HOWEVER, the good news is that this underlines the fact that Scott's return is a sure-thing, which makes me happy.

It does?

The problem is the Martin-Hale pairing. I don't think Albelin is a good fill-in because Martin has proven he's the NHL player, and that line will get killed on the forecheck. If Lou doesn't make a move, it says he trusts Sean Brown. I don't.

I bet the people that are saying we're out in the first are one of the first to buy a championship hat when we win the cup again.

There is no way Lou sits idly by if Stevens is not coming back.

Hrm. Odd that Hill didn't get traded. I guess that means that the two teams he wanted to go to didn't even offer an 8th round pick.

Hill was going to be traded but the Leafs wanted him to sign a contract extension first but he would not do that.

The dust still hasn't settled. Deals are still being processed. But overall, going into the playoffs with the BEST DEFENSE in the league is fine by me.

Hale and Martin have won College Championships and are still better than every other #3 pairing going into the playoffs.

I am not concerned. Once Kozlov gets healthy and Scotty gets back on the ice all these silly comments will be long forgotten.

We have the best defense in the league and Defense wins championships!

Our defense has been porous lately. Our GAA is way up from where it was earlier this season when we were shutting teams out every other game. Whether Stevens comes back or not our defense is in trouble.

Let's say we get the 6 seed. That means we play either Toronto or Philly in the first round. I do not think we can beat either of those teams 4 of 7 in round 1 especially of Primeau and Roenick come back for Philly.

As long as Burns sticks to matching lines the best he can we are going to be right up there with the rest of the contenders.

Here's the truth Don: they WERE better than us. All three. But the Senators didn't have the sack to beat us and fell asleep for the first four games. By the time they woke up, the series was almost over.

We got all the right matchups in the playoffs last year. I don't think we win if we had to play Philadelphia and Ottawa. But that's a whole other discussion.
