Teams like MIN with Burns, Bouchard and Brandner and CBS with Nash and Fritsche seem like their faster, but those young guys make it seem so.

I mean, our only young player is Lundmark and he's even a sophomore.
I disagree. You can be 30 and be a heck of alot faster then someone who's 20. Age doesn't mean a thing in this case. Messier is old and he could outskate Richard Scott. Nedved could outskate 2/3 if not more of Hartford whos full of young guys. I think the Rangers problem is going into the play hard and sacrficing themselves to make the play. I think that can also be contagious.... if Lindros starts throwing his body around and taking the hit in order to get to the puck first then I think you'll see other players following suit.
