I'd also say that it has a lot to do with the fact that a lot of our go-to guys are young, inexperienced, and haven't known anything similar to the NHL playoffs before. Remember: the Oiler dynasty of the '80s had to fail miserably in the playoffs several times before they learned what it took to win it all.
Refreshing.

I have the same opinion, we don't know the Price(pun semi-intented) just yet.

a) We dont know the price of winning.

b) It's becoming more and more apparent that it will take some time for Carey and the Ds to get on the same page, other teams are not exposing Carey, as much as the lack of coordination with a defense that is often surprised by a goaltender who can play the puck.
