So with Round 2 of the Stanley Cup playoffs having begun, many people wonder what the teams who were eliminated are up to. Well, guess what, we here at Down Goes Spezza know what's going on.
For instance some players/teams/coaches have big plans for the offseason. So, for your benefit, here are the big offseason plans of those eliminated in the first round.
Chris Durno: Now can find a way to end up on the Maple Leafs so Down Goes Brown’s Durno dreams can be complete.
Phoenix Coyotes: Are now free to decide where they should move to.
Ilya Kovalchuk: Has plenty of time to mull over the cost/benefit analysis of playing in the KHL
Martin Brodeur: Might actually have time to engage in an offseason conditioning plan, this is helped by the fact that Kyle Wellwood is still playing and therefore Brodeur doesn't have a bueffet buddy. Wait, that means Brodeur is alone in the all you can eat line...
Ottawa Senators: Have plenty of time to keep an eye out for coaches in need of a job for the invariable firing of Cory Clouston 3 weeks into next season, to help them, both John Stevens and Rick Tocchet are available. In related news, whichever guy doesn’t get hired can be the coach 10 weeks into next season when the Senators change coaches again.
Jose Theodore/Peter Budaj: Can be well rested for next year when one becomes the next Flyers starting goalie. By the way guys, the position is cursed, injuries happen.
Mike Green: Lots of time to possibly learn how to play defense, or if that fails, can fall back into acting career.
Alex Ovechkin: Can use the free time to continue to work on his tryout for the Washington Nationals
Alexander Semin: Maybe can actually do something so this way I can make fun of him
Brooks Laich: Can open up a successful tire changing business
Yann Danis: Wait a minute, I think he’s still glued to the bench, has someone told him the season’s over yet?
Washington Capitals Fans: Can hide the biggest weakness of themselves, the fact that they don’t actually know anything about hockey.
