You clearly misunderstood the central message of Grange's article.

He's trying to say, with the growing power in the East, going to the playoffs would be foolish. His intention isn't to bash on our record, he's actually suggesting that we play even more poorly to reward ourselves with a higher draft pick. For instance, a 4th overall pick would [b]most likely[b] be much better than a 9th overall pick.

Once you try to lose, you will never win.
