I think something that's being lost in the tank for the championship vs. competitive over long periods of time discussion is that the best team doesn't always win. Noone in the world can convince me that the Kings were the best team last year, or that Carolina was the best the year they won.

It most often is won by the hottest good team. The Sharks just haven't been hot at the right time, their goalies have never been on one of their hot streaks in the playoffs, and they haven't always been the best team. Stanley Cups are going to be won by one of the top 5 teams nearly every year, and the Sharks have been there very often in the last 10 years. Sometimes it just comes down to the fact that there are 30 teams, and 29 have to lose.
