Colorado and Detroit, they've got enough players that can score and good defense, and experience, you'd think they would know how to handle adversity.

But why Toronto? Every year, I hear the same things about how they're going to contend for the SC, but they usually have the same players and some glaring weakness. For the past 2 playoffs, they rode on the back of Belfour, but they don't have all the right pieces, IMO. And as long as they play Ottawa in the 1st round, they advance, but that's it. Same with Boston and Montreal, the Habs are pumped up to play the B's, but after that, they run out of gas.
