I know everyone was picking LA again to go far and possibly repeat but honestly I don't see it. I think they have a high chance of missing the whole show this year.
Very tough for a goalie to sustain God-mode for that long.
Sutter really brought them together, got them focused, even players who had a rep for having some difficulties with professionalism (Richards, Carter, Penner, Doughty) and they were locked in as a team, and really built for the playoffs.
I think the compete level and toughness was just better than anybody else last year, and Quick was on another level.
