Please don't argue that Detroit has lost more games in the post season. Everyone knows it's harder to make it out of the West due to travel and the type of hockey played (yeah, Carolina and TBay won against two fluke teams). We'll see if Sydney Crosby can handle getting matched up against DMan that can skate right next to him.

MAF is not proven yet. This is the first time in the playoffs he's played good, and like many analysts are saying, his defence has played solid. This will be his test.

Maltby, Draper > Stall and Ruutu and Talbot

Maltby and Draper will be able to shut down the top players. Stall can pot the odd SH goal but no biggie, and Jarkko Ruutu is trash, I've seen the dude play for many years in Van City and he's a pest that makes way to many mistakes. Maxime Talbot, bahahaha.

I love playing the antagonist.

I'm sorry but Nas, Col, and Dal doesn't seem much harder than Ott, NYR, and Phi. Col was basically Ott, Phi is way better than Nas, and Dal did not play better against the Wings than the Rangers did against the Pens.

3 rounds of solid play (1.7 GAA, .938 S%, 12 wins with only 2 losses, and three shutouts) to go along with some of the best saves of the postseason are not proving anything to you? What were Cam Ward and Khabibulin in your eyes before they won their respective cups?

Will they be double shifting against the Crosby and Malkin lines?

Staal actually hasn't had a SH point all season...he's great defensively in that he can skate well, has great size and reach, natural hockey instincts, and tons of energy/heart. Ruutu may only have two goals and an assist, but he often matches up against other teams' top forwards and not only is not a minus, but often baits them into taking stupid penalties. Oh yeah, he also has three more points than Maltby...Draper only has one more goal than Ruutu and is also a -3 on a team that once again has a heavily inflated +/- with some of their blowouts. Talbot has 7 points and is a +5 in only 11 games, including an important GW goal against Philly and has seen his ice time increase to almost 16 minutes a game - hardly anything to laugh at.

I'll take all 7000 grand of yours if you just want a personal bet.

I'm taking the experience. Jordan Stall is my age. We'll if he's ready to shut down two of the best players in the game. I know Draper and Maltby can do it, but we'll just have to see if Jarko and Jordan are ready.

Can't wait for this. When does it start?

Thursday. And I'd put Sidney's line against Zetterbeg/Datsyuk too. Remember Babcock has been known to split those two up to "add depth" aka be an effin idiot. That would be enjoyable.

EDIT: My bad: what burton said - Saturday and Monday on VS and the rest on NBC.

Now that he's playing the Penguins, I don't want to see Henrik Zetterberg's mouthpiece come out of his mouth one time in this series...
