National Hockey League 2007-08 Stanley Cup Playoffs

Recommended Posts

Matrix XII    38

My picks, since we're doing that I guess hehe

1Montreal vs 8Boston = Montreal (I don't like them after this round however)

2Pittsburgh vs 7Ottawa = Pittsburgh (The Penguins have too much going for them, the Sens are spiraling downwards)

3Washington vs 6Flyers = Washington (I'm pulling for the Caps like no other team right now)

4NJ vs NY = 5New Jersey (Close one, but the Devils have Brodeur, and NY doesn't)

1Detroit vs 8Nashville = Detroit (Great team, but will they get production from Datsyuk, Zetts, and Hasek?)

2San Jose vs 7Calgary = Calgary (Very tough choice, but Calgary has a playoff team)

3Minnesota vs 6Colorado = Colorado (The Avs have more depth because of the deadline, and more experience)

4Anaheim vs 5Stars = Anaheim (Anaheim could win the cup again)

We have similar picks :p

You actually think that Nashville is going to beat Detroit? :|

Cup picks

West: Anaheim

East: Pittsburgh

Stanley Cup: Anaheim

I hope they don't though, cause I hate Anaheim.

Lets go bruins!

Yeah, go home Bruins! Oh wait, that's not what you meant, is it? ;)

I'll laugh when your Habs don't make it past the 2nd round.

I'll laugh if your team doesn't make it past the first round... oh yeah, they're not playing. :p

You expect to win the cup with a rookie goalie?

Dryden? Roy? They never won any cups in their rookie years?

I like Vancouver for some reason lol They aren't my favourite team or anything (The Flames are), But they aren't too bad. I just really don't like the Preds or Ducks. I think its mostly because of the movies, but just really don't like them lol

@Joel

Fair enough we didn't make the playoffs, but we didn't have the horses to do much this year, we all know that.

I'm not saying that Price isn't a great goalie. Just looking at the past isn't going to make him a Dryden or Roy, even though he is playing in Hab country. Those aforementioned goaltenders honed their skills as rookies in a different age and it's much tougher these days.

Let's just say that Montreal wins the East (which I doubt), they will have to go against a West team that is built for the playoffs. Your team hasn't changed much from last year (you even lost Souray) and I'm not sure why everyone is expecting a cup. Teams like San Jose, Calgary, and Anaheim have teams that are built to win playoff series, teams that have toughness and grit. You go up against Anaheim and who is going to step up to the plate and play physical? They'll knock Kovalev and your talented Euros into next week. (Why do you think Vancouver is too soft, because we have too many damn Swedes!)

The West is a completely different conference, and when it comes playoff time, the West will win the Stanley cup again.

I don't hate Montreal, I quite like them actually, I just don't see them winning a cup. Rookie goalie, Koivu injured, little toughness.

Let me hear your thoughts too because, I'm just one person, and of course can be wrong ;)

ha, little toughness, i love it when people say that about us and koivu will be back very soon, don't worry. Boston thinks we ain't tough either and tries to hammer us, but we all know how that worked out all year, same with philly. We have the most balanced attack in the league and the most under rated defensive in the league. Komi is a machine and he is going to be 100 percent when he is back. Keep doubting my team, everyone has all year and i love it.

I agree the west is stronger, doesn't take a genious to see that, but i think montreal can take any team in the west one on one no problem, especially after they beat the crap out of eachother for a month and a half.

hah, the Bruins looked like deer caught in a whole bunch of headlights last night :rofl:

Caps game starting in 45mins, go Caps!!

Anaheim lost, but there has been some really bad officiating (including the Calgary game) in these playoffs so far.

Oh well, hopefully they'll bring it back in game 3.

GO HABS GO :)

Tonight's game was crazy. Definately not as easy as last game. The Bruins showed up for the game alot more confident and they never let go. The Canadiens will definately need to step up in their power play. It's great that they are able to beat the bruins so easily at even strength but with the power play goals on top of that, that would be amazing !

Habs will pass the 1st round without a doubt but it will be a whole different story against the Penguins !
