wings have looked pretty bad the past week or so......their defense for some reason isnt the same as last year.

vancouver looks pretty good right now imo.


pens will beat the flyers in the first round :)

#8 Anaheim Ducks i hope they win

Xcursion 04-12-2009 20:04

First round predictions:


EAST:
(1) Boston vs (8) Montreal - Boston in 5.
(2) Washington vs (7) NY Rangers - Ovie lights it up in 6.
(3) New Jersey vs (6) Carolina - Marty dances on his head yet again.
(4) Pittsburgh vs (5) Philadelphia - Philly will physically dominate Malkin and Crosby the whole series and I think at least one of them will get injured enough to be sidelined for the rest of the playoffs.


WEST:
(1) San Jose vs (8) Anaheim - Very simple. San Jose will **** them in 5.
(2) Detroit vs (7) Columbus - It's a strech but Columbus has been playing really well and I think they will upset the European Red Wings.
(3) Vancouver vs (6) St. Louis - A long series probably to 6 at the least. Vancouver leans on Lulongo way too much.
(4) Chicago vs (5) Calgary - Calgary has too many injuries right now and are going to **** up.

I'm going to enjoy watching the circus that is Montreal, and the over-paid under-performing squad that is the rangers go down in flames. Cannon fodder for real teams.

Out west, my sleeper pick is BJs. That Mason kid is ****ing good, and their extremely defensive style is perfect for the playoffs.

East, I'm going Carolina. Cam Ward has been a ****ing monster lately (even counting the debacle in Buffalo) and he's already carried a rather mediocre team to the cup before.

I go with the hot goalies.

we were playing with like 50% of our team injured. We're 100% now. New team.

Plus, Sid is ****ing overrated. Last time we played them how many shots did he have?

Oh yea...none.

How many goals does Crosby have? 26?

Oh many does carter have? Oh 46.

We're going to break the pens defense like a ****ing twig.

and biron, he's shaky during the regular season, but he's a ****ing god amongst mortals during the playoffs.

5 of their last 10 games went to overtime. They raped the Flames 5-0 but they lost to the Blues, Preds and Wild during that strech.

columbus usually plays detroit tough, just like nashville does. however, a rookie goalie + no playoff experience usually means a quick exit from the playoffs.


wings in 5, MAYBE 6

Not all rookie goalies fail miserably in the playoffs. He's got 10 shut out this year. That's a hell of a lot just for a rookie.

he is good...but first time in the playoffs + inexperienced team vs. the red wings is a bad combo.

Yeah, If he lets in a softy in Detroit the crowed is def gonna get to him. At least that's what I think.

Yeah it will be. I actually think the Canes can pull through. At least I hope so... I don't like the Devs.

2bad4u 04-12-2009 20:33

Depends on how much faith you have in the red wings desire to win. As has been pointed out in another thread, history has shown the tend to surround Cup wins with 1st/2nd round dropouts. On paper, they're easily the best team.

HeLLrAiSr 04-12-2009 20:34

lol at people picking ****in carolina over my devils

they can sometimes flame out pretty early. i think they go out in the 2nd round vs. the canucks.

(1) Boston vs (8) Montreal - Montreal should get swept, but I think they will do better than people will expect.
(2) Washington vs (7) NY Rangers - This entire series depends on Lundqvist. He will determine who wins. But I picked the Caps before the season started, and it sucks to pick them as I am a Rangers fan.
(3) New Jersey vs (6) Carolina - Carolina to be honest.
(4) Pittsburgh vs (5) Philadelphia - Pittsburgh. I would be really shocked if the Flyers won this series. Flyers seem to be allergic to good goalies. Biron will never win anything.


WEST:
(1) San Jose vs (8) Anaheim - SJ
(2) Detroit vs (7) Columbus - I am going with Columbus. And I think that Conklin will end up the starter at some point in the playoffs for Detroit.
(3) Vancouver vs (6) St. Louis - Luongo is too good. Nice to see St. Louis make it though.
(4) Chicago vs (5) Calgary - Should be Calgary, but would love to see Chicago win this.

Overpaid... yes. Underperforming? No. The Rangers are doing about as good as they should be doing. Paying Gomez, Drury, and Redden 7 Millions dollars a piece wont make them into good players. If you ignore the Rangers salaries, on paper they looking like a pretty bad team.
