Maybe it's not top 5 but it's certainly top 10 (I'd say right about #10). The thing that makes the Wings so good for so long is coaching and their system. The thing that has made the Devis so successful for so long is coaching and their system. If the Devils were only good because of Brodeur then they certainly wouldn't be leading the division with him out for almost the entire season. They are obviously more than just a one-man show goalie. Their defense isn't as good as ours. Their forwards aren't as good as ours. Without Brodeur their goalies aren't as good as ours. So why are they better than us??? The Devils do more with less and we don't come close to playing the best we can, that's all about coaching.
The thing about the both of us, that is kind of rare is that our top players are all 2-way players. Carter, Richards, and gagne; and Datsyuk, Zetterburg, and Hossa. All 6 of them play PP, PK and even.
