This team has accomplished a whole boatload of mediocrity. They made the playoffs a bunch of times when Lundqvist dragged in awful teams that had no business being there. One of their series wins was against what might be one of the worst teams to ever qualify for the playoffs in tha Atlanta team.

One real contender in 8 years, and major changes to the roster every 2-3 years.

Sustained Success? That's a joke. The only thing that has been sustained is mediocrity. Just because this team finally figured out how to develop good complimentary players doesn't mean that we should all line the Canyon of Heroes and jump for joy. That's not nearly enough, and so far, that's about the only thing they've gotten right.
See my post in the other thread.
