They traded for versteeg the other night, take a look at their team, the their style of play (playoff hockey) etc and what can you say? The only questionmark might be goaltending but they got to game6 of the finals with basically Michael freakin Leighton, and Bobrovsky certainly is an upgrade from him.
Do you think any team has a good chance against them? Nucks got their injuries and red wings never seem to be healthy either or play to their potential, what do ya'll think?
Their goaltending seems at least as good as the Red Wings has had since Hasek ---- i.e., more than serviceable with the potential of one of their two goalies turning hot in the playoffs.
For what it's worth, here's the PPG numbers for their D-men:
Call me a homer, but Van has the best first line if not 2cnd as well, better Tender and the best backup in the league. We are injured big time right now, depending on our AHL defence. When our D is healthy we are almost as strong as Philly in that department, we also have 3 of the top five for plus/minus players and a revamped Lou. Kesler is playing awsome. I would LOVE to see a Van/Philly final. Van can stop Philley.
