IMO; we are a "chance cup" team. In other words, a low rated contender. I know people will scoff at this but look no further than the 2006 champs who arguably had no business winning it all. That team had 4 rounds of luck on their side. In series 1, the Habs had Carolina by the throat until Williams stick got Koivu in the eye & the whole series changed. Momentum went to the Canes. In the 2nd series the Devil's had a 1-0 series lead & as time was dying down in game 2 with a 1-0 Devil's lead, Staal fired the puck below the goal line & beat Brodeur, a puck that Brodeur would have stopped 1,000 other times. In the 3rd series, the Sabres injury woes were so bad they had an AHL level defense. And finally in the 3rd period of game 1 versus the Oilers, Roloson got an MCL courtesy of a collision with Ladd. Carolina won that cup on more than luck alone but these events didn't hurt them either. Who's to say that the stars can't align for us?
