The Stanley Cup playoffs thread....

OOO I know Im going to spark some heavy debates with this one...


Now that round 1 is over, what are your predictions for round 2?

East

Philadelphia and Ottawa?

New Jersey and Tampa Bay?


West

Vancouver and Minnesota?

Anaheim and Dallas?


OK the rules are simple, keep it above the belts and lets get it on!

----------

I'll open this one up....

East

Philadelphia and Ottawa
Ottawa, hands down. These guys are true winners. They played a heck of a season, sometimes even for free. These men a true examples of hockey players and even won the eastern conference. The Flyers are coming off of a excellent series with the Leafs and are going to be exhausted.

Ottawa in 5

New Jersey and Tampa Bay
Both of these teams are talented, but can Tampa Bay have 2 successful professional sports teams in one year??

Jersey in 6

West

Vancouver and Minnesota
Few people expected the Canucks to pass the first round, and only the Red Wings fans expected the Wild to pass, so this is going to be a good one. If the teams can stay healthy, this will easily go 6 or 7 games.

Vancouver in 7

Anaheim Vs Dallas
Was J.S. Gieguere's performance in round one going to carry over or was it just a fluke? The Ducks had very little the first round except for the fact that Gieguere stopped virtually everything that came at him. Dallas has the experience and the goaltender. Another plus for Dallas, Bill Guerin should be coming back into the lineup hopefully soon and that will be a big boost for them. Dallas is now the favorite with the Wings and Avs gone.

Dallas should prevail.

Dallas in 5



I have spoken.

Since I don't really follow hockey all that much, I'll pick my choices based on some strange reasoning...so just try to follow.

Philadelphia v. Ottawa....
I take Ottawa, what's the hockey playoffs without a little Canadian blood in there just to mix things up a little bit. Plus I'm not picking Vancouver, see below.

New Jersey v. Tampa Bay...
The tampa bay bucs (yes, I know they're football) always beat the Minnesota vikings thus I hold a grudge against the whole city, so New Jersey it is! Not to mention I also have a lot of beef with Florida in general (no offense you Floridians, there's just too many instances that give your whole state a bad name).

Vancouver v. Minnesota...
Wild all the way baby! Born and raised in Minnesota and the one and only thing I like from that state are its sports teams. I hope they take the whole thing to compensate for the Vikings dismal season and the twins lost in the baseball playoffs. If the Timberwolves win too it will be a great season for Minnesotans.

Dallas v. Anaheim...
First of all there's one strike against Dallas because they abadoned Minnesota. Second, I just really don't like the state of Texas (no offense Texans). Then I am from southern California so I guess I should root for the ducks and their team was formed based on a movie set in Minnesota so yeah, of course I have to root for them.

Oh my...5 OT game and the Ducks prevail...

This is working out for my Stars in 5 prediction...


Jersey won last night also, but not as exciting as the 7 full period + 55 second game

Well, here are the "Hockey God's" prediction :


East:

Ottawa Vs. Philadelphia: Phillie isn't that great. Ottawa has the speed and people. Phillie only had luck their last round.

**Ottawa in 5**

New Jersey Vs. Tampa Bay: Wow. Tampa Bay made it past the 1st round. New Jersey is the better team all around.

**New Jersey in 4**


West:

Anaheim Vs. Dallas: If the Ducks can play like they did against Detroit, they will get a sweep, again. Their goaltender makes up what they lack in offense.

**Ducks in 4** <---Upset Special

Vancouver vs. Minnesota: Minnesota showed who they where against Colorado. Vancouver faced St. Louis, and St. Louis isn't that great of a team, but both of their rounds went into game 7.

**Minnesota in 5**

I'd like to point out that D.J.'s avatar was, until recently, a changing display of pro-Avalanche propaganda, and anti-Red Wings sentiments. It's amazing how fast that changed when the Avalanche were beaten by lowly, recent expansion Minnesota. Now he's backing the soon to be swept Dallas Stars (ironically the former Minnesota NorthStars). I say it going to be New Jersey over Anaheim in the finals (in 6 games or less).

Now that hockey season's over, it time to watch some basketball. Seeing that Mr. Fluck is from Indiana, I'd like to offer a gentelmen's bet: Pistons over the Pacers in the conference finals.

1. avalanche are eliminated no point in rooting for an eliminated team. Gotta go with my 2nd favorite. Anyway, Im still sticking with the story that the red wings inhale audibly..next year is the avs year. When hockey season starts back up, ill have the avs avatar back up. Heck, Im not one who changes teams. My room is decorated with Avalanche gear and I don't plan on changing teams any time soon.

2. Basketball inhales audibly as much or even more as the red wings...so who cares

Cause they're going to win....time to bring the cup back home...besides the fact that its sitting in the HOF in Toronto most of the year

[edit]

I'll also point out that up to this point all of my picks have been correct:

Ottawa - Philadelphia (Senators lead series 1-0)
New Jersey - Tampa Bay (Devils lead series 2-0)
Dallas - Anaheim (Ducks lead series 2-0)
Vancouver - Minnesota (Canucks lead series 1-0)

[/edit]

The Angels won the world series in highly improbable fashion. The Ducks will win the stanley cup in an even more highly improbably fashion.

Here are my predictions, straight from the "Go Leafs" thread:

Ottawa in five
Tampa Bay in seven
Anaheim in seven
Minnesota in six

Right now, it looks like two of those could happen (Ottawa and Anaheim). The other two are questionable.

One more game left for Anaheim to advance...Go Ducks!
