Just Get In

Kevin Allen of USA TODAY sat down with Kris Draper...
Parity seems to have engulfed the NHL. Do the Detroit players look around and tell themselves, this is a whole new salary cap world and we just have to get into the playoffs and give ourselves a chance? Draper: That's exactly what it is. I think last season when we watched how the playoffs were shaping up you knew that (regardless of who you played) you were going to play a team that had an opportunity to win a Stanley Cup. That's just how it was. It will be the same thing this year. There were a lot of changes in the offseason. You go out and play 82 games and win as many as you can, but you have to be ready to play your best hockey come playoff time. You have to try to get better and better, and try to get on that roll. Carolina got on it last year and Edmonton got on it.
