    I'm not sure I can deal with another 7 game series - but that's probably where this is headed (unless Lundqvist decides to continue his other worldly play).

    Here are my predictions

    Chicago in 7 over Detroit (I think Chicago won every game in teh reg season, but 3 of them came in shoot outs)
    Kings in 6 over San Jose
    Ottawa in 7 over Pittsburgh
    Rangers Lundqvist in 6 over Bruins

    If Ottawa plays with the kind of physical nastiness they displayed against Montreal then I think you are right on that prediction.

    It's a shame that I have to become a Hawks fan for two series in a row :(

    I was downtown for it. It was pretty crazy. I was actually slightly worried people would riot. Saw a few drunk idiots smash some things, but nothing major. Nothing more than you'd see on any weekend night.

    Nah, it is not Montreal lol.

    Must have been amazing being downtown. Going from that high of being up by 3 with so little time remaining. Then only to lose it. I was in a bar in downtown Kitchener. Not as big. But still, every bar was packed with Leaf fans. A lot of sad people spilled onto King Street after that game. Was almost like a funeral.

    I lived in KW for a bit...now in Dorchester.
    I'm surrounded by Leaf fans at work....we've put many on suicide watch, they're crushed. Hey there's always next year :)

    GO WINGS....Wings in 7

    Leaf fans are cute. I figure about 95% of hockey fans here are Leaf fans. No group of fans can swing between pessimism and over-optimism quite like they can.

    Eat it.

    Wings, b*tch. And I'm watching hockey again.



    But really, I like the Wings odds. They lost 3 to Chi during the year, but as mentioned they came down to shoot outs. I think the Wings are playing much better now than they were then. Luckily.
