I think the leadership change of this team is where you're seeing these games being pulled out. Rather than the quiet, reserved, "okay guys, let's keep at it" tactics of the Timonens, Kariyas, and even Greg Johnsons...you've got youthful exuberance and firebelly from Legwand, Radulov, Erat...leadership by committee with some veteran input from guys like Arnott and Gelinas. The passive bug that haunted this team over the past two years...that saw us bounced with little outcry in the first round for two straight years to the Sharks...I think it's truly gone. This team is the grittiest, heartiest team we've ever had...and we've got talent to go with it.
