I don't necessarily believe it will happen, but i'm picking:

Colorado over San Jose.

3 reasons: 1 - Joe Thornton is a playoff no-show. Granted Dany Heatley might help turn that around, he still may be. 2 - is Nabokov. He did horrible in the Olympics, and he's looked tired and worn-out nearly all season. If he doesn't play VERY well, they won't have a chance against 3 - Colorado's youth. Yeah yeah, experience is everything in the playoffs, but San Jose hasn't been past the 2nd round in forever and I think the kiddies of Colorado could surprise em. I don't think the Sharks will make an underestimation like they did last year, but I still think that the youth could prevail in this one.

what about Colorado's awful defensive play?

Flyers will beat Devils. I've watched two of Flyers-Devils game this season and they looked pretty good.
Detroit Red Wings & Tampereen Ilves forever!

Habs,because some dumb idiot always takes the stupid bet. Also, the regular season record between the two teams wasn't totally out of whack. Never know when a goaltender can steal a series. *Halak*.

I think the X factor in this series would be Anderson, hes stands on his head, it could mean a long golf season in San Jose again.

Besides the Wings (we are technically the lower seed) in the West all I can really see happening is the Preds over the Hawks in 7. I think this series could go either way, but this is the most likely upset because Nashville has the advantage in goal and their defense is great. In the East I can see Bruins over Sabres in 6 because the Bruins are something like 4-2-0 against the Sabres this year.

I picked every series correctly except for the Wash/Montr one.

I thought this would be the easiest series to pick.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I just went through and +1'd all the correct picks in this thread. Good job guys.

Including mindflys correct pick.

Wait, I +1'd a mindfly post? What the hell is wrong with me?!

If you start a new thread within two hours after a Wings game, specifically a loss, YOU ARE WRONG.
