Four things would need to happen:

  • The Wings beat the Coyotes
  • The Blackhawks beat the Predators
  • The Kings beat the Canucks
  • The Sharks beat the Avalanche
That is the only way the Wings and Hawks would meet in the second round.


I predict the wings to play the blackhawks second round.

Yeah if I were forced to bet on the games I would say Wings, Hawks, Kings, and Sharks would be the winners.

I see both Detroit and LA upsetting their opponents. I just don't think Van is built for playoff hockey, and Nas just doesn't have the offense. LA is young and hungry, the Avs are just not good enough to beat the choke artists, that will happen in the second round.

Thus Wings Kings in the WCF.

From there I got Wings.

But then again I would have them winning the cup, I am after all a Wing fan!

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock

WEST


1. San Jose vs Colorado --- in 6

2. Chicago vs Nashville --- in 7

3. Vancouver vs LA --- in 7

4. Phoenix vs Detroit --- in 6

EAST


1. Washington vs Montreal --- in 5

2. New Jersey vs Phillidelphia --- in 6

3. Buffalo vs Boston --- in 4

4. Pittsburgh vs Ottawa --- in 7.

Servo, if Nashville ever got that close to the cup it would trigger my gag reflex.

1. San Jose
2. Chicago
3. Vancouver
4. Phoenix
5. Detroit
6. Los Angeles
7. Nashville
8. Colorado

East:

1. Washington
2. New Jersey
3. Buffalo
4. Pittsburgh
5. Ottawa
6. Boston
7. Philadelphia
8. Montreal


WEST: I say Colorado over San Jose in 7 (Jumbo and Nabby are already on the golf course), Nashville over Chicago in 7 (Chicago's only chance is to get early leads. If they play defensive, low scoring games, Rinne will OWN Niemi...or Huet if Q is foolish enough to start him), Vancouver over LA in 5 (LA is still a year away from a deep playoff run), and Detroit over Phoenix in 6 (Yotes goaltending will steal them a couple games, but they don't have the experience or depth to beat a Detroit team that's finally healthy).

Vancouver over Colorado and Detroit over Nashville in the second round. Detroit over Vancouver in the Conference Finals.

EAST: I say Washington over Montreal in 4 (Won't be pretty or close), New Jersey over Philadelphia in 5 (Goaltending will be the factor, plain and simple), Buffalo over Boston in 5 (Ryan Miller's going to do well this spring), and Ottawa over Pittsburgh in 7 (Hey, I can hope, right? Ottawa is underrated and s***tsburgh might underestimate Brian Elliot who's been great, while Fleury has been average at best lately.)

Washington over Ottawa and Buffalo over New Jersey in the second round. Buffalo over Washington in the Conference Finals.


Detroit over Buffalo in 7 for the Cup.

I'd add the Hawks to that. I honestly think one of the top 4 in the west will win it. Any of those 4 against any eastern team should prevail in the finals. The toughest part will be getting out of the west.
It's better to be considered temporarily insane than permanently stupid.

So by beating Phoenix, we would play who, San Jose/Colorado winner?

If two same-seeded teams reach the SCF who gets home ice? I understand that a higher seed will take home ice but say the Wings meet the Sens in the finals, who takes home advantage? Obviously 1v1 is Caps for winning the Pres, but 2v2? 3v3? etc...

It's the same-old same-old.
