Nobody is pretending that Vancouver was better than Boston last year even though they had Hamhuis out in the finals, the trophy goes to the best. Injuries are just one obstacle on the path to a championship and the best team is the one who overcomes all those obstacles. I'm sure Norfolk is banged up but their guys are either playing through it or they are getting contributions from the replacements. We need to do the same to have a chance to be called the best.
Norfork concluded the regular season with 28 consecutive wins down the stretch at one point..
Remarkably, Norfolk (55-18-1-2) concluded the regular season with a North American professional hockey record 28-game winning streak. The Admirals haven't lost since Feb. 5.
This is no fluke operation here, but a really strong team.

Signature: There is no greater demonstration of Fan patience then to suggest to "Play the Kids " and be willing to accept the consequences of those actions..
