As for "devastating concussion" ... He was back in the stands of a louder-than-hell arena next game and was on the plane by Game 7. I don't know where you stood on the Pacioretty-at-the-movies story, but that's the exact situation. He was concussed, but it isn't 'devastating.'

And oddly enough, you really think that odds are we win the division?! Boston and even Buffalo have arguably passed us up the NE Division chart.
Its a three team race that can go to any of the three but Montreal has the best defensive group thanks to the Markov-Subban combination, probably the second best goaltending, and I take Montreal's forwards as basically equivalent to the other two, maybe better in a good year.

Boston had everything break right for them last year except Savard's injury which ended up saving them from cap-hell. Buffalo made some flashy additions but I think both Leino and Ehrhoff were passengers on their last teams. Leino was the third man on a third line that got super soft minutes in Philadelphia. I honestly think he's a downgrade on Connolly. Ehrhoff was just the defenseman that played with the Sedins, he also got to play most of the game in the offensive zone. They're both decent players, but got severely over-hyped.
