Most did not have them as a playoff candidate before the year. They have a legit shot at a Cup–I do not have the stats handy but I do believe they have one of the top 2 records vs other playoff teams (as it currently stands). They have have showed success ve the top teams in the East & West. They can roll three lines that can all score, Stahl has blossomed into a top player (how he does not make team Canada is beyond me), Gerber is playing lights out and they are very deep defensively. By the way I am a Caps fan not a canes fan. But enjoy the canes style of attacking, crisp skating/passing play.

Its the season that an unknown or ok/good player jumps into the spotlight. Spezza is doing quite well, but it was expected. Heatley was always incredible. How are these players having breakout seasons?
