Admirable job by Billy in comparing the components. Sorry I couldn't contribute, as I have been (and am still) in the midst of a cross-country move that has pretty much eliminated my online time.

Thanks to seventieslord and vecens for sticking up for my team a bit in my absence.

Reasons I believe Pittsburgh can win this series:

Balanced scoring - all four lines have offensive upside. There is no "defense only" or pure "energy" line. At the same time, both my 3rd and 4th lines will be a pain in the neck to play against.

Playoff goaltending - Both Roloson and Gilbert led their teams to deep runs in the Stanley Cup playoffs, at times playing lights out to carry their teams to victory. Playoff hockey won't faze them.

Coaching: Al McNeil's record of success at the highest level of hockey speaks for itself.
