For all we know the dressing room may have been divided before the playoffs started. I believe largely based on his mid season run, was Neuvy named the playoff starter. It wasnt like he was dominating at years end, or at least not as I remember it. A lot of that mid season run was... team defense. Not to take away from Neuvy's solid year, but I for one do not think he is heads and shoulders above Varly and Holtby, nor do I think he will be.

The canadians may have had their preference as well. Time to eat crow, I had said Holtby would get a game in April back in November. Bruce would have shocked Tampa and Canada good with that move. Added some drama to an otherwise almost predictable game 4 failure.

About Backstrom, I think he gets a get outta jail free card as he has most of his career. He is Ovi's bud. Some players get singled out, others dont.
