And the other half

Now that the Sabres finished off the pesky Rangers, Buffalo's second test of the playoffs, it's time to turn our attention, and barbs, toward Ottawa as the Northeast Division rivals meet for the Prince of Wales Trophy.

This should be an interesting, physical series. Because the Senators haven't had to work so far these playoffs, it's hard to imagine them being anywhere near ready for the battle-tested Sabres.

Roll, Sabres, roll.

I beg to differ you on this one...I think they have had to work to get the honor of meeting the Sabres...everyone knows that in order to beat the Devils, it is going to take lots of hardwork because of their defense first mindset and beyond that layer you have Marty Broduer to deal with, so I think they have worked and earned the spot they are in. I would like to also point out that over the course of the year, the Sens hold the edge against Buffalo and despite what Barry Melrose has to say, Ottawa is more than the Heatley, Alfredsson and Spezza line. As much as the Rangers worried me, the Sens worry me more and please do not forget the sunshine factor as in "the sunshines on every dogs ass once in a while", so while I root for and believe that Buffalo will advance to the finals, I would not be completely shocked if Ottawa pulled this one off...my prediction Buffalo in Seven in OT

Excellent points. It shows that you have much more respect for Ottawa than I do.

I'm not so sure, though, that New Jersey was a test. The first few games, maybe. But, the Sens haven't played a true must-win game this playoffs.

As always, we'll have to see what happens.

Oh don't get me wrong...i have little or no respect for Ottawa..especially after the Drury incident, but from a breakdown standpoint based on head to head this year, I feel the only true advantage for Buffalo is home ice and Ryan Miller....as good as Emery has been, he himself has yet to face the pressure of a must win or game 7, but respect....nah!
