I actually really like the Smith prediction. Type of guy who could draw some attention on frustration alone, and he's definitely capable of scoring.

Regarding the Regin/Greening comparison, I wasn't trying to imply there isn't a contrast between the two. I would agree that Regin probably wins out in the skill department. Goes without saying, though, that there have been plenty of examples of lesser "skilled" players developing reputations as playoff performers based purely on style.

Detroit has been (and still is) laced with these types of players. In fact, if you look back at past Stanley Cup winners or teams who have done damage in the playoffs, most of them have an example of it. Anaheim pretty much beat the Sens in 2007 with that damn Pahlsson-R. Neidermayer-Moen line. I digress.

I'll say again though that Zack Smith may turn out to be a nice call by those who said him.

I really think Cowen is a strong candidate.

When he tries and is on his game, he is unstoppable and stopping others.

The Smith line would be absolutely huge. Smith and Condra will go into beast modes.

Someone I think will surprise everyone is Alfredsson. He will have a lights out series.

Foligno. He was one of our best forwards towards the end of our last playoffs.

Smith. He is a competitor, agitator and has a surprisingly decent shot. He doesn't shy away from getting into it with star players (kessel and stamkos both come to mind). My blinders might be on when it comes to him but I really think he has the ability to be an impact player come playoffs.

Three guys I am looking at specifically for the playoffs are Chris Neil, Zack Smith, and Kyle Turris. I think at least 2 of them will really show that they are elevating their game for the post-season.

I am so pumped for the playoffs! I am thirsting for Sens playoff games but I am sure we all have been doing the same.

Playoff is always about neutralizing the oppositions threats.

Always is always will be.

So I see guys like Greening, Condra, Neiler, the KDaug and Winnie and players who could stand up and make impacts for the Sens.

We all know Spezza, Karlsson and Alfy will produce.

I think we will see great playoffs from

Kuba- Karlsson will be a target so I think Kuba will shoulder some of the extra load
Foligno- I just think he will... By all accounts from the local media and even Pierre McGuire... He cares so much and puts a ton of pressure on himself to perform I think he will in the playoffs
Obrien/Smith- The top 2 lines will see the best D pairings and its up to our lower tier guys to really pick up the slack... They both had great playoffs last year as well...
Cowen- Great track record in these situations...

Imagine how this board would react if that goal was scored by Gilroy

I'll predict that Erik Condra scores a key shortie in the 1st round...and like everyone, I'm expecting big production from Kyle Turris.

3 words for you all.

Erik Patrick Condra.

This playoff is going to be a HUGE coming out party for Erin. I have a feeling he's going to score a huge overtime goal in the first round followed by a classic Erk Condra smile/celebration. His elite level stamina is going to be one of the keys of the series...just wait and see.


Discuss.

I like the depth to rise up. Condra, Smith are going to have a monster series. Smith and Neil being physical forces, Condra playing his tail off and finally showing some finish.

Greening + Turris are good bets to show people what they are made of, on the road to the ECF Also Darkhorse pick to Silfverberg if he comes a the begining of the 2nd round.

Smith and Daugavins.

Both had 20 points in 23 playoff games with Bingo last year.

It's a good indicator that they elevate their game at this time of year.

I'd say Cowen or Michalek. Turris seems to be a pick by many here but I'm not too sure how well he can do against a physically imposing team like Boston

The impression I got watching most of the games from the run last year was that Potulny and Daugavins carried that team.

It seems like every important goal was scored by one of those two.

Hadn't thought about him, but definately. Veteran not getting any younger, and didn't come to Ottawa to tutor prospects, it just happened to work out that way. He was sorely missed in the Carolina game. Gonchar isn't flashy but is a key in the back end.

I feel like Carkner will score another important goal. Foligno will do well one of these series.
