You do realize that was when the team fell apart, right? The second half of last year's season was a total disaster. With all the off-ice (Kovalev, Kostitsyns) and chemistry issues. Plus, Price's regressing play due post-injury. This is a different team with different players. Cammy and Kostitsyn are legit scorers with lethal wrist shots who are working hard (opposite of lazy!) right now.

Brodeur hasn't been playing as godly as people think. His stats are inflated because he barely sees any shots/game (around 20-25) and was outplayed by Emery, Ward, etc in recent playoff years. Ask any NJ fan. His team in front of him has made him look much better than he really is. At 37, it's hard to sustain a good level of play due to slower reflexes, so I'm not bashing him, I'm just telling the truth.

If MTL shows up, they should be able to score on him, no question.
