Timmo - OK, that's a worry, his back pain isn't new, and will not get better with age. But Bryz will be just fine. Once the initial swelling goes down, it's just pain, and he played a whole game with it at it's worst. They can give him a shot, he'll be OK. And if not, this would be teh first time since early in his rookie eyar that Bob wa the man. Not coincidently, that's when he was the budding superstar.
Good for Jagr! That's a leader! Unlike last year's "What - me worry?" leadership, he's pretty clearly telling them playtime is OVER, there's work to be done now.
He's right, the recent play has been masked by some wins. If they don't pick it up, they'll go out in the first round against the Pens. If they do, they may still go out in the first round against the Pens. It is a very young rebuilding team playing the talent laden hottest team in hockey. A cup would be nice, but I'm prepared for lessons learned for next year, and many after that.
