One thing people always talk about is 'depth' as an attribute to a team. Every year, teams face circumstances with injuries that question and test the depth of a team.

Even if the rangers get past the flyers , to get the the stanley cup, they still have to face 3 teams that will most likely have their #1 goalie playing for them....if the flyers don't have their number 1 for the first round...then it is what it is... the rangers would still have many challenges ahead of them if they get past round 1.
Yes, and frankly, luck is absolutely required to go all the way. Just the way the league works. Of course, if you're a deep team, there's a greater chance of experiencing good luck and winning more games, but sometimes crazy things happen that can't be explained, no matter how hard people try to place blame.

The team that comes out of this with a Stanley Cup will have gotten it's share of breaks. No question.

Yeah, lets keep this on topic.

I hate the Flyers and pretty much anything that has come from or is related to that town save Richter and my wife, who went to Nova.

And to be honest, I hate my wife 30% of the time and Mike's inability to age is starting to grow on my nerves...

There you have it.

Screw Philly...

As do I.

There are some "IFS" same as other team, but this team has a good chance to raise a few eye brows.

Richter's cheeks get rosier and rosier every year

Should have some experiments done on him to check that out

You're not going to be able to use it in salary negotiations, you won't be able to pawn off a ring, the cup to you should represent great play and overcoming adversity. If your team got gimme wins (not Emery but your South Park example), what adversity did your team overcome and what did they accomplish? This is more of a philosophical question, and obviously is not based on Emery being in over Mason. I'm just illustrating my point with a bit of a philosophical question. It's sort of a reductio ad absurdum argument.
I don't care if we win each game 6-5 or 1-0. I don't care if we play a bunch of AHL-call ups or the big stars. Wins are wins and winning the Cup is special, anyway you look at it.

You play the cards your dealt. No one is going to feel sorry for us if Henrik gets hurt. If Mason can't play that's their ****ing problem. The playoffs are about attrition. Quite often teams without enough depth go belly up. That's why you want the extra d-men especially.

It's that smell, you know the one. Starts about Exit 7 on the NJ Turnpike and gets progressively worse around this time....it smells like Bush League Playoff Antics

I could see the Thugs in Philly reasoning something like this if Philly loses 2 games and The King is hot and Ray is not:
Musing in locker room "must even things out somehow"
Looks at Dave Scultz and Bobby Clarke photos in dressing room prior to game 3
Some goon go after NYR goalie
Hurts Lundqvist With a tomahawk like action (almost like Ogelthorpe did it)
"Even game now" he says to coach during ejection phase
Philly (entire) team Screams "Adrian". Crowd of lunatics goes wild
Philly brass Reconfirms Wrestlemania box seats

Class until 6pm with obnoxious traffic on the way back. Juuuuuust enough time to stop off, get something to eat and get settled for puck drop.

Can't wait.

Great to see divisional playoffs again. I can still remember that one pre-season game, maybe '95 or '96, where 6 guys were tossed before the 10 min mark, about 200 penalty mins in just the first period, and like 275 total for the game. These teams used to hate each other and the playoff games were insanely intense. Good stuff
