1) Playoffs MVP? Joni Pitkanen, he played big for us almost every night even with the large amount of minutes he got. Plus we don't get out of the first round without him... or Jokinen.

The one play that sticks out in my mind in all the 18 playoff games is Tim Gleason diving on the ice, stretching his stick out to keep the puck in the zone, sliding up to his knees and just before the defender could knock the puck away, made the perfect pass to Pitkanen who fed Jussi for the tying goal in game 7 of the first round. Yeah, Joni found Jussi wide open for the goal, but without the all out effort by Timmy, we are going home. And he's as close as we get to having a lock-down D-man. IMNSHO :D

4) Probably played his way out of a contract?

Babchuk. Sure, he ripped it up late in the season, but you can throw those stats out the window when it matters the most. Every team easily adjusted to this, saw it coming, and shut it down. I don't know who's worse defensively... him or Pitkanen.

Joni Pitkanen bad defensively? He was our best Defenseman against Pittsburgh.

6) Biggest disappointment?

Erik Cole. I'm also going to go with Pitkanen. Sure, I don't expect him to be make great defensive plays, but honestly, this guy drove me nuts. Aside from setting up Jokinen in game 7, nothing great comes to mind.

I'm still not seeing how you see Joni Pitkanen being a disappointment.
