Toughest season to win Stanley Cup?
posted at 3/19/2013 8:58 PM EDT
During the lockout, I was of the mindset that with the shortened season this year's Stanley Cup champs might not be worthy and the season might be tainted or something.
Lately, as I watch the Bruins play a compressed schedule and teams playing 3 in 4 or 5 in 7, I have changed my mind and believe this year's playoffs might be just as tough - or tougher than previous years...
The fatigue factor will run through most of the regular season making the playoff run extremely hard, although it is the same for all the teams. Thoughts?

There is no such thing as an easy season, to win the cup.
I think this year's cup winner will need the same thing they would need, in an 82 game season...
-a quality team, good health, excellent goaltending. Oh yeah, and a "lucky jacket" :)
