Murray may not be a top defender, but he's a tank. I'm sure there was someone else I'm missing from SJ.

I'd love to see how Hall, Eberle and RNH handle this gauntlet of defense during a Cup run, let alone adding physical forwards as well.

I'd love to see who the whiners would be after that.

Pretty sure a list was posted of recent Finals teams and the D-pairings they had to face en route. Vancouver's gauntlet was the consensus #1 in terms of difficulty.
