Yup. We really ought to win one round, but expecting more than that is probably folly. Realistically we're probably a "second-tier" team this year, behind the likes of the Penguins, Blackhawks, Bruins, and Kings. We're sitting in that second tier with the Ducks, the Canucks, and maybe the Capitals. Teams that, if the chips fall just right, can get to the third round or deeper, but probably shouldn't.

Yes, I put the Kings ahead of the Ducks, partly due to defending-champion status, and partly because their shot numbers are just so convincingly in their favor. They've got the kind of numbers they had last year going into the playoffs, and look what happened then.
