The way the game is played has changed quite a bit since 2007 and I believe Boudreau's Ducks would find ways to beat them. Are they a better team? In practice? No. On paper? Hell no. But would the 07 team EMBARRASS ours? I don't think so.
You're underrating how good the 06-07 team was. Up front the teams are close but on the blueline and in net the 06-07 team is significantly better. Two of the top three defensemen in the league (as well as Beauchemin) and one of the best playoff goalies the last 10 seasons.
