  1. Thumbs up NHL Playoff matchups


    Alrighty ladies, it is playoff time in the NHL again. Yes my Maple Laughs didn't make the playoffs but it should still be an interesting 2nd season.

    Here are the matchups:

    Ottawa vs Tampa Bay

    Carolina vs Montreal

    New Jersey vs New York R

    Buffalo vs Philedelphia

    Detroit vs Edmonton

    Dallas vs Colorado

    Calgary vs Anaheim

    Nashville vs San Jose

    Post your picks.

    Nashville vs San Jose
    San Jose

    If you're looking for any serious "upsets", I'd be looking at Montreal and Edmonton to take out their respective division and league overall leaders.

    Montreal is on fire right now, and Carolina is slumping. Ironically, if Carolina gets past Montreal - I'd be thinking they'll make the finals.

    If Edmonton plays at the top of their game, they will beat Detroit, no matter how great Detroit plays their own game. However, Edmonton has been so inconsistant, and any slightly off night for them will result in a loss to the Presidental Cup champs.

    I can't call Philly an upset - that's going to be a very physical matchup.

    Can't call San Jose an upset over Nashville. Nashville is missing their #1 goalie, plus they're in the weakest division, so their season points are inflated.

    This man loves his hockey. Are you sure you're American? LoL.

    I may be Canadian, and I loved watching my team win the Stanley Cup 5 times - but I'm not hardcore enough to even say those rank up there as some of my best weekends of my life.

    I hope you enjoy what you see. Guessing by your avatar, you're a Forsberg fan. He's the only reason I pickd Philly over Buffalo. As long as Forsberg is not hurt, Philly will go far. But that's just a barely educated guess, as I really don't even know much about the Eastern conference.

    I hope to be happy this weekend, but if all the critics and media are correct, my Oilers are going down fast. Of course, I don't believe what the "experts" say. "Experts" are the ones that told me I'd never walk again, let alone wrestle. Look at me now - I'm trying out the for Olympic team!

    Wait a minute...that wasn't me...that was a movie I watched. Crap. I guess I didn't bang Brittney Spears either.

  11. Good man Sunder... I just enjoy hockey, in terms of the sports that are currently on tv. I hate baseball and basketbal. I love hockey and football. What more does a man need ina sport?? its got the three basic food groups:
    Hitting People, Fighting and Shooting objects at things.....

    Its all a man could ask for.


    In terms of the best weekend of my live i guess i shoudl clarify that I just recently got a 55in Plasma HDTV and i'm wathing all of the game in HD. I just hooked up my other two tv's to watch the rest of them all at the same time... and i also just got a case of beer.... All i need now is a woman that enjoys hockey and i'll be set.

    You sold me - I'm coming over!

  13. one down three to go.GO WINGS! I'd be happy if we get by Edmonton in 7..they are a damn good team. Detroit needs to turn it up a bit

    Detroits line up cracks me up, I forgot that there top 5 players all have hockey stick curves named after them.

  15. Avs won 5-2 against Dallas...I hope they can keep this up.

  16. Edmonton downs Detroit 4-2 in regulation. 3 more wins like that and the wings are golfing.

    Go Oilers!

    Take off, hoser! man detroit has a trend of late, great season then get blasted by some in the first round. I knew edmonton would be tough....damn canadiens!

    Actually the "canadiens" are playing against Carolina. Edmonton is playing Detroit. Unless of course you meant to type Canadians? You yanks crack me up sometimes.

    But yeah, the combination of detroit's history of choking the 1st round with Edmonton's history of upping their game in the playoffs make this matchup quite interesting. Detroit has surprised me though, they are a much stronger team than I thought and Yzerman is playing much better than I hoped he would. LoL

  20. I was happy for TB win, but the goddman flyers need to step it up tonight. I'm looking forward to a colorado win and a Flyer win as well ,But i think the sabers might desotroy them again..

    Why you! What with our backward school system, us americans have a little trouble spelling Actually Yzerman is one of the main reasons I am a detroit fan (not from there), and why I wore # 19 when I played. I had to pick a main team about 25 years ago because
    my dads family is from boston, i actually played juniors and some college hockey there ( yes I still have a soft spot for the bruins)
    my moms french (okay, may not matter)
    IJ have canadian cousins in montreal (I spelled it right: ) Too many blows to the head I guess.
    I have actually been to canada many times, it's a great country..except for that whole Avril Lavinge thing.........
    hey true story I went to school one year with Bryan Adams ..you guys should go ahead and give a work permit up there
    Seriously, a little off topic but I glad to see Canadian teams in there, Its hockey land. I don't need to see anymore Winnipeg deals! No more teams need to move.....whats next, Vancouver move's to Seattle? I can see it now, the seattle canadiens.oops I meant Canucks! Don't laugh the idea was being tossed around a couple years ago

  22. GO AVS!!! Up 2-0 coming home... For my fellow Avs fans, are you as excited as I am to have Wolski and Svatos on a line next year??? Ive been following his year in juniors all season and have been drooling to get him back up here for the playoffs. This guy is gonna be another Forsberg. You heard it here first. Let's hope Turco keeps up his form of awful playoff hockey! He's now 1-7 against the avs in the playoffs for his career

  23. I'm happy for the av's and as i predicted flyers got owned. I think might loose everyone. But so far 2/3 of my other choice teams are doing well..GO AV's!!

  24. I can't wait for tonights game! Hpefully Datsuk will play, we need someone under 50 out there.

    Avril Lavinge??? I don't get it. Now, if you said Celine Dion...

    Well, I've been to the States many times, and I love it. I've been to Portland twice (my friend works there), and think it's one of the cleanest places I've seen. There was a guy who hosed down the sidewalk everynight when I was there. (Winnipeg reminds me of Detroit in that aspect, a smaller Detroit without Detroit's benefits. Winnipeg is just...dirty...)

    Ironically enough, I may be applying for some jobs in Portland as well as Seattle and Vancouver (computer programmer) in the next month or two.

    I honestly would like an NHL team in Seattle and/or Portland. I wouldn't want Vancouver's team to leave though - just a new team.

    Oh, and I apologize to all Detroit fans for the way my Oilers are beating up on the Red Wings. It's not personal, just business. You did give us a scare when we lost our 2 goal lead with 8 minutes left in the game. (deja vu with Game 1).

    Btw - I like Yzerman, and I think he's been the best Red Wing so far. I read somewhere that he might be hurt in the hip? I missed that in the game, might just be a rumor.

    I hate Chelios though, but no surprise there, as he's the kind of guy you'd expect to hear about getting shanked in some dark alley, LoL.
