This year... after they just met in the finals.
After the fad from last years playoffs and the one from the year before that and the one from the year before that.

Nobody's been extolling the virtues of Morrow and Doan as the missing piece of a Cup winner for the past decade.

"Leadership" and momentum are unpredictable. During Calgary's Cup run, Iginla had (staged) a fight in every single series and in their post-lockout 2006 1st round exit as well. After each successive fight, the team accomplished less and less.

Counting on a player to change the momentum on your team through physical play is highly unreliable.

In this one?

OHL = 3.65 goals per game
QMJHL = 3.35 goals per game

Full season paces:
Couturier = 44 goals, 117 pts
Landeskog = 51 goals, 95 pts

Adjusted full season paces
Couturier = 44 goals, 117 pts
Landeskog = 46 goals, 87 pts

Last year, full season paces:
Couturier = 41 goals, 96 pts
Landeskog = 27 goals, 51 pts

.... and we don't even have any idea if Couturier is even at full strength yet.
