I agree the referees haven't screwed this series up yet in either direction, so let's worry about it when it happens, and to the severity that it happens.
I think lots of people have underestimated Calgary's speed. This isn't the fastest team in the league, but for such a physical, hard work and hard hitting team, they're pretty damn fast. I think this cominbation could cause Detroit problems. But it will come down to the penalties the flames take. Vancouver killed Calgary on the powerplay and Detroit, if given enough opportunities, will make it even worse.
Also, there's nothing wrong with respecting your opponent, but I was reading Detroit's respect for the flames in the paper today. The flames are a two man team and once guys like Legace and McCarty get passed Iginla and Kiprusoff, they don't mention anyone else specifically as being dangerous. hahaha I just get a kick out of that.
