    I am not exactly optimistic about the CBJ getting out of this series. I was after the first three games, but now that it is back to being tied after four, not to mention the inexcusable performance in game four, I don't see the CBJ winning two of the next three vs a Washington team that has figured out how to shut the Jackets down. We'll see what happens today. If the CBJ does not get out of the first round (again), might be time to retool this team, and by that, I mean make some changes, both players and possibly assistant coaches. I don't think they need to gut the team and start over, but it's fairly obvious that what they have been doing has not been working, at least when it comes to getting out of the first round.

    Haha, yeah, I obviously wasn't counting, at least not correctly!

    My understanding is that thereís not much retooling they can do due to some of the big contracts and no move clauses being on old crusty underperforming vets, so I think they have to win with what they have, but I am no expert on the NHL.

    We will see. Some of my optimism is because itís what I want to see, but I also donít see Washington winning four straight, so theyíll need a game 7 and Washington is terrible at game 7s right? Maybe Holtby implodes, or Wilson takes enough dumb penalties....

    Between Panarin, Jones, and Werenski and maybe something timely out of the other guys Iím hoping thatís enough offense to get us through, but itís not going to be easy. But letís hope!
