When you break it down, how do you beat this team?

top 3 defense in the west, probably the league, plus they play a defense first system, and all the forwards are 2 way forwards, so its tough to get any good scoring chances, and when you do, you only have to get the puck past 1 of the hottest keepers in the league.

Aside from that, you have to stop a 1st line that can match any other top line, then you also have to stop the 3 other lines all of which can put the puck in the net.

You can't beat them by taking the body with them, since they are a big team and will just take the body back harder

You also can't beat them with speed (unless you are phoenix fast), there is no weak points in this team.

And to think it will only get better when you consider how young everyone is. Schenn will come in and be sick good hopefully, Lewis/Clifford/Simmonds/Martinez/Doughty/JJ/Kopitar are all young and will get better over the next few seasons

Exciting times indeed
