Wiht the Ducks, with the Hawks, to a lesser degree with the Wings but then you still have incredible talent but still need a Zetterberg, a Franzen, and still some great 3rd line with Maltby, Draper......Honestly, the formula is still there. Boston with Paille and Campbell are the Draper of Maltby of these playoffs. Or the Pahlsson and Nieds of their time. So talent always prevail but will always need that physical element in it. And great goaltending is obviously WAY MORE the rule than 1 year of Leighton....
Was leighton as bad in thiose playoffs as people make him out to be?
