Another look at the Final Eight
Colorado and Montreal have been eliminated already, and the odds tell us the Rangers and Sharks could soon follow, but here's a bit of a different breakdown of the eight teams that made the second round of the postseason:
Ranked by size (no goaltenders)
|Team||Ht (in.) |
|Team||Wt (lbs) |
The Red Wings are particularly interesting, especially if this team can win a championship with so much European content. Five of the NHL's top six scoring leaders are Czech, Swedish or Russian, although all four starting goaltenders of the teams either advanced or likely to are Canadian.
I'll have more of a statistical breakdown when this round's over.
