Well, I was 7/8 in first round play but, unfortunately the one series I lost (effin Ducks) I picked the team to go all the way to the finals! So continuing with my picks I would have this in the 2nd round:
Mon>Phi 6
Pit>NYR 5
Det>Col 7
Dal>SJ 7

If I were allowed to second guess myself, I'd probably only maybe change Det vs Col. Col is trouble, and Osgood hasn't played enough to earn my confidence. It still bothers me how he gets put into first place for all the stats categories after playing 2 games!

Mon I think will be too fast and too deep for Philly to handle. Philly's D looked slow in the first round, and let's face it, Biron is garbage.

Pit is Pit. Rangers have to find a way to solve Fleury, because when you have Crosby, Malkin, AND Hossa all on one team, shutouts should be an automatic no. Gomez, Jagr, Shanahan, and Drury seem like a pretty nice way to do just that though.

Dal looked unreal in the first round. They made the Ducks look like crap. And they might get Zubov (probably the most underrated defensemen in the league) back sometime soon? That is nothing but bad news for a SJ team that didn't show much fire IMO during the first round.

Avery has always talked so much trash about Laraque but doesn't want to drop the gloves with him cause he knows he'd get smashed and his name would mean nothing. Anyway..

Habs over Flying Shits in 6
Pens over Rags in 6
Wings over Avs in 7
Sharks over Stars in 7

Anybody find it comical that the Avalanche just brought the band back together and a riding a Montreal Canadian goalie that got kicked out of town again?

Where's Claude at these days, they'd be a lock for the cup then. Seriously underrated team: Smyth, Sakic, Forsberg, Peter Stastny's kid, Wolski, Hedjuk, Brunette, and T.J. Hensick who is a really underrated kid out of college. Svatos is hurt to on top of that and the team has the grinders to boot.

Hannan, Leopold, Foote, Salei, Liles, Sauer on the back end is good and as mentioned Theodore is playing like it's 2002. So **** it, Avs for the underdog pick.

Avs > Wings Rangers > Penguins
Stars > Sharks Canadians > Flyers (tough one to call)

Not that I think he's a bad goalie or anything like that but if I were to rate the remaining starting goalies, Theodore would be on the bottom. I don't see the Theodore that carried Montreal that one year. If I were to guess Colorados success thusfar I would hand it all to their skaters because they pretty all have the playoff experience nessesscary to make it.

I'd shit the bed if Ryan Smyth won the cup and took it back to Edmonton Seriously, I would die laughing at Oiler fans if that happened.

The Rangers and Pens game 1 was freakin phenominal. The third period went without a penalty for like 17 minutes. Non-stop action and alot of plays, that playoff hockey at its finest. Game 2 yesterday...I can't believe the Rangers were shutout, but its nice to see the Pens go up 2-0.

Dallas taking it to the Sharks twice in San Jose and they even managed to get Nabokov pulled, how often does that happen. Turco is freak simply put.

Can't say I'm suprised by Detroits success, they almost always have their way against the Avalance.

I'm really surprised by how fatigued and unmotivated Montreal looks. They are just as deep as the Flyers, and they use more of their defensemen in the average rotation. It is the Flyers' D that should be tired! Good thing Timonen is a such a horse. Biron has looked better than expected and Danny Briere is showing everyone why he commanded such a contract. He turned it on just as everyone in Philly was jumping off his bandwagon and leaving him for dead.

Pit series has gone just as expected! Sidney, Hossa, and Dupuis are starting to click (as long as Sidney and Hossa do, I don't care who else is on the line - Roberts is good to make sure if someone touches Sid or Hossa they pay that very same shift. The D looks solid - best PK in the playoffs is it, and they've let up the least goals per game. And how bout Gil punishing Avery in front of the net for slashing at MAF? Speaking of MAF, he looks great. After falling behind 3-0, he shut it down and came up with some big saves. The cross-ice back-door saves on multiple occasions in game one secured a victory - he must've been used to the Sidney to Whitney play! Another positive from game 2 was that Malone missed two open nets so the score could've been somewhat different.

I haven't watched too much of the Det series besides the highlights, but they seem to have that series in control. Is Forsbger going to play? And how about Franzen? Sleeper of 08 playoffs pick.

Dal has looked better than SJ throughout IMO. Now they get Zubov back...They have balanced scoring and Riberio looks unstoppable. Oh yeah, Turco is pretty good too.

Brad Richards, Mike Modano, Riberio, Morrow, and the cast from Finland, their D and Turco in net make them a scary team. Somewhere, Doug Armstrong is pissed.
