Neowin's NHL 2004 Stanley Cup Playoffs Thread


Recommended Posts

with all of the fire power the Avs had this year, they should run away with the president's trouphy. the goaltending has been good this year. I agree with everyone, the Avs will be lucky to get out of the first round, but it would be an upset if they lose against the Stars. the Avs are going against the scariest thing in the playoffs, a hot team called the Dallas Stars.

West:

Wings over Predators (too much Wings)

Stars over Avs (Stars on fire)

Flames over Canucks (the lost of Bertuzzi will hurt Canucks)

Blues over Sharks (Blues in a close, tight series)

East:

Habs over Bruins (Thorton lost will hurt Bruins)

Senators over Leafs (another good series between two Canadian teams)

Flyers over Devils (Devils are like the Avs, they are falling apart and wont be able to recover)

Lightning over Islanders (the Islanders will show up for each game and that's about it)

our goaltending scares me too though...

You thought yours was bad!? That's why canucks are gonna loose in the 2nd round. No contest against the flames. Canucks in 4!

I've said this for years, cloutiers is a BACKUP goalie! He's not a starter. He's too inconsistent, and his whole game relies on his reflexes.. which are shoddy at best.

ok, to clarify, when i said montreal were somewhat newcomers, what i meant was, they are a young team that has been inconsistent in the last few years, in and out of the playoffs. again, you guys may disagree.

to the guy who said "any team with 24 stanley cups cannot be considered newcomers" or something along those lines, by YOUR logic the new jersey devils are new comers because they have only won 3??????? odd.....

anyway, sorry for any confusion.

Well, sure some or most of the players are newcomers. But every year all teams are new, unless they managed to keep every player from the year before. And had no injuries.

what? no? I never said the Devils were newcomers either... :blink: .. I was just shocked that you could call the Habs newcomers after they had won 24 Cups.. I dont know where you got that i said or implied anything about the devils being newcomers? now, the Predators are newcomers

i'm WAY too smart to make any predictions. hell, in the past 10 years, florida, carolina and anaheim have made it to the freakin' finals, fer crissakes! it's anyones cup.

it just warms my cockles, though, that a bunch o' geeks actually follow the best - nay, the only - sport worth watching.

as the playoffs start tomorrow, my short hairs get all tingly...

I'm quite sickened by the LACK OF SUPPORT FOR THE ISLANDERS

We beat these pansies 3 times during the regular season. You people need to stop thinking that Tampa Bay is like god.. They fuggen suck ass against us!!

The view from the other side is interesting, considering the Isles' recent success against the Bolts. "Are we a little nervous playing against them? Of course," Lightning center Tim Taylor said in the Tampa Bay Tribune. "I think you have to be nervous playing against anyone. They have beaten us pretty good over the last couple of years. I think that gives us a little more motivation. We have to play harder."

EAST:

1- Tampa Bay Lightning

2- Montreal Canadiens

3- New Jersey Devils

4 - Ottawa Senators.

WEST:

1- Detroit Red Wings

2- San Jose Sharks

3- Vancouver Canucks in 4 (but to be realistic 6)

4 - Dallas Stars in 4 (clean sweep and huge upset)

Nucks v Sens in the finals. This is the year of the Canadians! Especially the Canucks!

Go! Nucks! Go! FREE BERT!
