I believed.

I still believe.

But the Pens aren't going to be traveling to DC in a few days to take on the number one seed in the East. The Lightning are.

The power play problems we had all year? They cost us the series.

Now, no disrespect to Dwayne Roloson -- he never lost his composure, and he was the sole reason we aren't facing the Caps. And the Lightning defense was smothering and frustrating.

But all the injuries to key players may just be the opportunity the Pens needed to build for the future. Because of Sid's and Geno's half-season salaries being slid right off the cap, we were able to deal for young talented winger James Neal. Now he took a ton of criticism, but all I have been able to think about since the playoffs started was how good he'll look after a full camp, teamed with Sid the playmaker.

I entered this playoff year in a most unusual situation: excited for the postseason possibilities, yet thrilled with the idea of having a complete healthy roster in October.

That second idea is my comfort now.
