Koivu/Cole injury impact.

When Koivu was injured there were many references to how the Canes were without Cole. The implication was "suck it up." What was not mentioned is that the Canes had weeks to adjust to Cole's very unfortunate injury while the Habs were dealt a huge loss in the midst of a tough play-off series. A second important difference was that Orpik was punished [ albeit not harshly enough ] while the Habs were left dealing with the non-call and trying to refocus from both the injury and the non-call. And of course we'll never know what might have happened during the "lost" 4 minute penalty.

If Saku was a real leader he would have gotten injured before the trade deadline.

With both Cole and Koivu healthy the Canes would have swept the Habs.
