Koivu matched up very well with Brind Amour so i don't really get your point. For what they bring to their respective teams, they are very similiar. The big difference is, Koivu has Ribeiro as his other top centre, while Brindy has Staal.

As for Carolina. With there great depth at centre, they didn't expose Montreal much at all. We saw Carolina have a great powerplay. Three games went to OT, most were close competitive games that could have went either way.

The difference in the series. Carolina's best players brought it game in game out, and Montreals didn't. Kovalev, Ribeiro, Ryder, Higgins were inconsistent.
