I can give that situation a little grace because they ran into a goalie who was on one the hottest streaks in history, and also because they were really good in the pre-cap era; the good teams from that era would probably lay waste to most of the good teams now.

Anyways, calling someone a liar is a bit much and the reason I bothered to respond. It's hard to lie when the topic is subjective. There's no way that the 05-06 team should be in this discussion.
Yea, that was a bit harsh.

It's just we got a bit lucky with that run. Anaheim wasn't the same team that won the cup and it wasn't some big thing to beat them, and everyone knows how bad San Jose was in the playoffs.
