Thanks for being gentle
I think maybe you're being a little harsh on their talent level. I never said they carried a game, they contributed. The problem didn't come down to the other lines being tired, scared yes, but not tired. The rest of the team either didn't come to play or were just outplayed by the Red Wings. It was not because of the Dan line.
Why would you want to rewrite history?
