It really irks me that such a meh-Ottawa team is going to the conference finals. With that said, Erik Karlsson is definitely establishing himself as the best defenceman of his generation. And quite frankly it's not even that close really. I think in 20 years when we look back at his career anyone who disagreed with that now will probably pretend they never did.

Why did the Leafs draft Schenn at #5 again while Karlsson went like 15th?

Reading some old Erik Karlsson scouting reports is funny. Offensively very skilled, good hockey sense, power play quarterback. Had a big coming out party at the U18 tournament before the draft. But too small and needs to work on his defensive game and HOLY HELL THAT SOUNDS LIKE ERIK BRANNSTROM!

And like dozens of other defencemen every year, sure.

It's so annoying to be obliged to admit them to my consciousness at this time of year.  Luckily, I think their inherent and ineradicable dietcokeness will catch up with them next round.

Final score:  Senators 4  NYRangers 2  Ottawa wins series 4 games to 2.

Those pesky Senators. They don't seem to know when to quit.  Especially Erik Karlsson, the workhorse that he is.  Without him or his leadership, it's doubtful the Sens would be where they are now.

Good luck to them the rest of the way!

There's no reason one of Pitts/Washington shouldn't make the finals over freaking Ottawa.... They really need to fix the damn playoff format...
