And I dont think Magnuson has the credentials to carry the D for his pairing.

I though Winnipeg was very well suited to shutting down the Lindros line, and with it the majority of Phillie's secondary scoring. But I saw the Orr-Richard-Geoffrion trio just ripping apart Magnuson and even Sawchuk can't stop everything. Datsyuk would help a ton against Orr but cant do everything.

I did have this series going 7 and it wasn't one of the easier ones for me to decide - for every weakness in one of these teams, another strength emerged. But jkrx, I do think lack of a strong #2 defenseman was your one major weakness.
Too soon

If we could have voted on our own I wouldn't have done less than 6 for sure. I thought this was a rough matchup for the first round after the regular season voting, but luckily the voters saved me from another few games of Stevens pounding Lindros or Orr. I think the idea of being "rested" in an ATD playofff setting is a bit hollow, but I could see how my squad would particularly be impacted by a string of long series.
