I think it is a wash flipping Kesler and Roy. Perhaps Roy is a better set up man and/or Kesler is a better checker?

Looks like AV is trying to establish that checking line, which means Kesler will get a lot of ice time. He has also played very well with Higgins int he past. Just find a balance so we can roll three good lines and have a decent 4th line that can bring some energy and play some meaningful minutes.

Pfft. We beat these guys in 5 a couple of years ago. Are we that much worse or are they that much better? I'd say neither.

No need to worry.


This series is guaranteed to start well.

Oh I get the population base and the ratings and all of that shit but it's my tax dollars that go into that corporation too and last time I checked the dollar out west is on par with the dollar back east.

A disgrace, a real disgrace. And they wonder why the East is hated everywhere but the East.


Now that Benjo has clarified things, I don't see it that way.

Population of Quebec and Ottawa: 9m
Population of the rest of Ontario: 12m
Population of BC: 4.5m

If CBC could only pick two series then there's no way they could do other than they did. This hasn't come up before because usually two of the three Eastern teams stink every year, but it's a new world. Yes, the dollar is at par out west, but there are more of them here.

Vlasic/Braun are SJ's shutdown pair. They go up against the Sedins I assume.

That leaves Boyle/Irwin and Hannan/Stuart for Kesler and Roy.

McLellan still matches lines mainly while Vigneault is still prone to zone starts over line matching. Boyle also gets paired with Thornton's line alot.

So it will be interesting to see who Kesler and Roy end up matched with (home and road) and to what degree they can exploit the very slow pair of Stuart/Hannan.

Does that mean Booth as well??

Or is he just not included any longer?

Apparently ticket sales are not too good for round 1 (will I be sued for saying this?)

Hubby has had two calls from business associates and we now have tickets for home games 2 and 5. When did that ever happen before? To make it weirder, I am not happy to be lower bowl. Will they kick me out for going Southsider in club seats?

Looking at the lineups .
ok .. Sedin line no changes .. ( time for these 2 200 lb swedes to look after themselves ? )
Kesler line is going to be the "tough" line All 3 can go to the net ..
3rd is a good 2 way line.. Raymond the weak link. Hansen will again up his play in the playoffs..
4th.. nothing to say.. Ebbet ?? doubt this line gets much time.
Glad to see Ballard out .. :)
g oing to be interesting watching Torres against the Kesler line ( damm wish we had kept him )
D pairings look ok.. but of course the Juggler will change all lines and D pairings to suit the game..

Schneider says he is ready to play, but coaches are being a bit more cautious saying Schneids still needs to speak with medical staff. AV says "We'll see how Schneider is tomorrow. No decision yet.".
