You don't want to play a bruising team in the first round.
Well one could say that I'd rather have players injured in the 1st and 2nd round and healed for the last two, rather than the other way around. Of course those injuries do jeopardize your chances of getting through those rounds in the first place

Reason: intra not cross :P
Check out Stammer's GWG at the boxscore. Look at that PP set-up: the Bolts recognize Ward is playing too far out while the Canes' PK only has one man down low. So as Purcell controls the puck near the point, Marty loads up at the right slot while Stamkos sneaks down low at the other side.
Ward is ****ed because if he goes either way, Purcell will just pass it the opposite way because the PK is giving poor coverage. Ward winds up not moving to either side and Stamkos is given tons of net to shoot at, and he makes no mistake when he receives the puck.
I thought this set-up was sick, so yeah. I'm missing the Sedin magic...
