Precisely, if you watched the games, they were close, the caps were just really disorganized and Boudreau got outcoached...what a surprise.

Better goaltending.
More depth on D.
And forwards that care about backchecking.

Marty St.Louis is leading their team in scoring...but he has a -5 in +/-. The guy is not Mr. Selke, I'll tell you that.
A lot of assumptions on your part, he's been a selke finalist a few times and led the league in +/- before. Its common knowledge that St.Louis is a good 2 way player.

Are you talking about that year where St.Louis finished with a +35 in 04?
Or are you talking about the -23 in 08 or the -8 in '10?

Just wonderin'....cuz the way you make it sound he's Bob Gainey.

I love you too but I also love the way Julien has been coaching in the playoffs, can't really complain since he is the first coach to coach this team into the ECF in 18+ years.

lol great idea lets change all the lines and forfiet any chemistry that we got so far in the hopes it works out. I like the change boston is making, bringing kelly up to the 2nd line and inserting segy into the third. Seems like the least amount of damage to any chemistry already in place.

Jehre Lehtinen was -8 this season, Danield Alfredsson was -19 in just 54 games. Two of the best two way forwards in the game. Datsyuk won the Selke last season with a +/- of just 17.

Somehow you got me saying that St.Louis is a good 2 way player with comparing him to one of the best defensive forwards ever

My apologies. Just noticed a lot of Lightning fans giving input so thought it was safe to interject as well. I forgot who's board I was on.

I like talking to other fanbases. It's fun to get a different perspective. It's too bad a few chuckleheads (usually on both sides) tend to ruin it for the rest.

And for those who say go to the main board for inter-team talk? No thank you. Place is a cesspool and I need to update my shots.
