I don't think anyone is arguing that. He was contained. We see it year in and year out, a team's best players face extremely tough competition, thus falling largely on the shoulders of the team's depth to score. We've seen it with Joel Ward, Bryan Bickell, etic (insert name of depth forward who has a great playoff and gets a large payday.)

The Flyers depth just did not step up against the Rangers.
