I LOVE it when people passive aggressively complain about how things played out, as if without the Jagr era we'd automatically be a superior team now. Look at the Islanders, Blue Jackets, and Panthers as evidence of the contrary. Hell, even the Blues and Capitals, who are at best on par with us. The reality is that there is no sure way to become a top team. We are the only team in the Eastern Conference who has made it into the second round in each of the last two seasons, and while obviously the priority is to win (at least) one Cup over having multiple pretty good seasons, we're still in a pretty damn good spot right now. We can do the "what if" game for the 2005-2006 season and come up with 1 million different alternate universes. Realistically, though, the vast majority of them play out on par with or much worse than where we stand today in actuality.
