I'm not going to make rash judgements based off of a small sample of games played with a long layoff and short training camp.
If you're going to use last year's playoffs as a gauge as to the "young core's" impact, then you have to include the second round vs the Devils, to whom they were essentially swept after game 2. None of the "young core" that you speak of played particularly well in that round.

An organization cannot be considered one of the best when their last championship was 38 years ago.
