Who would've thought the key to this team is a healthy Kyle Quincey?!?!?!

Rouse would have still played. They probably would not have made the move for Mironov or Macoun. Don't EVER underestimate Bob Rouse!!!


The answer is yes.

Konstantinov was the league's best defenseman. He would be replacing Bob Rouse on this hypothetical roster, assuming no other changes. The team without him was Cup-capable even without Vladdy and without the motivation to win it for Vladdy. Having Vladdy instead of Rouse would have more than covered that difference.

Even better; Imagine Konstantinov wasn't in his crash, Grigorenko wasn't in his, and Fischer didn't have heart issues. We still draft Fischer and Kronwall...Lidstrom and Konstantinov handing off the reins to Fischer and Kronwall? Grigorenko was Ovechkin-level when he was drafted, and then in a car crash he shattered his femur and nearly died from an embolism.

Scary roster... in a good way.

Glad you posted this first. I figured I'd get some heat for saying the Flyers, but I'm from the area.
