It seems a lot of people get lost in translation, forgetting that the entire reason why this organization is in place is to win. People seem to get caught up in the "asset management" side of things.
We're 25th in the league in shots per game, 26th in the league in shots allowed (4th worst), we have a young team that's basically never seen the post season, all on top of the usual atypical ingredients of a condender in the lack of #1C, #1D, #1G (although Reimer is playing fairly well).

So yes, we don't KNOW that we'll perform poorly in the postseason, but it sure as hell is safe to say where the odds are. Just read the writing on the wall.
