Only a few hours to go now until game 2 starts. I am pumped.
Lots to expect out of this one. Will the Sens be able to fight back or will the Ducks just keep on hitting everyone and wear down the Sens?
I really think that this is the Ducks chance. They have a great opportunity to go ahead 2-0 in the series and forcing the Sens to win 4 in 5 games. They have a lot of strong guys that are going to come out hitting and I think May put some fear into Neil the other night. It should be a great watch.
On the Leafs front, I am torn on the Sundin issue. Should he stay or should he go? After everything that I have read, it's pretty clear he wants to stay in Toronto for a couple more years then call it a career. But at what price? To me, that is the biggest issue.
Do they give him the 2-year $10 mil contract that we keep hearing about and then just deal with the same team as last year or could something different happen. Is it possible for Mats to take a pay cut for the good of the team? Lots of reports say the Leafs will make some moves and with them signing another d-man, could they be looking to move McCabe or Kubina to free up some cap space? It's hard to tell. If they want to go after a Ryan Smyth or high profile UFA, they are going to need some money.
On a non-hockey note, looks like Kobe wants a trade. Now that's a hard contract to move.
