•If it becomes a special teams battle, NJ's depth (significantly better second units) should win it.
Good series, BBS.
I didn't comment on your comparisons as they were all spot on. You have the edge on the backend, in net, and overall in special teams. Ultimately if Pittsburgh will have success it'll have to come from my top six, with all the other areas I'm conceding an edge. I'll need Lindros's line to outperform Bowie's and Orr to do his thing if I want to win. It'll be a tough undertaking so we'll just have to see how it plays out.
Good series for sure and appreciate the debate.
