Who do you pin the blame on then? Timonen? the offense should of scored more then 3.5 goals a game? who? Leighton was ****ing brutal against Chicago. There is no disputing that.
anyone who thinks that the matchups in the first 3 series werent a factor are in serious denial.
i am looking forward to this season with Leighton in goal when every goal he allows will be someone elses fault. Like Bryzgalov last year who appearantly didnt allow a goal that wasnt his fault.

Just so we are clear. Your best three offensive players score 6 total points and are a -21 and they get a pass. Your third pairing defense plays a TOTAL of what, ten minutes in six games and they get a pass. They are blameless because other players stepped up. Is this a correct characterization of what you are saying?
