I judge players based on their compete level in the playoffs. For me, that's 11,27,76 plus Eller and everyone else I could not care less. Guys like MaxPac and Gorges run their mouth but they can't walk the talk. Really mad at Gorges in particular. That's the guy who says rookies should just shut up and listen to his infinite wisdom?

These playoffs (and previous) made two things very clear to me:

(1) PK is a superstar. You can count on him to have a huge game when everything is on the line. He's now the face of the franchise and I hope he gets serious consideration as future captain.

(2) We never replaced Saku and Kovalev as far as having a forward who can score a huge goal in a playoff game. Eventually 11+27 will get there but we should try to acquire a guy like Vanek or similar game breaker. Watch Marian Hossa and see what I'm talking about.

The only silver lining of making the playoffs and losing in such a manner is that it exposes the true character of our players. We have very, very few character players.
