Look at Anaheim last season, look at Florida a few seasons ago... All these teams were extremely hot going into the playoffs and did the unthinkable. A lucky bounce here, a bad penalty there, a missed call here, and boom... You advance in the playoffs.

Look at what happened against Carolina 2 yrs ago. Also, a hot goalie, strong defensive play, and desciplined hockey all go a long way in a best of 7 series.
That's what I'm saying. Maybe not legit cup contenders, but Florida, Anaheim, Washington, and Carolina were not legitimate either. And for those of you keeping score, that's four times in the last eight years a team that wasn't supposed to be close made it to the finals. They all got hot and they all had good goaltending. Who knows, maybe it will be us this year, and maybe we'll win that game seven instead of losing it. Don't you want to give us the best chance possible to make this dream a reality?
