The way I see it, you shouldn't be thinking about it as a 9 year drought, because you've only been in the playoffs 2004, 2006 and 2007. 3 years and 3 first round exits isn't that unusual for a young team lacking playoff experience. Plus the team should be generating a good amount of fanfare with its powerhouse regular seasons anyway. And you're not like the Lightning at all. They were terrible for a long, long time. Your team is different. Your point totals have improved by leaps and bounds every season over the past five years and with the exception of one season, your team has gotten better every year. The Preds are in great shape on the ice.
