We have been favored to win a playoff series twice. Once vs SJ and once vs DET (2012). Both 4v5 seeds.

All that talent you speak of... JP Dumont- not qualified by Buffalo for 2 million. Arnott-- Dallas didn't offer him a contract. Sullivan-- was wavier wire material at one point in his career, subsequently traded for 2nds. Walker-- only got a job because of expansion.

We have never had the talent that true contenders have. Even in the "glory years" above... Trotz was coaching another team's leftovers into a pretty damn good team.
