There are just so many beastly teams in the West right now... unless they somehow manage to kill eachother getting to the finals...
Anyway, it's not really contention to say that maybe by "some string of miracles" our team might get a Cup shot. Any team can say that once they make the playoffs. That's not real contention. But being a team that is at least reasonably confident of making the playoffs at all is a first step, and maybe that constitutes opening the window, at least? A tiny crack?
I want to see real improvements to the roster next season, though, not the kind of flailing that last summer produced, before I really feel like the team has taken a step.
As long as we don't face one of SJ, STL or LA in the finals we should be good
