The difference is Pittsburgh is a well run team with a top 5 coach and a great GM. The only thing they accept is winning. Pitt having a great defense that can transition makes a difference. Our D can only dump the puck back to the other teams sticks at the point. We are not well run, we have an AHL coach and an amateur GM and we look for and accept excuses constantly.
Again your comparison is off. We weren't comparing the important of an individual team, so i don't know where that came from. We were comparing the importance on each team of the top players they lost and their importance to the team. I'm only explaining how your comparison of the injuries we had on our team are not comparable to the ones penguins had. Again, when 2 of Pittsburghs top 4 players are out for at least 3/4's of the season, then you'd have a valid point.
