1/21, including 0/3 in the first period yesterday. If that power play goes even 4 or 5/21, a reasonable rate, we're likely looking at game 7, if not an outright series win. Our PP absolutely did play a major role in the series loss. We counted too much on Tootoo\Smithson\Halischuk\Spaling to continue contributing offensively. That's nice when you get it, but it's not something you should build your team counting on.

Maybe a healthy Lombardi, if such a thing exists, answers the question...but...with a career high of 52 points, is that the case?

Will be interesting to see what happens. Even with raises to Weber and Kostitsyn, between the extra playoff revenue, our cut of the TV deal, and the midpoint going up to around 55 or 56 million, we should have *more* than enough room to add, if so inclined.
nope, and that was a total waste of a signing from the get go, no insurance and no cap relief if he got hurt ... another one of Poile's genius moves
