2-2!You run so good at how awful my lineups are. This is my worst 7-game stretch of the season, by far, lineup-wise.I don't think it gets any better, hypothetically, in rounds 2, 3 or 4, though either, so I don't really think I care.

I'm so pissed I traded you Evgeny Artyukhin for nothing. The guy is going to be a stud and he is on your farm.

Donuts from my guys this afternoon. I really don't like my chances with your Devil guys against Edmonton.

To me that is a donut since he is my 1st OT. The ugly night continues, zeros in the 1st from the Sabres/Rangers game. I am really dreading the Devils game coming up.

Good series, Wayne.I hate excuses, but I can't believe how awful my lineups are in these playoffs. I knew I didn't have Big M depth, but I thought my team was pretty deep. Stafford was supposed to be the bottom of my top end guys, and has just had a very mediocre season, and now he's injured for a while. Moss was supposed to be my better lower-end depth guy, and he's been absolutely pitiful. Guys like Cooke, Asham, Begin have had hot streaks, but they were just FA pickups with very low expectations, and they can't be counted on. When I have to start Asham in several playoff games, you know there's a problem.Hemsky would have been really nice to have, too. Hejduk missing a game or two already in the playoffs as well, sigh.Even my defense, which I thought was adequately deep has been getting exposed for it's lack of depth. My top 5 would be Keith, Yandle, Tyutin, Spacek, Girardi, which I would be comfortable with any 4, at least earlier in the season. Spacek fell off the face of the earth, from last year's totals. Girardi started off on fire and completely disappeared. Those two are basically my 2nd tier of d-men now, and random pick up Huskins has about the same pool PPG as them. Keith was a nice surprised, as he's one of the top 3 d-men in the pool, and Yandle is progressing very nicely. Tyutin as well. After those 5, it's an absolute disaster though, and I've had to use more of my bottom end d-men in this series than at any stretch in the regular season.Not to mention 2 goalie-less nights in the first 5 games, where I think I had 3 all regular season. And that's before even accounting for goaltending already being my weakest position.Sigh. Don't think I can win 2 more, with the lineups I'm icing. Considering Arron Asham and David Moss would see the lineup 4 of 7 games, if it went the distance, bleh.

Congrats Zach...great season. This league is all about timing. Injuries at the wrong time can kill you. And of course Tavares goes about 20 games without a goal and scores last night.

Yeah, lol.The biggest thing was just my lineups in the playoffs. They weren't good enough. They weren't a reflection of the talent on my team. I don't know if that's all luck, though. I could have planned better and had players who played more playoff games, maybe.In order of their pool points per game, which was last calculated just before the playoffs:(In 6 playoff games, each player appeared:)Ilya Kovalchuk - 2 gamesBrad Richards - 3 gamesAles Hemsky - 0 games (injured)Langenbrunner - 2 gamesHejduk - 2 games (injured for 2 more)McDonald - 3 gamesStillman - 4 gamesStafford - 2 games (injured for 1 more)Chimera - 3 gamesCooke - 3 gamesRegin - 2 gamesAsham - 3 gamesMoss - 3 gamesArtyukhin - 1 gameBegin, Talbot, Wallin, Chipchura did not play any games.It's just annoying that I had to go so deep into my reserve type guys for almost every game. Game 1, I had very close to my best lineup, missing only Hejduk and Hemsky out of my top 6 forwards. After that, I was lucky to get 3 of my top 8 guys. Basically, I consider the top 8 there, my go-to guys, except maybe Stafford who has disappointed this season. After that it's a drop off, but I should be fine with one or two of them in a game if necessary.I ended up with a distribution of:Game 1 - 6 / 0Game 2 - 4 / 2Game 3 - 3 / 3Game 4 - 4 / 2Game 5 - 2 / 4Game 6 - 2 / 4And game 7 wouldn't have been much better than game 5 or 6.It doesn't look as bad as I thought, but even then, I'm missing my top end guys the most. Kovy, Richards, Hemsky.Oh well, I will have mostly the same team next season, probably, so we'll see if I get luckier with the playoff scheduling. Or, it could be time to sell Kovalchuk while his contract is still decent and get a big return to make my team a bit deeper, or better set for the future. Time will tell.It's been an incredibly fun first season, though, and I'm glad I got a chance to get into this league.

any chance the AHL is posting their draft results, whenever that may be? I want to compile where everyone was taken in the different leagues.
