I'm still not really convinced that both of your top pair are better then Seibert. But as I said, you definitely have the better top pair.
my reasons to vote for Lada:
1 - counterattack off the first line. Richard will do his damage, but how well can Minnesota counter the what will be thrown back at them by Clarke, Balon and Hossa when they get the puck?
2 - superior second line. Hawerchuk and especially Joliat could be effective first liners in this draft on many a team, but being able to roll them as a 2nd line could very well be the difference in this series.
3 - Goaltending. And that's not a knock on Lehman since he's a very effective goalie in his own right. But he's just not quite on par with Brimsek. It's the biggest area where Lada will have to hope to steal a game or two, and he's quite capable of doing so.
