If emery wasn't injured we would have won, no doubt in my mind.

All we needed was average goaltending and no doubt Emery could have at least provided that! The goaltending in that series for both teams was beyond crapola. Niemi made more situational saves in some of the key games but otherwise he was pedestrian. Leighton however was so brutal....he played in back of his net all series and looked timid. His angles sucked.

It's funny how with the resigning of Emery again Holmgren pretty much implied that with Emery we probably could have won the cup. But that is no secret although it's baffling how after that debacle of a series Holmgren kept Leighton around!

Right after Hossa scored. Can't give up that goal.

There were so many totally deflating goals that series. The fact that it went to six, and almost seven was a feat in itself.

If that team has an NHL goaltender in net for the Finals people would have them in the discussion as one of the best teams since the lockout.

They were a shootout loss in game 82 from missing the playoffs. They probably wouldn't have been remembered as one of the best teams post-2005 lockout, but it would have been remembered as one of the most remarkable runs in playoff history (making the playoffs due to the shootout and coming back from from 0-3 down against the Bruins... to ultimately win the Cup).

Yeah agreed, that team barely snuck in as the 7th seed. Then Briere went off, Pronger put the team on his back, and everything seemed to come together during the playoffs. Even the goaltending was good during the Montreal series although that was mostly Pronger, Timonen, Coburn, and Carle playing 50 minutes a game.

Yeah that's probably more accurate.

However, that team was picked to be in the Finals before the season began by many people. They had the talent, but underachieved under Stevens and his "who needs to be in shape?" philosophy.

On paper, the Flyers in 2010 were one of the best since the lockout. On the ice? Yeah, different story.

If they had won the Cup, I do think the on-paper lineup would have certainly put them in that discussion just like it did with the Kings. They were an eight seed, let's not forget.

Two words: goalie carousel. If Emery played through the season injury-free, the team (arguably) wouldn't have needed the shootout heroics on game 82 to get into the playoffs. Of course, every team has "what if's" every season, and we can pin the Finals mostly on Leighton becoming Swiss cheese, but the team went into super-D when Leighton took over, and that was their strength through the playoffs.

if they were a higher seed who knows what happens. its all about matchups and things fell pretty well for the Flyers that playoff run.

Yeah I remember the Penguins were really good again that year but Halak beat them giving us a pretty easy ECF.

Something to remember now I think. We don't actually need to have the best goalie in the league, just a some decent who can bale you out now and then. Obviously the D we have now is nowhere near as good as back then but if they can play well together you never know...

Let's not get carried away here, Emery played ok, but the team as a whole including him was bad enough to warrant John Steven's getting fired halfway through the season BEFORE we picked up Leighton. Who knows what had happened had he stayed healthy.

Yea, pretty good point here too. Leighton came in and played pretty well in the regular season, actually had better numbers than Emery.

IIRC scoring was the problem at the beginning of the season, not defense/goaltending.

Our bottom pairing was pretty terrible in the finals as well.

Carbomb brings the Cup to a Rush concert

Kind of a little treat for those who went to the concert in Chicago on 6-28. Fun for hockey fans...and I'm sure those 3 good canadian boys enjoyed it as well (the privilege of being a "rock star"). Cut it off after 2:20 if you don't enjoy the music.

Scoring was atrocious down the stretch. Leighton and the defense actually kept us in games, though we did end up losing many of them by a goal.

Emery brought his own numbers down because of his hip issues, though. He tried to play through them for a while. When he was still healthy he was pretty damned good, and he was good in front of a team that was slowly collapsing under Stevens.

Didn't he get a shutout his last game with us? The guy is a warrior!

Don't enjoy the music? You'd have to be legally ******** not to like Rush.
