They have skill (though admittedly diminished by the losses of Willy and Anze), they have toughness and they have character. This is where team cohesiveness gets put to the test. I have no doubt that they'll play for each other and that could spell trouble for other teams.

Maybe I'm drinking the Kool Aid, maybe they go out 4-0, but I don't think so. Regardless of who we play I think we'll give them a run for their money. Of course, all of this presupposes that we make the playoffs... if we don't then we don't have the talent or the character that I think we have.
This. I can't understate how incredibly sorry I feel for Kopitar and the sinking feeling I had in my gut last game, but I'm excited to see how this team responds to some SERIOUS adversity.
