Nicklas Backstrom did miss regular season games due to a fractured thumb. But according to both McPhee and Boudreau, the center was healthy in the playoffs. Backstrom had two assists in nine playoff games.

It's time to sign Marleau.

Assuming he's there July 1st.  In fact, I wouldn't be opposed to trading for his rights (Steckel?)  Ok I digress - And not only that, but sign him to one of those bogus deals that teams like...

We could have used him when BB was getting over-matched.

...having Evgeni Malkin as a teammate -- even the moody, now-you-see-him-now-you-don't version this season -- beats the hell out of watching Semin and Green melt into the ice in a pressure situation.

National Post, from today's clips I don't know if there's a point to it, but it made me chuckle in a sad way.

Let's Drop the Puck...on Sunday afternoon?

Forgive me for beating a dead horse, but again I must ask - who is the genius at NBC making these decisions?  A great San Jose / Chicago series is going to start on a Sunday afternoon in May.  You...

I believe our hockey IQ seemed low this series and we didn’t adjust well on the ice to the new schemes coming our way.

The Boss. I think it's fair to say the coaching staff is on notice.

The Capitals will spend a long time washing the stain of this loss out of their psyches. In less than a week, they managed to forge a brand-new reputation for themselves -- a wildly skilled team that somehow still lacks the gut-check gene.

Burnside - and get used to hearing that a lot.

Ken Campbell of The Hockey News reported Rob Blake was the competition committee's deciding vote against going to four-on-four OT in the playoffs. Blake deserves a spot in the Hall of Fame just for that.

March 1. DirecTV. Versus. WTF.

At this point, does anyone really think this is not going to end with us DTV subs missing playoff games? At least I have the most accessible owner in pro sports to help state my case, but I was a...

"I don't know. It is such a hard thing," coach Bruce Boudreau said when asked what Alzner needs to do to become a permanent fixture on his roster. "I want to see him be really consistent. The last time he was up here, it was the consistency. I thought he had three really good games, a mediocre game and a not-so-good game. If he could keep that consistency like the very first time he played when he was up here [Nov. 25 against Buffalo], he would be hard to send down."

So what's the (best) deal on getting some tickets?

Great to have the Rink Ticket Exchange, but it's looking a little lean for the game I want to go to - Buf 11/25. Anybody used the Ticket-Raper exchange?  I was hoping to sit in the lower (blue)...

I'm okay with this only because to me it didn't seem like it was making that much of a difference. But according to that article defensemen are taking too many hits because of times the goalie can't play the puck? Not sure I follow that, and wouldn't that be good for scoring if it were true?

I know it's only the first game...

but how would another 3 years @ $5,625,000 per of this be tasting right now?? :-)

"Boston just introduced the players," Boudreau said. "They didn't show any banners, did they? Their goals are bigger than division championships. I think ours are bigger than division championships. We raised the banner last year. There's no sense in raising it again."

Some interesting propositions

The Caps points total is tied with the Wings for highest on the board.  Not quite the bargain it was last year at 94.

"It's hard for me to congratulate somebody after you just lose to them," he said. "I'm a winner. It's not being a poor sport or anything like that. If somebody beats you up, you're not going to congratulate them. That doesn't make sense to me. I'm a competitor. That's what I do. It doesn't make sense for me to go over and shake somebody's hand."

LeBron James, in essence summing up the difference between the NBA and NHL.
