If Bryzgalov fails and Giguere continues his fall back to mediocrity, they might be in tough for the playoffs. They have all kinds of opportunities for the sophomore slump, and among all of the teams with realitic chances in the West, Anaheim relies the most on their kids. If anything, Pronger adds an element of expectation that might be hard to exact from their young core.
That is a lot of "if's", and I fully expect Anaheim to compete for the division title, but it's not a given.
Oh, they'll split the series.
How would Giguere be falling back towards mediocrity exactly? When he started the team got 70 percent of all available points...that's alot better than mediocre.
