I don't see anybody on the Pittsburgh blueline who is even close to Reise.
Another advantage for Regina is the powerful 3rd line. With Clement, Collins, and Burrows, Brent Sutter has the option of really slowing down that Guidolin-Reichel-Robinson unit. Pittsburgh's 3rd line is decent, but not close to Regina's.
Can't really disagree here. I really like how my defense came out, but Regina has a very nice blueline as well. Reise is definitely the best guy here. Clement's in a class of his own as well.
Sutter's great too, but so is Boucher, both well-coached teams. I like Puppa over Maniago, but Maniago was better in the playoffs so it gets murky.
