YOUR first round choke artists!

It's time to name my all-choke team for the first round.

The following players are players that simply did not pull their weight in the playoffs at all. Their teams relied on them, and they did not pull through. And no, I will not simply put "The Atlanta Thrashers" and call it a day. That would be too easy.

1st team All-Choke Artists

G Kari Lehtonen, Atlanta
D Dion Phaneuf, Calgary
D Sean Hill, New York Islanders
RW Marian Gaborik, Minnesota
C Evgeni Malkin, Pittsburgh
LW Paul Kariya, Nashville

2nd team All-Choke Artists

G Tomas Vokoun, Nashville
D Dan Boyle, Tampa Bay
D Ryan Whitney, Pittsburgh
RW Marian Hossa, Atlanta
C Mike Ribeiro, Dallas
LW Kristian Huselius, Calgary

And finally, my "Pass the Buck" team. Players whose teams have been eliminated, but by god you can't blame these players

G Marty Turco, Dallas
D Tom Poti, New York Islanders
D Petteri Nummelin, Minnesota
LW Martin St. Louis, Tampa Bay
C Sidney Crosby, Pittsburgh
RW J.P. Dumont, Nashville

That's all for now, but starting this afternoon/tomorrow I'll have up my second round playoff previews and predictions!
