Strange thing is how its always the teams that we should beat that give us fits.

I can't see us beating the Sharkies or the 'Nucks truthfully. It would be very impressive if we did. I'll reserve judgement until we a healthy lineup in Round 1, Game 1. Last night I hope will be a wake up card because getting pounded by a non-playoff team this close to the playoffs is not a good thing. I hope Babs can get the ship steered right.
I'm in agreement with you. What do they need to do to get better? Maybe some size? I don't know. My father-in-law thinks Bertuzzi has to go. Who knows.

Are we cagey veterans playing possum for the playoffs or easy pickins for a younger more aggressive opposition?
Frankly I'm undecided

I'm surprised the latter doesn't get talked about as much. Some of this is Babs getting too creative, a lot of it is injuries, some of it is just... mesh. Have we ever had consistent lines this season? Not really. Here were the two best, though:
Hudler - Datsyuk - Cleary
Franzen - Filppula - Bertuzzi
Put those back together and another line with Zetterberg (Holmstrom + Modano?) and see how things work out in that regard. Alternatively, put Datsyuk and Zetterberg back together (When has this not worked longer than a couple games in a row?) and run the above combos with similar lines, such as Hudler - Filppula - Cleary, Bert - Modano - Franzen.
I think perhaps Babcock has been trying to get a feel for line combos moving forward into the playoffs, but it just feels like he's been trying to use line changes too much to get a spark going for some player or another and chemistry has suffered. If people don't have a spark, just make them sit.
Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.
