John Tortorella- C -Rangers
John Tortorella blamed himself for the New York Rangers shortcomings in the second round of the playoffs.With a 3-1 loss on Saturday, the Rangers have lost their second-round series against the Boston Bruins in five contests. "I think one of the big things in this series is I could not -- and it does, it falls on me -- it’s a big part of my job to get your top players to play consistently and I couldn't do that," Tortorella said. Most notably, Brad Richards ended up being dropped to the fourth line and then scratched entirely. It will be interesting to see what becomes of Tortorella after this year. They were regarded as a Stanley Cup favorite going into this season, but they barely even made the playoffs.

Paul MacLean- C -Senators
Ottawa Senators coach Paul MacLean thought this season was a great learning experience for his young team."The adversity that this team faced, right out of the gate with Jason Spezza going down five games (into the season) and 10 games in Karlsson goes down, the growth our organization showed -- we got two years in one as far as development goes," said MacLean. "For our team to make the playoffs as a No. 7 seed and then to win the first round against a very good Montreal team, that just is great growth for an organization that is rebuilding. We learned some tough lessons here, but we took some good lessons from the Montreal series. If we can put them all together, it's just going to make us better down the road. "The Senators can certainly be proud with how this season has gone. They certainly are on the rise, but might lose some key veteran leaders for the 2013-14 campaign with Sergei Gonchar and Daniel Alfredsson both scheduled to become unrestricted free agents. Alfredsson isn't likely to entertain offers from other teams, but he might retire.

Henrik Lundqvist- G -Rangers
Henrik Lundqvist stopped 29 of 31 shots in a 3-1 loss Saturday.With that, the New York Rangers have been eliminated in five games. Lundqvist was stellar in the playoffs, but the Rangers couldn't coax nearly enough offense out of a team that entered the season with a trio of amazing skilled forwards. Marian Gaborik ended up getting traded and Brad Richards was reduce to a healthy scratch by the end of their playoff run. Rick Nash did produce in the regular season and put up decent numbers in the second round, but ultimately this team hasn't been able to build around Lundqvist yet despite their best efforts.

Daniel Alfredsson- W -Senators
Daniel Alfredsson hasn't decided on his future yet, but he still feels capable of contributing.Alfredsson also still enjoys the game, so it sounds like the only thing that might lead him to retiring is his family. "I find the travel really tough, with four young kids at home," Alfredsson said. "And that’s kind of what I struggle with, personally. Obviously, I will talk to my wife, to (general manager Bryan Murray), to (coach Paul MacLean), to see what they think. "He reiterated that he will take some time before coming to a decision. It's a very safe bet that the Senators will jump at the chance to re-sign him if he wants to continue his career.
