If Tampa Bay played Toronto in the 2nd round, and Philly played Montreal in the 2nd round, the Conference final's would have been different. Montreal rolled over for Tampa, while Philly played probably the toughest team to play against physically in the league. Had Tampa's pretty boys had to play the Leafs, yes I believe they would have taken the Leafs, just as Philly did. But TB would have been beat up and Philly would have crushed them. I think people forget that although you can win a series, the physical toll taken will carry over to the next one.
Clutch? No. Do it more than 1 year and then we will talk. He has had 1 good playoff run and didn't have a decent regular season. If I had to pick clutch players from TB, he isn't one of them. It's either 26, 4 or 19. That's it.
