NHL Playoff Thread

I'm laying it down a bit early because I don't want noone else to make this thread.

Obviously, I would like to have the members contribute as the post-season progresses. Post your Stanely Cup match-up predictions while we wait for it to begin.

Well it looks like the teams in the West are all decided, the order however has yet to be finalized but we have;

1 - Detroit Red Wings - Like every other year.
2 - San Jose Sharks
3 - Minnesota Wild
4 - Anahiem Ducks
5 - Dallas Stars
6 - Colorado Avalanche
7 - Calgary Flames
8 - Nashville Predators

-----

I'm soo happy for the Predators for making it but I feel bad for Luongo. He's such a wicked-bad goalie who deserves to be on a championship team.

If this ends up being the first round, I'll pick;

Nashville over Detroit
San Jose over Calgary
Minnesota over Colorado
Dallas over Ducks

Since the East is in a nerve-racking state, I will refrain from putting it up until tommorow morning. I hope Florida spanks the Hurricanes though, for Washingtons sake.

This is gonna be an exciting year of playoff hockey friends, I cannot wait until it begins.

Nashville over Detroit???

The only chance that will happen is if Luongo gets in the zone and stays there. Which he is very capible of, but he would have to win that series by himself.

Detroit>Nashville
San Jose>Calgary
Minnesota>Colorado
Dallas>Ducks

I like the rest of your picks, but I have to take my hometown boys to go all the way this year. They just can't get knocked out early AGAIN this year.

Finally another hockey thread, lol.

Det>Nash
SJ>Cal
Col>Min
Ana>Dal

Nashville over Detroit? Yikes!
SJ vs Cal is gonna be harder than people think for SJ. SJ is one of the strongest teams, but Cal is never easy...and oh yeah, they have Jarome Iginla.
Col with a healthy Forsberg these guys have two incredibly strong forward lines. Theodore is playing like before and their D isn't that bad.
Ana is Ana (proven playoff goaltending, best defensive core in the league, and the same offense as last year - McDonald, +Weight, +a better Bertuzzi, and + a better Bobby Ryan) - sorry Dallas.

I just hope the West beat up on each other so that when the Pittsburgh Penguins reach the Finals the enemy is ripe for the picking.

Ha, that's what I'm banking on as well (not to jinx the Pens)! But that's the Duck's game, and if they do it right, they'll be right back in the Stanley Cup finals.

Good to see hockey get some love around hear!! As far as the east goes, I really hope Washington get in, Ovechkin is da biz!

Anyhow over to the west:

Detroit > Nashville...I dont see how anyone can think Nashville will KO the Red Wings

San Jose > Calgary...going to be a real tough series, but I think San Jose will take it in 6.

Minnesota > Colorado...Dont think Forsberg is gonna be that effective.

Anaheim > Dallas...Definetly Anaheim, they are legit contenders.

Me too (enjoyin the hockey love and hopin the Caps get in). Not just to see Ovechkin finally in the playoffs, but so that the Pens might get a chance to wreck the Caps.

11 pts in 8 games. If he's healthy, Forsberg is always a factor.

Agreed. How quickly people forget this is basically the same team that won it all just last year. They do have Scott Neidermayer and Chris Pronger after all.

Red Wings > Predators

Sharks > Flames

Avs > Wild

Stars > Ducks

I hate the Ducks and I think the stars have the goaltending and the offense to beat them.


And I think I can take a guess on how the east might turn out...

1. Penguins
2. Canadiens
3. Washington
4. Rangers
5. Devils
6. Senators
7. Bruins
8. Flyers

Since the Washington-Carolina conference is so weak, I think Washington can get bumped up to 3rd place. They both face Florida for their final game, and I think Carolina will lose to them today and Washington will beat them tomorrow to take 3rd place.

Not sure how the brackets will turn out, but I think those 8 teams will make it. I am pretty confident that the Penguins, Candiens, and Rangers will make it to the second round no matter who they play.

Did you guys forget that the Red Wings got swept by a 2003 Anahiem Ducks team? Nashville can beat Detroit, I'm counting on it lol.
