I agree - but all teams have trouble containing the likes of Crosby and Ovechkin. I think with an improved 5-6 pairing to prevent obvious mismatches, we have the D and the defensive minded forwards to limit them. We definitely need to prove it, but so far this year - I think we are showing we are just as good.

Those teams still have suspect goaltending and D. We have just as much firepower without the first overall talent. Our three top lines matches up against either of those two teams easily. IMO
