Your first statement is entirely subjective, and in my opinion, wrong... but that's cool. Remember, Hasek and Osgood have both won cups as starters, so I'd say they have the advantage come playoff time. Even more so when you couple in the fact that Detroit rarely even lets the opposition shoot. So stop and think about that... amazing defensive system that allows the fewest shots in the NHL, with Dominik Hasek in goal, and Chris Osgood there to bail him out? They will excel at playoff hockey.
Also, you said Hasek was 'bad' last year. You're wrong. With Ottawa, he was on his way to another Vezina before he was injured in the olympics. Which, pretty much ruined my year, because the Sens would have breezed through the playoffs had he remained healthy.
And finally, Joe Sakic is busting his ass in Colorado, not only Paul Stasny.
