Okay T, time for you to take your medication. The pretenders from Detroit? With their shitty goaltender? The Canucks would have beaten them.tantalum wrote:I predicted that Detroit would beat Anaheim because there are many things not to like about the Ducks game in these playoffs. They lack depth. Nediermayer and Pronger are not playing like Neidermayer and Pronger. They rarely have two offensive lines going in a game.
None of that has changed. I think they were fortunate to beat Detroit. They won two games where they were clearly outplayed thanks to goaltending of Giguere.
While Detroit is a deep team they were a bit beat up on the blueline (no Schneider is a huge loss). They haven't met a team like Ottawa who can roll four very effective lines and 6 effective D-men. They haven't met a trio up front like Alfredson-Spezza-Heatley. They haven't met a team that has all key players fully healthy (indeed Ottawa has no one injured).
They haven't met a team that has only lost 10 games in regulation (or proper playoff OT) since December 21.
They haven't met a team that is clicking on all cylinders like Ottawa is.
Ottawa in 6.
Anaheim. Senators easy ride through the crappy east hasn't prepared them for anything.
