Kopitar is good, but to me he is nowhere near that level either. See Quick playing insane hockey again. Two different teams, different styles, different top talent. Pittsburgh had arguably three of the best centers in the game for many years, and one Cup. Chicago played a much more offensive game, and granted Toews played great, but what's happened since?
I could go on and on..
Anyway, must head out, again thanks for the awesome peaceful discussions ladies and gents.
To win the Cup you need extremely high talent with a decent D/goalie (Crosby, Malkin, Fleury etc) or a lot of grit and a good goalie.
Boston is a very tough team to beat...center depth down the middle, Chara is their #1D, Thomas played out of his mind.
Chicago falls into the category of having high talent. Toews, Kane, Hossa, Keith, Seabrook...
Kings fall into having high talent and grit. Dustin Brown was great, Kopitar is a #1C, Doughty is a #1D, Quick is an elite goalie.
We don't have elite talent or grit. We're a team still trying to find it's identity.
