  1. Do we know which players Dallas will send down for the playoffs? Just Vincour and Lukowich?

    Thanks!

  2. This could be one heck of a squad to contend with in the playoffs. Hopefully our guys will all be healthy for the run!

  3. hey stephen great coverage as always!...i think OKC with their reinforcements from Edmonton might be the team to beat although Houston will be quite tough with MIN not making it...I am actually ok with MILW being our first draw we did well against them this year and with NASH mking the playoffs no reinforcements for them right now. WBS at 58-22 regular season might be the overall team to beat and I would love to see TEX play them in the cup round again. I would prefer them not "backing" into the playoffs with back to back shutouts..(i thought the okc game was worse than most ppl did) but hopefully they go far again this year
