the exaggerated "love" of any team doing well in the playoffs aside, the flyers "model" is still pretty damn good.
let's not forget that they are playing without Pronger, and as much as their fwds have been "flat" vs NJ, if they had a Dman of Pronger's stature playing 20+min/night, I think the series would be going quite differently.
if anything, once again the key message coming out of playoff success is to:
- get excellent goaltending
- have enough quality depth to get production out of bottom-6 fwds & either a top-4 D that can play almost full game or have a bottom pairing that can handle 12-15min/game effectively.
it's why the habs, despite the 15th finish in the east, could quite quickly become contenders with just 1-2 quality additions.
