Not confirmed. Totally the opposite, in fact.

Now, whether FSN carries the same feed as NBCSN or not is an entirely different question.

This is the first time we've made the playoffs since I've been a 'real' fan. And it's surreal to me really at this moment, I just want us to play some good games.

Also the consumption of Red Bull will dramatically increase in our household during the playoffs.

That's pretty close to my prediction too. I'm just happy we made the playoffs. Anything beyond that is just a bonus, although I hope they put up a respectable fight against the Blackhawks.

Koivu’s skill level does not place him in an elite category, and is not his greatest strength. His work ethic, drive and ability to defend is what sets him apart, Yeo said. Plus his devotion to his team.

“For him, team dinners and team meals, it’s an insult if you don’t come,” Brunette said. “He wants everybody together. If we’re going somewhere to do anything, he wants the whole group.”

In a lot of ways, it’s why Koivu and former teammate Martin Havlat never meshed. Havlat didn’t take part in many team activities.

“[Havlat] probably wasn’t completely in tune to the team as Mikko would have liked,” Brunette said. “It was an adjustment period and it didn’t go all that well, I guess you can say. … I don’t know if [Havlat] completely bought in to our group.”

That bothered Koivu.

“He is Captain Serious, no question,” Yeo said. “But behind the scenes, he is a joker that is a great teammate, loved by his teammates and loves to have fun when he comes to the rink and isn’t afraid to dish it out.”
Strange....I kinda had that same feeling about Havlat too. He was disconnected by choice. Bet Koivu was flashing some angry glances at Havlat after Walsh started speaking for his client on twitter.

Im just happy this team will be able to get at least 4 hours of playoff experience.

Lets be honest, it doesnt look good.

Would you rather this team get swept in the first round as the 8th seed?(No1sRndtPick)
or
Would you rather have taken 9th place? Still no first round pick?

This team has almost zero high end playoff experience beyond zach and ryan. Yes cullen won a cup but that was ages ago.. Mikko will be a 3rd liner before this team is a contender

That's one good thing.

God I hope we come out and punch the Hawks in the mouth. They have been riding high all year. That team in unstoppable when their confidence is up. But they also are the same team that goes through the motions if they are mentally checked out.

Great article overall. Pretty much says everything I've been saying here for the last few months.

As for Havlat, it usually takes two to tango if you don't get along with someone, but if anybody is to blame here, it's not Mikko. He has a certain way of doing things and if Havlat had really wanted to be a part of this team, he would've taken part in the team activities and really made an effort to belong. Maybe he didn't like that they were "mandatory", but so what? This is the way things are done around here and honestly, it's not that much to ask for. If you're not willing to commit to your team enough to go and have dinner with them every once in a while or whatever, then maybe you're better off someplace else.

Wow, that was a great article. Really illuminated the issues with Havlat. And really shows what kind of stuff Koivu does as a leader that we can't see.

This was Koivu's second time playing all games of the regular season in his NHL career, last time being five years ago. Granted, he did have two season when he missed only 2 and 3 games but still, pretty interesting.

Not good news, but also doesn't mean he's out tonight. Suter didn't take the morning skate that one game and he was in the line-up.

I'm betting Pommer isn't playing tonight though.

So, what would be a successful series for you guys? This is assuming that we lose the series because obviously winning in any fashion would be a success. However, would losing in 4, 5, 6, or 7 do anything for you?

I'd say that if they are in most of the games, I will be satisfied. However, if they get swept and are out of every game, then I'd say it hard to declare this season a success.
