At this point I'm hoping we fall back to 6th place in the conference and face someone like Carolina in the first round. I wouldn't want to go up against Philly or some other hungry team with nothing to lose, in the state we're in right now. We need a first round we can win with talent first because that's what we have.
I'll say it again, Bryan Murray has a problem of his own. He should've stepped in as the GM and resolved the goalie situation two months ago. Pick one and trade the other. He could've made a good trade with Gerber in December-January, and stuck with Emery to go to the playoffs. One of the two was the outsider and it wasn't Emery. I explain a lot of his antics to a very understandable bad mood about being treated as a backup after taking the team to the final. It doesn't excuse his sour grapes but then again what message is the team sending, signing him to a big contract then treating him as they did.
