I think Colorado's depth is underrated. Guys like Stephane Yelle, Adam Deadmarsh, Claude Lemieux and Shjon Podein were solid support players. Usually a Dave Reid or Mike Keane as the grizzled veteran on the third or fourth line. Theo Fleury brought in at the deadline one year, Dave Andreychuk came with Bourque. By around 2000 the emergence of Hejduk, Drury, and Tanguay gave them two first lines basically.
Pretty much right on. Detroit won those key games and that's the difference. Really that simple.
