Playoffs!!

What're your guys' predictions? Who is most likely to end up in the finals? What would be best for the league? What would be the most fun to watch? etc etc...??

In the finals: San Jose vs. Montreal --> Stanley Cup Champs: The Sharks!
Conf. Finalists: Detroit and Pittsburgh

Best for the league: Detroit vs. NY (duh)

Most fun to watch: Colorado vs. Washington. Run & Gun!! [well, not really, but w/e!]

Anyhoooo.....

First things first, 1st Round Predictions:

WESTERN CONFERENCE

(1) Detroit vs. (8) Nashville
Detroit's gonna whoop Nashville. Hasek gets hurt. So does a non-D. Doesn't matter though, Detroit still whoops 'em.
Prediction: Red Wings in five

(2) San Jose vs. (7) Calgary
Calgary is gonna get stomped! San Jose is just too good now. This will be surprisingly low-scoring, and both Thornton and Iginla will be shut down.
Prediction: Sharks in five

(3) Minnesota vs. (6) Colorado
This one'll be fun. Surprisingly the highest-scoring round in the league, due to Gaborik's heroics and Colorado's meshing together. It'll be close, but Colorado works some magic with Sakic and Forsberg. Someone gets hurt for the playoffs from one of the Wild's rent-a-goon.
Prediction: Colorado in seven

(4) Anaheim vs. (5) Dallas
Brad Richards surprises, but it won't be enough. Too much crazy D on Anaheim for Dallas to score through. The loss of Halpern is surprising.
Prediction: Ducks in six


EASTERN CONFERENCE

(1) Montreal vs. (8) Boston
Canadiens pwn Boston. End of story.
Prediction: Canadiens in four, SWEEP!

(2) Pittsburgh vs. (7) Ottawa
Ottawa goes crazy defensive and stuns everyone to a 3-1 start. Malkin gets medieval and fights Emery. Not only does he win the fight, he scores like 12 goals in that game. Its the turnaround the Penguins needed, and the youngin' team starts their uber-chemistry! Some weird no-name guys becomes a star for some reason or another.
Prediction: Penguins in seven.

(3) Washington vs. (6) Philadelphia
Philly smacks around Washington and win a couple off the bat. Ovechkin gets pissed and takes out Briere (like he almost did last time). Ovechkin gets the superstar treatment, and they run the table, winning 4 straight.
Prediction: Capitals in six

(4) New Jersey vs. (5) New York Rangers
Psh, who cares. Jersey sucks, Rangers suck more, nobody likes Jersey, everyone hates Rangers. For the league's sake, let the Rangers freakin' win!
Prediction: Rangers in six



And there you have it, my playoff predictions! Off the top of my head to boot.

Now that was a fun non-productive use of my precious homework time, heheh.
