I don't believe in picking your poison but let me explain why people would rather play the Yotes over the Canucks.

Phoenix is ridiculously inexperienced when it comes to the playoffs. They look a lot like Columbus did last year, everyone said they had strong goaltending and some decent offense. But the inexperience and the lack any stars will hurt them in many people's eyes.

Contrast that with Vancouver, whose goalie is world-class and just won the Gold medal by saving his collapsing team and proving he can play under immense pressure. Their offense is on fire and they have multiple threats.

The Wings can beat both, but that's why people think the Coyotes would be the easier path.

I thought Phoenix was the better match up until yesterday when my dad brought up an interesting idea. Since Phoenix is Bettmans team and with the s*** they pulled last year to help Pittsburgh win, the fix could be in to give Phoenix a deep playoff run.

My Dad is kinda a conspiracy theorist and I really doubt they would really rig it. But after the no suspension on Malkin and the too many men last year, it kinda makes you wonder.

GO WINGS

Oh I forgot to mention, this could hopefully be the last game Wiliams plays in a wings jersey for a very long time!

Hopefully we play up to the better clubs like we have all year.

Did we get bumped off of NBC? Lame, I was looking forward to watching this in HD. Guess I'll be streaming it instead.



Yeah, so my cable is down... where can I stream?

I don't understand why anybody is afraid of the 'Nucks. Weren't they the same team we beat on the way to the last 2 cups? Luongo has done NOTHING in the "real season". He is great in the regular season, but playoffs is another story. I think all of the top 4 teams will be watching because ANY of them can play the Wings depending on what today's result is of the important games.

None of the 4 teams want to play the hottest team the last 6 weeks. They have only lost 8 points since the break!


luongo sucks in regular season

Yeah,
I live in Texas and I pay for FS-D and still can't watch the games due to market blackouts and restrictions.
Lame, huh?

Anyone that knows a good stream, mind sending a PM?

Hawks announcers

but better than nothing.

Plus the guy streaming is some sort of a moron who babbles and plays music instead of letting us listen to the announcers.

The difference between Columbus last year and Phoenix this year is that Phoenix did not sneak into the playoffs, they are in 3rd place. Also, they don't have a rookie goaltender. Bryzgalov isn't as unproven as Mason was and Mason has shown since last year's playoffs that he's not as good as his regular season implied.

Either way, I think it'll be a good series no matter what team we play.
