Everyone go to playoffschallenge.nhl.com and signup. I made a league called HFBoards. I think it would be fun to see how well we can pick the winners 8-)

Good for Anders to take his exams, the kid has got his priorities straight.

So I guess we're not losing a year off of his ELC this year. He hasn't played the requisite games to burn the first year. I can't say I hate that.

Clearly, he's trade bait.

Am I reading this wrong or are all signs pointing to Reasoner playing? If so, I think that's a big mistake. We have played so much better without him.

Maybe intimidation would work, but I suspect the best chance would be to play an amazing transition game, use the mobility/puck-moving of our d-men and keep the play out of our defensive zone as much as possible. Conversely, the Isles will need to forecheck guys like Murray and Orpik (and hopefully Engellund) and maintain O zone pressure and get chances off mistakes. I think that's kind of how the Devs frustrated the Flyers last year in the POs.

The other issue with trying to intimidate is that the refs will be calling the series closely to protect Sid. But that can play to the Isles' advantage for their smaller d-men.
