If Carlsson didn't have experience playing against grown men in the Swedish Elite League, I'd be more nervous about this. Not surprised by Harrington in the lineup. Guy dumped by the opponent that has something to prove.

From what we've seen of Carlsson, I think he and Nuti are about equal in terms of their puck movement. I gotta think that it's his size and poise (i.e. not pooping his pants when pressured with the puck) is what set him apart over the last two games.

I'm also a little surprised with playing Carlsson. Harrington is capable. I guess Torts feels comfortable with Carlsson so we shall see.

Agreed, I'm nervous about Carlsson on the blueline for game 1. 2 game warm up and a few games in Cleveland seems too risky to me when we have Nuti playing on the 3rd pairing all season. But I do like Harrington playing against his old team.

Whether its Carlsson or Nuti I trust the coaches know what they're doing. Now if it backfires, we'll deal with it if it comes to that.. obviously they feel Carlsson betters the team in some way.

I'm fine with Carlsson playing on the 3rd pairing over Nutivaara.. We all came to know Nutivaara's limits this season as did the Jacket's (hence the occasional healthy scratches). Like mentioned- Carlsson provides that first pass outlet like Nutivaara, but is also a little bigger defensively. I appreciate Nutivaara's transition game and how he was willing to put the puck on net (despite the rather weak shot), but I just don't feel too confident with him in a battle along the boards, hemmed into the defensive zone..

Yes, Carlsson has just now played a couple AHL and NHL games.. But, he has played professional hockey in Sweden and been apart of the WJC the last couple seasons too. See what he provides this game.. I'm actually a bit surprised that Quincey is sitting this game as well (but he's had a bad last week or two and we could see his speed was gone) Against the Penguins, that could be very troublesome.

See what Carlsson and Harrington bring game 1.

Go Jackets!!!

Luckily I'll probably have Sportsnet as an option too, so I'll see who they have on. If not, probably Jeff & Jody. Doc's voice is like nails on chalkboard to me. Pierre is okay but gets too creepy around Pens' players. I'm not sure if even Kris Letang's parents call his Kristopher.

Now the real question is if the larger networks have brought their own camera crews, or do we still need to suffer through the **** show that is Root Sports' main camera.

Not a fan of Q sitting (if true). While not good the last 4-5 games, he was a nice surprise after the acquisition and would like his experience with the rookie du jour.

I'm feeling very zen right now and this could change in a few hours, but I'm feeling like win or lose this is farther than we thought we'd be and the crappy draw against Pittsburgh is actually a result of playing too well during the regular season and not something we earned by squeaking in. This is gravy already. Whatever happens happens, but we get to watch the Jackets in the playoffs. October me would've been thrilled.

Expectations for serious contention can begin with October Me in 5 months.

Definitely not a big fan of Jeff... but I do like what Jody brings to the announcers team. With that said I don't feel loyal if I suddenly jump to Doc/Pierre.

***PLUS, I have a feeling Doc/Pierre will have a Penguins tilt that I may not be able to handle..
