Agreed, somewhat. Talentwise, you are right, even before Tyuts and Karel went down this was a no-name defense. However, we have retreated into a playoff defensive mode before the playoffs have started. Hopefully, IF we make it, we will be more used to that defensive/playoff hockey mindset compared to some other teams that haven't been in it because they have been playing playoff desperation hockey. That's why I always thought the Devils did so well in the POs even when their regular seasons weren't so stellar.
