Its like Obyrne with us , if you team him up with Hamrlik on a top pairing , is he really
a top 3 dman ? Not a chance at this point .

Phillys role players are better than ours , for Umberger to dominate in this series and he is not one of their top players is a huge boost . I dont see Latendresse , Smoke, or Lapierre doing what he is doing , and keep in mind Gagne has missed most of the season , and Knuble has missed playoff time. Take Plekanek away this whole playoff
and lose one of the Kosty boys , and we dont have the depth they have right now.
I don't think Phillie has a guy of Ryder's calibre in the stands each night...or O'byrne for that matter.
