The NHL playoffs can make or break careers. If a player fails more than once during the postseason he'll be tagged as a choker, a player that can't get it done when it matters the most. Once labelled as such, a player almost needs to be superhuman to shake that tag.
On the other side you have the players that are known as "money" players, players that can up the ante when the playoffs roll around. These players are a rare breed, the type of player that the opposition hopes to see listed on the injury report for every playoff game.
This is a list of the players that opposing teams don't want to see jump over the boards when the game is on the line during this year's playoffs.
