If we can make the playoffs, we can give teams like Buffalo or Pitt a hard time. NJ or Wash would run us over though...

Not sure about NJ KrazieJoe, Washington would thump us.....

Not to mention that western conference teams have man-handled the eastern teams. Even with Kovalchuk, HGH and an act of God the Bruins would probably pull even with Chicago and San Jose at this point

We'd hold Washington even through 6 or 7 games if we played the system. NJ would open-a-can on us.

Playoffs is playoffs, if not SJ would have won the last 3 cups. Anyone who picked TB, Ana or Car to win their cups is a homer, that is why you play the games.
A hot goalie, a trade or even a minor leaguer, a rookie or an underacheiver can be the difference come playoffs.
The battle is to play a full season and get into the playoffs and then play your hand not the cards youv'e been dealt. The best hand does not always win.

I would rather go into the playoffs 6,7 or 8th seed and be healthy and on a hot streak. There is certainly time for that to happen. Who knows, maybe WE will finally be the team where our goalie can steal a series away from a powerhouse team this year, ala Cujo back in the day.

New Jersey goes through offensive woes like the Bs do at times. The Canes proved that Broduer is beatable even at home during a seventh game. Broduer does still own us until we beat him. Much rather see him in the second or third round.
Washington's goaltending is shabby at best. Sorry Varmalav and Theodore do not frighten me but the Caps offense does. Well having said all that the Bs need to get healthy and get in first which is in slight jeopardy.
Viva La Tuukka Rask!
