When Detroit shut down the LoD line, they shut down the Flyers. When Detroit shut down Crosby in the finals, Malkin saved the day.
And do I really have to mention the difference between having M.A. Fleury vs Snow/Hextall heh
Well MA Fleury before 12 there is a point yes, but Malkin wasn't around in 06 and missed 15 games in 10.
Still the LOD and Crosby's line mates are night and day.
I'm not one to criticize Erics playoff performance, you can see Phil I believe for that, but it is notable that Sid's in much better and was accomplished at a younger age as well.
