I don't get this soft as a sponge talk either. How can the Thrashers be both goons and soft? How on earth does Stortini get knocked over and Pisani get knocked out from a sponge?

Do you have the last two SC champs in your division?

Feel free to keep calling the SE the weakest division in hockey...that fancy Cup in the Hockey Hall of Fame would disagree with you.

Question for Thrasher fans.

What's the deal with Jim Slater, he seemed to show some skill tonight, is he a player?

301 - SE
326 - NE
296 - ATL
306 - CEN
312 - NW
312 - PAC

Points by division. Sorry, 2nd weakest.

Oh, and if you look at goals for by goals against differential, the SE is by far the weakest (Only Tampa bay has it's head above the water at a measly +3)

So the Leafs weren't tough?

News to me. I remember the team I watched every night being pretty damn tough. I remember Tie Domi knocking guys senseless, actually I remember a lot of toughness in the Leafs over the past decade.

Domi, Tucker, Roberts....toss in Marchment who was there for a little bit.

To be honest, I have no idea what you are talking about. The Leafs spent the last decade attempting to thug their way through the playoffs. Do you even remember how the Sens were called soft everytime they lost to the Leafs....or when Domi sucker punched Neids?

Again, this isn't the 70's. Toughness is a vastly overrated commodity come playoff time.

The last time I checked, 3/5 SE teams were ahead of Edmonton in points

These are very valid and well thought out arguments, but I expect Tampa, Carolina, or Atlanta to be more of a challenge in the playoffs than Montreal, Pittsburgh, or Ottawa.

I see Buffalo as vulnerable right now, and New Jersey as the team to beat in the East.

We can't help it that
1.) Washington and Florida are terrible
2.) There is quite a bit of parity in the East

Take a look at the GF, the SE is the home of the goal scorer.

I could care less about where we are in February. The last two SC champs have come from this division, I can't see how anyone can question the toughness of the SE.

That totally debunks my assertion that the SE is the 2nd weakest division based on total points.

Domi wasn't tough, he was a crap disturber. Tucker? you have to be kidding. He's a dirty player. And Roberts.....you must be drunk.

TEAM TOUGHNESS

You don't get it. Blocking shots, do what you have to do. Horcoff blocked a shot in the last second in a game with his face.

There is a reason why we made it to the finals last year.

And what does that matter? Good teams can lose games, bad teams cant win games. The SE has 4 teams that can be called at least decent, and one downright horrible team (The Panthers). If the Panthers had a record more like Tampa's (Which is by no means a good record), the division would be one of the strongest by your theory.

Horcroff also took a foolish 4 minute penalty today.

Correct me if I am wrong, but didn't you guys run into a whole heap of backup goalies in the playoffs last year.....you also had some pretty big dude wearing #44 on the blueline.

I'm probably going to offend some people but after watching Atlanta tonight its pretty obvious that your team has no depth and if you guys want to make a run in the playoffs a few moves would need to be made. After Kovalchuk, Hossa and Mellanby who else do you guys consider to be offensive threats?

Please enlighten us on who these backup goalies were?
