It's not that hard to make the playoffs in the NHL. Saying we're usually in it doesn't do anything for me as an argument.
Only one team has made the playoffs more than the NYR since the lockout. That should do something for you. Nearly 50% of teams in the league DON'T make the playoffs every year. It is "hard" in a parity/cap league.
