Actualy it's only 129 games but not really a big deal, my point was I could pick 2 seasons from the Torts era that is in direct conflict with the OP's point.

09-10 Missed the playoffs...SO loss in Philly Game 82
10-11 Out in Round 1

Aside from last seasons #1 seed the team has mostly finished as a bottom seed when making the playoffs.

I'm not knocking Hank, and I certainly agree with the thread you included above, consistently turning over the roster creates no sense of cohesion or continuity.

My point which I think I included in another response about the last 2 seasons was, maybe 11-12 was the outlier season, the "Perfect Storm" if you will, and that this season the team has regressed to their norm...hard to tell based on a 48 game season, so I guess we'll need to see what next year brings.
