Well, as a huge Avalanche fan, I'm used to playoffs, and going pretty deep into them. But now that the team has fallen apart thanks to the salary cap, I may see the end of the playoff run. I think that I'd rather have a team that makes it every year, but looses in the first round, rather than a shot-in-the-dark team that makes it in by luck. I mean, at least if the team is in, there's hope that they might move on, even if they have a history of choking.
