Honestly, all games from our series could have gone either way. That series could have been 3-1 us going in to that game 5. We just do not have the offensive prowess needed to win consistently. We went something like 2-44 on the PP that series, and lost three 1 goal games.

The difference between us and Tampa is that they can execute when opportunities present themselves, while we could not. The only thing holding us back is the fact that we have no PPQB and really have no top line offensive threats besides Gabby who played well but he just couldnt score.

Honestly bring in a puck moving defensman who can run a powerplay, and maybe 1-2 more offensive minded players who have the skill needed to score points, and we win that series and we are playing Philly this round. We have a great set of gritty players who can chip in offensively occasionally, but we need more firepower, especially on the powerplay.

I expect us to be a really good team next year. Dubinsky is another year older and another year wiser, Callahan has shown that he can contribute in all facets of the game, and Gabby should be able to have a bounce back year. Couple that with a couple of good UFA signings and we are a top-5 team in the east
