I was hoping for not last. Damn, I'm done in the 1st round.

playoff hockey is full of surprises!

get ready to argue for your team, SHOW us what makes it great, against the #2 seed.

the playoff match-ups are another chance to talk about one's drafted line-up.

note to newbies: please refrain from making overall judgements on the match-up threads and instead make an ANALYSIS or SPECIFIC OBSERVATION to illuminate an aspect of the contest.

Unless you are commenting on your own series and why you should win.

of course. the ONLY people who should have made up their minds already as to which team wins a series is the GMs of the teams!

everyone else needs to keep an open mind and look at specific aspects of the match-ups, ask questions, ponder dynamics, discuss historical playoff experience of players and kinds of styles, etc.

we should see upsets, as playoff hockey and regular season hockey are different and hopefully GMs keep that in mind

I've been wondering, how are these games being refereed? Are they in the old days where you could get away with murder, pre-lockout 90s deadpuck, post-lockout, what? This could play a huge factor in the game.

I may be mistaken, but I believe it is a combination of the three, per se. Not realistic obviously, but it is my understanding that anybody who used tatics that were relative to their era will still be able to use that same strategy, such as Shore's over-the-edge physicality or Hatcher's crease clearing ability. While both guys may not be able to use those tatics with today's rules, since the draft is all era-relative, I think it is the same for refereeing.

Someone who knows for sure like VanI or seventies can correct me if I'm wrong.

Indeed. At least for home games.

I don't know that there is a 100% right way to look at it.

Either way, i think relativity is the key. So, either what you said, or we assume today's rules are being applied, and you "adjust" the mannerisms of the players into a modern context.

Kuddos to Nalyd Psycho for being the first one to draft Marleau in the ATD, right when he became deserving of it, as an extra skater. That's about where he should be at this point, given he is a good utility forward in an all-time context: he has the wheels and hockey sense to skate with the best, is no worse than average on a 2nd pp unit if needed given his incredible soft hands around the net, and he was 3rd in ice time among Team Canada forwards in the 2010 Olympic gold medal tourney with his pp and pk time in addition to regular line duty, scoring a decent 3 goals, 7 points. His top-3 in NHL goal season plus his Olympics catapults him from a decent MLD 2nd line starter to half-decent ATD extra skater.
