The playoffs are about match-ups, almost as much as anything else. 2010 was a great example for that.
The Kings were also first overall in goals for after the Carter trade; so they had an acquisition that changed their team in a big way. The early season offense that largely generated those stats wasn't the same offense that won the Cup.
Yes, luck and matchups are also crucial....but outside of Montreal, I can't say I'd be comfortable against anybody.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
