Ryan Miller is much less likely to have a .975 save percentage over a series than he is over one game.

If however we do run into a hot goalie in the playoffs, understand that it was a fluke and move on. Don't do what Washington did after Halak, from which they blew up their team and wasted three years because the Habs had a flukey win over Washington.

Carter would look damn good right now on line 1. Oh well, PG didn't see the problem, I guess.

You think we're fine next year with:

Pleks: 25 goals

DD: 16 goals

Eller: 16 goals

Gally: 16 goals, (30 in 2 more years)?

We are not fine at centre at all. We need a goal scoring centre. Said it a thousand times before, and I'm saying it again.
Plekanec has 12 goals over 31 games (32 goal pace) in spite of frequently starting in the defensive zone against elite opposition.

Eller and DD need to step it up.

Gally gets a pass because he's 19.
