the 2012 team had a LOT of luck go their way though. The injury bug stayed away for the most part, Lundqvist was out of this stratosphere from December to February where they won a lot of games, etc. I think this team playing to their strengths will be definitely a better team than 2012, our depth was **** then and it's better now. But again, like every SC winner, luck really has to go their way. So yes, I think this team can be better, but will it?

Edit: The biggest advantage this team has over the 12 team IMO is defensive depth. In game 3 against WSH, Torts rolled like 3 defensemen that whole overtime. No more Stu Bickel, and all of the d-men can play 20 minutes a game. Having a bottom pairing of Moore/Stralman/DZ is such a luxury that this team really needs to take advantage of.
