Dupuis, Kunitz, and Neal laugh at your talent appraisal.
We just shut down the top goal scorer in the league in Ovechkin. Crosby and Malkin looked like absolute **** the first two games.
You really don't think Dupuis, Kunitz and Neal feed off of Crosby and Malkin? If they had that much talent they wouldn't have been complete no shows when Malkin and Crosby looked out of it. So I laugh at your talent evaluation. Dupuis and Kunitz are probably two of the most overrated players in the league. They're average 2nd/3rd line two way players that can fill in on any line and are catapulted to 1st line status because of who they play with. Much like Hagelin would be best suited on the 2nd or 3rd line, but can fill in on the first and does a damn good job of it.
Maybe we would have difficulties with our injury riddled lineup, but with Staal and McDonagh in the lineup as well as Lundqvist in between the pipes I would feel very confident going up against Pittsburgh. They're just not that good when you shut down their top 2 guys. Get in their heads and its that much easier. The bruins just showed that.
