And yes, Phoenix was seeded higher.

Anaheim was 4 seed vs our 5.

Minor disappointment at most in the playoffs. Major overachievement during the regular season as a whole.
You can sugarcoat it all you want, but the bottom line is we've had little playoff success with Poile and Trotz running the show. Doesn't seem to make a difference if we're the favorite or not (1 out of 4 when we're the favorite, 1 out of 5 when we're not the favorite). Trotz's overachievement powers can't be be replicated in the playoffs, which is a problem.

Back to Legwand, I think shopping him is the right move. It may look like a playoff spot is in reach, but it's further away than it looks. If we're not in a playoff spot on the trade deadline, or within a point or two, we should sell.
