Here's the problem. Those teams that upset us in 2003, 2004 and 2006 didn't just do it with hot goaltending. They did it with tight checking, physical defense and hard work. They also limited their mistakes.
This team doesn't do any of those other things well, even if Mrazek plays amazing.
Personally I'm hoping more for a "2010 Halak" type scenario. That Montreal team was not overly tight or physical. At least not like Anaheim in 03, Calgary in 04 or Edmonton in 06 were. Halak beat Pittsburgh and Washington almost by himself.
