If they don't start making the playoffs, it's going to be harder to:
a) Retain the services of players. Some might even demand out (even younger 'key' guys), and;
b) Sign key UFAs to put us over the 'top.'

So it's important this team starts making the playoffs for many reasons.
And this isn't a post disagreeing with you--I'm just adding to what you said, basically.
