Hasn't been playing well lately.... but I'll say Zibanejad.

At least he'll have to be.

Latendresse shows flashes of what kind of impact a big power-forward can have on this team. His ability to protect the puck in tight while wearing defenders like a second jersey is pretty remarkable. He's also got very good hands and is smart enough to make high percentage plays for himself and his linemates. I think the guy gets too much grief considering his recent injury history and the fact that he's probably still not anywhere close to 100% in health or game-shape.

Latendresse can't skate. I doubt very much he'll be the Sens' 2nd best player in a series vs the Habs.

I'm going to say Turris. He's the #1 guy in Spezza's absence, that's a huge role, especially in the playoffs.

I thought I remembered Uncle Dennis talking about Alfie having 150 pts against the Habs in his career or something
Best place for that is Yahoo. Go to the player and then click on splits.

Anderson has to be one of them. If we stand a chance, it's because he's making saves against Montreal's PP. Besides him, I could see Zibby and Silfv have a coming out party.

Alfredsson. The pressure will be loaded on Alfie once again.

If not him, Smith. We need him to find his clutch scoring

Zibby/Turris.

While Spezza is out, this has to be the X factor for me. Spezza managed to score for us in the playoffs while not even playing his 'best'. We'll see if Zibby or Turris can put up some points.

Turris Zibanejad and Smith - particularly Smith and Turris really need to show up. They're not against a big tough defense, they're not against big tough players - they need to be able to pressure and score.

Without Spezza - Turris and Smith need to carry the load at center if we hope to make it out of round 1.

Neil - to give the team energy and the big guys motivation to hit/fight

Alfy - to Keep Everyone Calm & Alfredss On

Gryba - Cant get caught, small mistakes have to be cleaned up

Calder Line - Find that Golden medal, SEL champ MVP, and AHL Champ MVP like presence


IF these players lead by example the rest will follow as suit. Go Sens Go!

My money is on Pageau. While their key D is stacked against our best players Pageau is gonna cause some havoc.

Regarding earlier discussion about Latendresse, I think folks around here wouldn't give him so much credit if he were on another team. It just seems like homerism to covet what is basically a street hockey all-star who can balance himself on skates really well.

Agree with Tremblay31 - Michalek

Size, speed, net drive, goal-scoring track record. Doesn't really have a history of strong playoff performances... time to break that trend?

If we want to win the series Karlsson and Anderson have to come to play therefore they are not our x-factor.

The real x-factor is:

Zibanejad and Silfverberg.

Who remembers last year when Silfverberg came in and had that dominant 3 minute shift in game 7 against NYR in the playoffs. He steps it up big time in clutch moments.

Zibanejad will go ham like he usually does hopefully. To exploit their defense and quick speed Zibanejad will be able to retaliate with speed of his own but he has to punish people in the process to give him the upper hand which I believe he will.

If Michalek can score we'll be fine.

Anderson is the obvious choice but I took JGP as the last pick in my hockey pool so I will say him!

Alfie - The captain will step up like he has so many times before and lead the way. I feel like he saved some juice in the tank for the playoffs and considering this could be his last run, he is going to go all out. There's times we could see 07 Alfie. He's also got fantastic numbers for his career in the playoffs and against the Habs.

Turris - He's got a huge spotlight on him. I think he learned a lot last year and with this being his third playoff run, it's time we see him truly break out and go point per game or close to it. He's going to get a lot of ice-time and be put in situations that he can succeed in and I think he relishes that opportunity.

TSN/CBC were so busy raving about the Habs' rookies, they forgot about how huge ours have been. The Kid line was big tonight.
