I think they key is finding a player that will fare well in playoff hockey is resiliency and some "metal toughness". Guys like Datsyuk or Zeterberg aren't human recking balls on the ice, yet they are extremely effective even in the post season. They are really hard to push off the puck.. actually they are really hard to hit. They aren't afraid to go to the net and score ugly goals if they need too (which doesn't happen a lot, because they are so damned talented!) Moreover, they check hard and pick pocket every opposing player with the puck.

Oh yeah, they also have a perennial Norris trophy winning defensman to back them up... I think you guys know that this before mentioned player doesn't really hit either...

They key is to have a group of players that hate loosing, nothing more, nothing less....
