Garbage? He's had one game below league average SV% in the series.

 

Holy hyperbole.

Team started their tailspin when they made the big trade.  And forgot how to take advantage of power plays.  

 

The hottest team going into the playoffs was the Blues.  Unfortunate timing.

Trade deadline rentals are bad mojo most of the time. One of the few I can ever remember hitting the jackpot was the '94 Rangers, and even then it was bottom 6 depth they added, not top 6 scoring.

Lol the ducks finally fire the loser Boudreau and what happens:

They finally win a game 7! Funny how that works.

Boudreau, nice guy, but a terrible coach for a team with actual Stanley cup aspirations.

Of course though, it's Minnesota, the rubes will never expect anything more than a first or 2nd round exit anyways.

If that was a serious argument, please bear in mind that the Caps lost theirs.

Let's also be clear here....the Ducks were lucky there even was a Game 7.  If Edmonton wasn't pre-pubescent for their average age that series might have been a sweep the other way.

Other than game 6 I thought the Ducks were the better team in every game.
