They happened to play the two greatest teams of all time in the 80's, not much you can do about that. I'd understand all the complaining if this team was missing the playoffs year in and year out but they're not. We have been spoiled with the fact that we have a contending team almost every year. It is just really hard to win a Stanley Cup.
Sider is impatient and has a "must win now" mentality. Rather than be patient, let players develope and build from within he pressures Holmgren to fix the problems now at any expense. Just look at our goalie situation. What we SHOULD have done was to get a vet like Vokoun to mentor Bob for a few years and let Bob develope into a franchise goalie but NOOOO, Snide was too impatient and just HAD to have his franchise goalie now and look where that got us.
