Seidenberg, I felt, was definitely the best dman on Boston, by a clear, yet slight, margin. I thought their defense was actually kind of porous throughout that whole run, for long stretches of time, anyways. They played a tough team game, and that stifled a lot of opposing offense, but they gave away a ton of odd man rushes, too. Thomas, well geez, that was one of the best performances in the playoffs that I've seen. Hasek, Quick, Roy on two occasions, and Giguere are the only ones in my lifetime that I would put in the same echelon.
If I were a hockey player I'd agree 110%.
