I've been watching Detroit in the playoffs.
They have a no-name defense (except for Kronwall) with an elite goalie. Surely the Canes can do as well, better - as long as they have their elite goalie healthy. Though it must be said that Detroit has some forwards who are outstanding defensively. Is that what we're missing?
I also have noticed Patrick Eaves playing 3rd-4th line for Detroit (and scoring the first goal in game 6). The Canes gave up on him years ago. . .
