    Devils vs Rangers - Rangers

    Senators vs Lightning - Senators

    Hurricanes vs Canadiens - Hurricanes

    Sabres vs Flyers - Sabres

    Stars vs Avalanche - Stars

    Red Wings vs Oilers - Red Wings

    Sharks vs Predators - Sharks

    Mighty Ducks vs Flames - Flames

    Nearly identical ... I think the Rangers are going to put an end to the Devils streak they have going. Sabres over the Flyers in a long series. Detroit is who I pick to win it all, obviously Not too long from now I will be heading down the the Wings game Have a good night minir and take in a few games. I think I will get home around midway through the Ducks/Flames and finish watching that.

    My pens are still not worthy of the playoffs, i got spoiled there in the 90's and now i htink im having playoff hockey withdrawls!

    Anyway my 2nd favorite team is Detriot ( so fun to watch )

    I can honestly say im looking forward to the Rangers-Devils as well as Stars-Avs.

    Devils vs Rangers...Rangers(in no less than 6 games)

    Senators vs Lightning...Lightning (call me crzy!!!)

    Hurricanes vs Canadiens...Canes

    Sabres vs Flyers...Flyers (not too sure tho, i think this will be a physical series!! with whatever team wins severly beat up for the next round)

    Stars vs Avalanche...Stars (thinking another long Series as well! Might be my pic for 7 game series!)

    Red Wings vs Oilers...Wings (gonna take it all!!!)

    Sharks vs Predators...Sharks

    Mighty Ducks vs Flames...Ducks

    Im probobly gonna be completely off tho! Being stuck down here its hard to find any good hockey news without searching myself. Thank god i could afford center ice!!

    Devils vs Rangers - Devils
    The Rangers have loads of firepower and a first round exit would be surprising, but I'll take Brodeur and the red hot Devils here.

    Senators vs Lightning - Sens
    Great system, great talent and the goaltending edge.

    Hurricanes vs Canadiens - Hurricanes
    The Hurricanes are a very strong team at home, I think this is a 5 game series.

    Sabres vs Flyers - Sabres
    Buffalo has the goaltending advantage and excellent special teams, I think their PP and PK are both ranked in the top 3.

    Stars vs Avalanche - Stars
    Very deep team, well coached and strong goaltending...it will be too much for the Avs.

    Red Wings vs Oilers - Wings
    I wouldn't be surprised if this goes 6-7 games. Edmonton is always a tough team to play, but the Wings play a tighter system and I don't see them losing 4 times in 7 games.

    Sharks vs Predators - Sharks
    The Preds are tough at home, but the loss of their star goaltender has to hurt. The Sharks were hot down the stretch and I think they'll keep it up.

    Mighty Ducks vs Flames - Ducks
    I could see both of these teams going a long way, depending on their goaltenders, but I'll give a slight edge to the Ducks. Anaheim plays an excellent transition game and I wonder how much offense Calgary will have. If the Ducks win this series, Scott Niedermeyer will be their MVP.

    I live in Ontario, and the Leafs are history, so I'm rooting for Calgary all the way.

    Our Premiere wants Toronto fans to root for the Senators?

    Ya! Right!

    Hi Guys

    More interesting choices, however a consensus is beginning to come through.

    Mad_Haggis
    Ottawa... Probably the Team most disliked by Leafs Fans. The Preem has his head in its usual local. No sunshine their.

    Thanks Fellas...Good Luck

    Hi Randy & YARDofSTUF


    Randy
    I didn't watch the end of that one last night? Don't know how it came out?

    --

    YARDofSTUF
    I'd picked the Sens along with Philly & Vancouver as possible Cup winners at the start of the Season. However the Canucks had a meltdown and now the Sens are without Hasek so i question their long term survival. Philly still in their but i now am watching Calgary & Dallas as possible Cup recipients???

    Yes the Sens are a consensus pick so far and it may well end up being the right choice.

    Thanks Fellas and do enjoy your weekend.

    yeah kariya scored game winner in a 4-3 victory over the sharks

    I hope calgary gets the cup this year. They have a really good goalie but they should not have traded Marty Gelinas

    Hi Randy


    Things do change in the Playoffs huh! Injury or a Hot Goalie can make or break you in the blink of an eye.

    I think Vegas odds are with Detroit? Who knows how it will turn out and there is bound to be at least one upset before the first Series is done.

    Thanks and have fun
