Bryz needs to keep his stepped up game going, obviously. His continued strong play will be key to how the team does and go a long way toward justifying that contract. A playoff meltdown by him would be disastrous. A deep run would be nice. Not only in showing that the team took the right approach but getting the kids that experience in the post season play that just gets turned up another notch. Which among the rookies will step it up as JvR did last season? I'm thinking that rookie line of Wellwood, Sean C and Reid could make some noise as the Giroux and Briere lines really get a lion's share of the attention by the other teams. Briere rounding into his typical playoff form would be huge.
