About how far back in the tread is your Smith montage, I would like to see that. But since you are into making montages, I'd also like to see one off all the goals from the Philly series. The ones I remember most were direct results of horrible defensive plays, Orpik laying down in the crease and Vorachek skating around him is burned in my brain, the Hartnell cross crease pass for the tip in, several back door open nets. Of course the Talbot miss play was awful, and all MAF.

But I've felt the D has been weak for years, sure it is easy to get to the playoffs in the NHL, but when the weak teams are weeded out one dimensional teams can't survive. Maybe watching all of the goals they gave up vs Philly will make me see it's more MAF than the D
