over the next couple of years
It upsets fans because like Bob said (paraphrasing), why the hell is he putting his prospects in the cellar if he doesnt think this team is good enough? He is putting together a team he knows cant contend. You have nothing to lose if your current team isnt good enough by playing prospects.

I would not be surprised if Holland is simply just trying to preserve the playoff streak so he can add to his legacy.
