Like I said, the other teams you mentioned have all either won Cups in that span or are known as chokers who don't end up where they're expected to be (Washington and San Jose). Guess which category we fall under. It's not the Cup winners one.
I'm sure most of us would give up consistent mediocrity for a Cup or even an elite level season.
So you would be fine being Carolina and you must think Jim Rutherford is a great GM. After all he has a cup and made a 2nd long playoff run 4 years ago. That's the only time they have been in the playoffs in the last 7 years though. But according to your post, that is your ideal team.
