Erskine crease clearing D-man.
Much better depth: Erat, Laich, Johansson, etc.
Their defense is far better than ours without Staal. Green, Carlson, Alzner > McDonagh, Girardi, Del Zotto.
Holtby has .930+ sv percetange past 2 months.
25-10-2 their last 37
It'll be a series only because of Lundqvist, otherwise they'd probably sweep us.
They were only mediocre early the year because Oates new coach and he implemented the same system the Devils had. The same system last year that ousted our team in the playoffs. The same system that wore out all our players. Same system that got Torts heavily outcoached.
A bunch of vague statements does not a series make.
Also, of course NYR would probably get swept without their best player. Washington would probably get swept without OV. Any team with an elite player depends on that elite player for the playoffs.
