Fair Enough.

But you can't use Boston as the Prototype to win cups.

They had some fortuitous match ups, which we most likely won't see. They got to play a mediocre Habs team, a struggling philly team, and a marginal TB team with a hot PP. The only real quality team they faced was Vancouver who was hurt on their backend and had terrible goaltending.

Boston got all the breaks in that run. I doubt we would be as fortunate. Especially with Pitt healthy this year.

Philly and Pens are both much better teams than any of the teams in EC playoffs last season.
