That team was like a very finely tuned machine to end the year...they were fantastic when everything was working, but if anything broke they would have been in trouble. Like Boston losing Krejci in 2010, LA losing any of Kopitar, Penner, Richards, Carter, Doughty, Quick (duh), or Brown would have been a huge blow to that team.
And they still could have missed the playoffs if not for Calgary's epic collapse.
No team looks perfect on paper and you'll see some of the best team's fans tell you why that team can't win.
I've jumped in a little off-topic here; I'll show myself out.
I deride your truth handling abilities
