Lidstrom, Rafalski, Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Crosby, Malkin, Hossa all agree... talent, over-rated... hard-work the only reason they made it to the SCF last year...
Big deal, look at the times Edmonton and Calgary made it to the Stanley cup finals on sheer force of will. And despite being less talented the Habs havn't played any better today than in the playoffs than in those late 90's early 00's. Habs havn't made it past the second round since 92-93 so don't act like this team is some juggernaut when they havn't proven anything outside of a cinderella season last year capped off with a pathetic playoff showing.

If talent alone = Stanley Cup the Rangers would have won it many times after 94. Yeah you should watch detroit play sometime if you think they don't work hard, lots of hard work and talent a good combination.

Lots of work ethic and little talent = Ryan Smyth
Lots of talent and little work ethic = Alexander Daigle

Two extremes but I think my point is made.
