And Chicago beat them with Niemi; Niemi is a good goalie, but he is no Carey Price
Niemi had a very good playoff that year, but Chicago got away with not having a star goalie because the teams was so rich in so many positions. It is a road that can bring you success, but its also a road less traveled because it takes an extraordinary team to get away with it. Same can be said with Detroit in the osgood years.

I'll take the shortcut, and start with a star goalie.
