It would also be a point of pride when we get in and the debbies don't - can be looked at either way. As for Torts, I doubt that missing the playoffs vs. getting shellacked by the Pens in the first round in a shortened season is going to dictate whether or not he keeps his job. Lastly, we HAVE beaten the Pens before - personally I'd rather face them in the first round than MTL, who we can never seem to solve. Not saying we have a great chance at beating the Pens in the first round, but theoretically it COULD happen.
