That was the Thrashers biggest problem and now is the Jets biggest problem.

How do you overcome this?

By having a good GM, drafting well and being in a successfully environment. And I have no doubt that the Jets do have all this and will have overcome this "bubble-team"-status in at least 3 years
We'll see. There are very very few teams that manage to stay in this bubble area for more than a year or two then become real contenders. Can't think of a single one actually. And the jets/thrashers have been there for 3 years. This would be year 4 if we end up back there. Not the way to build a successful team IMO.
