The A-Line (Elias-Arnott-Sykora) was fast and creative. Overall, they were a balanced 4 lines deep with a formidable 3 defense pairings. And Larry Robinson coached a relatively more wide open system than was customary of the Devils' organizational philosophy.

It may not be an exact similarity, but the progression of the Devils series has certain parallels with the Rangers' current & projected run: Two LONG series in the Quarters and Semi's, and a relatively short & easy conference finals.

(I really need to stop over-analyzing and get a good night's sleep before Armageddon takes over the Tri-State area for the next 2 weeks... and LESS THAN 48 hours yet again! Sweet Dreams, my fellow Blue Seat -B-tards!!! )
Sleep, who can sleep? I'm still pumped.
