Observations from the Stanley Cup Playoffs so far (and what we should learn from them)

Be careful which narrative you follow in building your team In the wake of Toronto’s fifth straight First Round loss we have already heard about them not having the right mix of players and how they are too analytically focused. That they need intangibles, and defense, and etc. Even though they had the second best goals against average in the First Round and spent the past year loading their roster with grizzled, gritty, tough veterans. It did not work.
