The CGY team that went to the SCF in '03 was lead by Craig Conroy at center. -.- We will be okay with Kyle Turris at center for a few weeks.
Exactly. We have a TON of depth and obviously you can't count on Jim O'Brien to light it up all the time, and there might be some regression, but as long as we have EK and Andy we'll be in every game..

  • This will let us see how the team deals with adversity;
  • Spezza's absence will make the team play a tighter, playoff-type game;
  • If the team wins without Spezza or even advances to the second round or conference finals without him, then...maybe we walk away from him when his contract expires and give that money to our kids.

    We'll be fine! We are in 4th at the moment and not likely to regress with us playing weak teams like Carolina and Montreal in the next week...
