I could be a little off base there but you can correct me if I'm wrong.
We had a good run after coping with serious injuries and I never once questioned the Flyers heart last year. That being said, Calgary was peaking and playing terrific hockey. Let's not forget that in a perfect hockey world Calgary would've won that series. It's all opinion anyways but I just feel Calgary was healthier and faster and had more left in the tank than we did. Iginla looked pretty awesome and that never hurts.

Calgary was just as banged up as we were. Johnsson would and Pitkanen would have been healthier for the Finals. Also a chance that Desjardins would have played.

Esche was banged up but it wasn't getting any worse. He played with that hip injury for 40 some games.
