Not to beat a dead horse, but you can also question just how well it worked.
We got a lot pts all year, we PK well and gave up a little. We had depth so that we could keep going all the way into the wall and we won a ton of pts in diffrent ways by being able to keep it up the last 10 minutes.
We looked really horrible the first 15-20 games. Hank really saved us, but there where a -- ton -- of games where we were outshot 20-40 but still won etc.
We were not good at all the last month of the season or so.
Ottawa was not a strong team, and they took us to 7. We deserved to win, yes, but we couldn't put them away. The Caps were just as good as us, and that series could have gone other way. NJD just had our numbers. They were better than us by quite some margin.
