This series is gonna something. It reeks of seven games! I can never really tell if a team is for real until they have won, or gone deep in the playoffs. I am very curious to see how the Blues manage the different pressures of the SCP. Game on boys

The Sharks really wanted to face the Blues. What a comeback last night.

This series will come down to goaltending and the Blues have the better goaltending. Despite their lack of playoff experience, the Blues will take this series in 6.

I was hoping the Sharks would play the Nucks. With the diving and crying those two teams are made for each other. Oh well.


Don't have a strong feeling on this one. Blues in 6?

This series is going to be AMAZING. Cannot wait. I think it's going to be a battle to the very end. Sharks will win it in 7.

The Blues' goalies can win this series for them. If the Blues win they'll come out of the series with confidence. Anything can happen then.

If the Sharks win it'll be by attrition. They'll be pretty well beat up.

Damn, I don't know WHO I want to win.

I was hoping for this matchup. Blues and Sharks match up well - series winner will play the preds or wings in the conference final.

Thornton vs. Backes, this should be good.
Both team are big and can play mean.

I rather see the Wings play the Blues than the Sharks down the line.

Blues in 6.

Sharks need to keep their sticks active in their bench to only loose in 5.

I hope this series is a seven game war of attrition, with the winner needing life support to get to the second round. If I have to root for a team, it'd be the Blues. Thornton is a bigger ****** than Backes (barely).
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

That is indeed the $64,000 question.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Both teams have weaknesses:

San Jose

1. Mediocre goaltending at best.

2. Mediocre offense (17th in regular season).

St. Louis

1. No playoff experience

2. Poor offense (21st).

I'm going with San Jose because I think that the playoff experience is a big factor.
Do or do not. There is no try

I don't much care whom wins this series.

I just want it to go 7 games, with lots of non-serious injuries for players on the winning team.

Damn, I don't know WHO I want to win.

This, all over the place. I like how the Blues are built, but after the game against them last week, they have a few flop-artists themselves. Also, their incarnation of the bandwagon fan has been pretty bad; not Chicago or Pittsburgh bad, but bad nonetheless. I think something has to be be said for the Sharks having worlds more playoff experience than the young Blues. The Blues are the better team and will definitely have their time, but I have a feeling that drawing this opponent in the first round might have "upset" written all over it.

I completely agree with you, if the Sharks win it will be tooth and nail, leaving them pretty much beat to hell. For this reason alone, I hope the Sharks do win. I like the Blues and hate San Jose with an unbridled passion, but I'd rather have a lower-seed, beat up Sharks team advance than a higher-seed, more talented, confident Blues team who could very well be a Round 2 opponent.
