I just sense/feel that Anaheim has this one but I'm interested in hearing from anyone who thinks Nashville is going to win this series.

Depends on goaltending, they aren't winning with Ellis. I guess if Emery is 100%, they have a shot.

The Ducks will win this series easily. I'm a Red Wings fan here in SoCal so I see them play quite a bit. They're coming in with a lot of momentum and they're going to be extremely, extremely tough. Don't be surprised to see them get past the first two rounds.

Nashville in 5. Ducks don't have the goaltending to make it far.

I actually think this could be a really good series. The Ducks have the more talented team but more questionable goaltending. The Preds match up really well against talented teams and can wear them down. If they can contain Anaheim's top line, who knows.

I still agree with others though, I think Anaheim will take it, but I'd love to see the Preds finally get a series.

This is Nashville's best chance to finally win a playoff series. Preds in 5 or 6.

Since being in Anaheim, Emery and Ellis are a combined 15-5-1 and I see them as streaky goalies--extremely tough to beat if they're on. Also, my understanding is that Emery has been somewhat of a model citizen since being here (my son plays youth hockey in the Jr. Ducks club). They've got some young players that have really stepped it up (e.g. Fowler), and with guys like Perry, Getlaf, Selanne, and Ryan offensively, they could go deep into the playoffs.

Ducks in 5.

Well, that was my opinion about the excitement level that this series will generate.

Just being honest about it.

I think that Anaheim is going to really do well in this series. They have 3 big guns in the series, Perry, Getzlaf, and Ryan. I am taking the Ducks in 7.

For some reason, I see this not being Teemu's last season.

Honesty's good. :cool:

For local hockey fans it will generate a lot of excitement. The fan base is growing out here and hockey fans, no matter where they are, are loyal to their sport. Hockey needs teams like the Ducks who are dedicated to growing the sport and the Ducks organization does a lot in the community to do just that (including starting a High School Hockey League). Also, it doesn't hurt having someone like Teemu Selanne on your team. Very well liked and takes whatever time his young fans require of him to say hello or sign autographs--class act all the way. Now when you say the name Perry, I cringe--don't care for him at all. Getzlaf, just a beast. I'd love for him to be a Red Wing.

My 2 cents...

Heck, other than our series (which doesn't really count because I'll watch whether it's exciting or not), Pens-Lightning, and Bruins-Habs, this is the series I'm most looking forward to. Ducks get a little of their own medicine? Yes, please! Weber vs. Getzlaf? Sure! Works for me...

The Preds can grind it out, but if Anaheim's goalies show up, I'm going to give it to them. No idea how many games it'll take.

Nobody lives forever.
Some things never die.
Like up in the land of ice and snow,
They tell me that a Red Wing always flies.

Pekka Rinne with some solid goaltending helps Nashville win in six games.
