Not a single Toronto Maple Leaf player has ever won the cup, and worse, not one player on that roster has played a single playoff game as a Toronto Maple Leaf. Only 8 Leafs players has been in more than 4 playoff games.

Huge difference and it will be an important one. Having players who know what it takes to win a Stanley Cup is a pretty important aspect to a playoff team.
True, we have more guys who have a significant amount of playoff experience than they do, but their core is fairly experienced: Lupul and JVR (both with 39 games) have gone to the Conference Finals or further. Kessel has 15 games of experience, including 2 series against us, so it would be nothing new for him. Phaneuf has 25 games.

I will agree that where us having more playoff experience may be the difference is in net, but if Price doesn't pull it together, it won't matter.
