All that team was missing was good goaltending...maybe a little more heart but that was a very nice looking team.
They had good size, good scoring depth, speed, clutch factor and some guys were playing some of the best hockey of their careers. (Kovalev, Kostitsyn, Lapierre, Plekanec, Markov). They also had a good 4th line with guys who could fight and muck it up, not to mention there was decent toughness on the blue line.
Gainey didn't do that bad of a job then....he wasn't perfect, but did a decent job. He then added guys like Tanguay and Lang next year but the injuries really hurt the team.
