The thing I am hopeful for this year compared to last year, is that we don`t run out of gas. Last year Konrad played a ton whereas this year he has shared those minutes more and missed a month (rest) as well. The forward lines are 4 deep and I can`t see them wearing down in a playoff run. We have more size with grit this year too, with Fournier/MacAuley being in the mix. And our 2nd line HAS to be more consistent than last year, as they have been all year.

On paper, and in the standings, nobody SHOULD beat us in a best of 7... but I will never be that confident lol. Playoffs are a different story. I do expect us to breeze through to round 3 though. Teams will have to be very defensively aware of us every single shift. There is really no easy line to play against.

Oh don't get me wrong. I think we're the team to beat. We've had a fantastic season and have been consistent with our overall play where other teams have had hot and cold spells. I'm just playing the devil's advocate and suggesting there was an area where we can improve. I'll play it again by suggesting that if we have to play a team like PEI or Val D'or in the 2nd round, it won't be a cakewalk.

The debacle that was 2009-2011 has really made me appreciate last year and this year that much more.
