The Daily Wrap Up - Monday March 23, 2009

 I wonder what Brian Murray has in store for Alexandre Picard, Brenden Bell and Jason Smith going forward.  Clearly the 5 other defensive spots are taken and all that is left is one spot between them.  Unless Jason Smith is traded, he will take that spot, but is there a market available for his services anymore?  Or will Murray let Bell walk for nothing and let Picard sit in the press box next year?  It's a bit of problem, but stocking up on middling defenseman will do it to you.  The simplest solution is to sign Jay Bouwmeester then rid the team of 'c' level defenseman.  Get to it Brian.

Playoff Watch - It's time that we all faced facts and allowed for the possibility of a playoff berth.

7. NY Rangers 73 84
8. Montreal 72 81
9. Florida 72 80
10. Buffalo 72 76
11. Ottawa 72 74
12. Toronto 73 73

Buffalo if easy enough to catch, but the combination of Montreal and Florida makes the situation so difficult.  With only 10 games left, we will find out if Florida made the right move in keeping Bouwmeester and if Montreal really will self-destruct.  My thoughts are no, and yes.
