-Halifax has the better playmaking upfront
-Halifax has the better goalscoring up front
-Halifax has the better overall scoring depth
-Halifax has the better physical players and puck winners
-Halifax has the better constructed lines with a balance of scoring and checking on every line
-Halifax has the better puck movers on the blue line
-Regina has an unproven Golonka as there primary scoring threat, who played in todays equivalent of the SEL (Yes behind the NHL and the KHL) How can a team with him as there best offensive weapon being playing in the MLD finals?
-even if you adjust size, Regina has the smallest and softest top 6 in the league. This is a massive advantage for Halifax as our puck moving defenseman and skilled forwards will have more room to produce.
-Regina has to rely on sargent to play both PP's. Yes this is a factor, especially in a close series 1-2 short handed goals could eb the difference and the memoentum that comes with them will be a huge benefit for Halifax. Not only does a tired Sargent create SH chances for Halifax, but it will take away from the PP chances for Regina has Halifax would have an easier time killing of penalties with a tired dman on for an entire PP.
