If you can't score, you can't win. Even if you play all the suffocating defense you want.
Our defense was nothing to write home about. Our offense couldn't complete a pass when it mattered. This team still needs a lot of work. Staal can be a godsend for our blue line very soon though. Let's just hope he's the real deal, and I really think he is. We still will need another #1 though. Roszival hasn't impressed me at all season, and I can't see this team going deep with him playing as many minutes as he does.

Detroit is about 3 steps up from this team. They have pretty much the perfect team. The only criticism I can give is that they should have finished this series in game 5. The Stanley Cup was in the darn building and their fans were screaming, and they couldn't pot one in 2+ OT's. Sure made it interesting

Congrats to Detroit. They deserved it big time
