Note... the worst goaltending in the league until they added Roloson 10 games before the end of the season, along with key depth on the blueline in February. That team went to the Cup final, beating San Jose and Anaheim as well, it was a very good team and in particular, a very deep team. Once they added Roloson, it changed everything.
