Or maybe the 'out of gas' thing is a personal problem. It didn't hurt Detroit, Dallas or Colorado all those years they played each other out west. Or New Jersey the two years they played us. We're always the team that gets worn down.

The series again the Leafs was the longest series in NHL history. It wasn't your normal NHL playoff series.

Also we were missing our best defenseman, Roenick, Yushkevich and leClair were each playing with one arm. Gagne still had no wheels.

If you don't think that stuff matters than that isn't being fair to the team. That's why people who think the regular season is meaningless are wrong. It's important to get as easy a first round match as possible.

I don't think being tired or worn down has been an issue for this team since the mid-80's Cup runs, those teams were always injured and spent by the time they reached the Oilers.
