oh enogh of this "they are faster" crap already. St.Louis would probably be our fastest player but don't sit here and tell me that Richards and Lecavalier are that much faster if at all, than guys like Gagne, Roenick, Amonte, Recchi, Zhamnov, Sharp, Primeau, to name a few. not to mention Kapanen. what did this magical speed do in game 2? the only reasons we lost game 3 was because of 2 soft goals by Esche and a defensive breakdown that led to a breakaway goal by Lecavalier. you can't blame this loss on Kapanen playing defense because he was a huge reason why they won game 2 for Christ sake.
they have speed yes, but we do to. so get over this speed thing already. it comes down to whoever shows up to play wins and the Flyers didn't in game 3.
and speaking of Ottawa, where the hell are they? didn't you have them winning the Cup this year?
BTW, more about Kapanen. he was said to have been vomiting before game 3 and has the flu or a virus.
