Jon Quick has far out-shined Bryz, obviously. The Flyers have four players with similar points and similar defensive skills to two players on the Kings and the Kings have a far superior goalie (at least statistically), but you are telling me that Richards and Carter on this team would have meant a deeper run and their impacts are what is driving the Kings?
Can someone elaborate on this a little more than just saying "the Kings are still playing!"
There is no legitimate argument. Their goaltender is much better and their defense is held together by scotch tape. That's the difference.
