Ok so they have just annouced the round 1 playoff schedule, which starts on Wednesday!

In the East we have:

Boston vs Montreal
Washington vs New York Rangers
New Jersey vs Carolina
Pittsburgh vs Phillidelphia

In the West we have:

San Jose vs Anaheim
Detroit vs Columbus
Vancouver vs St. Louis
Chicago vs Calgary

What is everyones bets?

For me I would say:

Boston in 6 (as much as I love Montreal)
Washington in 5
New Jersey in 7 (as hot as they are, Goaltending is key)
Pittsbugh in 5 (Syd is going to put on an impressive play offs)

Anaheim in 7 (big upset)
Detroit in 6 (Even though their Goalie is a bit week, they still have tons of fire power)
Vancouver in 6 (GO CANUCKS GO! Kesler, Burrows, Sedinsx2, Luongo we have this)
Calgary in 7 (Iginla is going to improve and carry his team)

And who do you think are going to win everything?

I am going to say Vancouver after playing New Jersey in the finals!


Keep the shinny side up!

Boston in 5 (this Montreal team doesn't have the cajones of last year's team that managed to take the Bruins to 7)
Ovechkin in 6
New Jersey in 5
Pittsburgh in 7

San Jose in 5
Detroit in 4 (sorry, Blue Jackets, but just take it all in for now)
Vancouver in 6
Chicago in 7 (this is going to be one hell of a series. There are so many story lines here: Khabibulin going back to Calgary for a playoff game since winning the Cup in '04 and how will Kane/Toews do in their 1st playoff appearance, for instance.)

All 1,2,3,4 winning. Hmm...I honestly can't justify anything else though.

Quoting ZBBYLW (Thread starter):
the East we have:

Boston vs Montreal
Washington vs New York Rangers
New Jersey vs Carolina
Pittsburgh vs Phillidelphia

In the West we have:

San Jose vs Anaheim
Detroit vs Columbus
Vancouver vs St. Louis
Chicago vs Calgary

Boston in five.
In the most entertaining series of the opening round (good ol’ smashmouth hockey, with scrums after every whistle), Boston’s talent is simply too much for Montreal with its internal soap opera to overcome.

Washington in five.
For the Rangers to have any chance of winning this series, Lundquist has to play perfect hockey, Theodore has to have a meltdown of all meltdowns, and the shaky rangers defense has to shut down Washington’s potent offensive attack. While both option #1 and option #2 are very likely, the Rangers defense has been their Achilles heel the entire season. The only reason why any game in this series is close is because of Lundquist.

Carolina in six.
The red hot and underrated Hurricanes, who have probably been the NHL’s best team of the past month, shut down the skidding Devils. St. Patrick’s Day will prove to be Marty’s only party this year.

Flyers in six.
Penguins have quietly turned their season around since firing Therrien, but Philly’s size and aggressive forecheck will beat up the softer Pens. Carter and Richards will prove to be a better combo than Malkin-Crosby, and all of Canada drools as they see their likely 2010 olympian checking center (Richards) shut down the potent Malkin.

Second Round:
Boston over Carolina in six
Philly over Washington in six

Conference Finals:
Boston over Philly in six

Sharks in five.
Anaheim’s been all over the place, and the Sharks just have too much talent for the ducks to overcome. Even if Jumbo Joe doesn’t produce, Sharks will still be able to chomp on the Ducks.

Columbus in seven.
I might be crazy, but Columbus has all the hallmarks of a team primed for a first round upset. A tight, defensive first team backed up by Steve Mason (who should be the Hart Trophy winner this year, even if he doesn’t get it) shut down the Red Wings’ offensive attack and get a couple of lucky puck bounces to baffle Osgood.

Vancouver in five.
Another red-hot team, everything is coming together for the Canucks, and Luongo’s goaltending will be too much for the up and coming Blues to overcome.

Chicago in five.
Calgary has been on the skids since the trade deadline, and the young and fearless Blackhawks take advantage of Calgary’s tentative play and make them pay.

Second Round
San Jose over Columbus in six
Vancouver over Chicago in seven

Conference Finals
Vancouver over San Jose in Seven

Stanley Cup Finals
Boston over Vancouver in six

I'm going with:

Boston in 5- I just don't think Montreal's heart is in it- plus, Boston has been too dominant this year.

Washington in 6- I'm not sold on Theodore being able to carry this team far, but Varlamov's too inexperienced to use as a starter.

Carolina in 7- my upset pick in the East.

Philadelphia in 7- they'll be motivated after blowing their shot at home ice, and I think they have more playoff grit than Pittsburgh. Still- this should be a fun series to watch.

San Jose in 6- I think Anaheim will be a tough opponent for San Jose, but they've been too inconsistent at times this year.

Detroit in 4- Congrats on making the playoffs Columbus- maybe next year you'll have enough experience to win a game.

Vancouver in 5- St Louis is hot, but if I remember right- Vancouver had a better record down the stretch. Also, Mason must be dog-tired for the Blues- I think he's started something like 33 straight games for them. I also doubt Kariya will be in any form to play if he's avaliable- yes, he's well-rested, but how rusty must he be?

Calgary in 7- I can easily see Chicago winning in 7 here as well though.

Just my $0.02

There won't be a single Canadian team past the first round. Sorry to break it to all those 'die-hard' (lol) Canucks fans, but St. Louis is going to take the series. They've had the Canucks number for quite some time... and the Blues aren't a one-man show.

Hell will freeze over before those eternal underachieving Vancouver Canucks get themselves back into the Cup final, let alone win the Stanley Cup!

No Dallas Stars this year, the Flames are going through their annual 'choke-a-thon'... and the weather is nice outside... playoffs 2009 will be an after thought.

Alright, I'll have a go at this.

Boston over Montreal in 4. The Bruins look solid overall. Montreal had to click their heels and make a wish to their fairy godmother just to get into the playoffs. They do not look like a playoff caliber team, unfortunately (they were my preseason pick to win it all).

Ovechkin over Rangers in 6. The Rangers have some bite in them now that the ratbastard is back on the team. It will not be enough, though, as Ovechkin scores 7 and assists on 4.

Carolina over Dirty Jerz in 6. Carolina is playing inspired hockey right now. Jerz looks pretty beat down.

Pittsburgh over Philly in 5. Philly couldn't secure home ice by even getting one point against the Rangers. Now they have to face the much more talented Pens. No chance.

Anaheim over San Jose in 7. Another year, another bust for San Jose. I am no fan of Anaheim, but they have been extremely hot the past couple months while San Jose has only played mediocre hockey.

Detroit over Columbus in 5. Columbus wins game 2! Unfortunately they lose the other four. Neither team is playing well right now, though, and if Detroit's goaltending doesn't improve and quickly, Columbus could pull a shocker.

Vancouver over St. Louis in 7. St. Louis is playing like it deserves to be in the playoffs. Unfortunately, so is Vancouver, and Vancouver is a better, deeper team.

Chicago over Calgary in 5. Calgary will win one at home to keep from being swept, but they have been in a free fall lately while Chicago keeps moving up fast.

I would love to see a re-match of 1994. But, this time, all the refs can be hired from Western Canada instead of the Tri-State area like back then. When the butt of a stick ends up under a helmet, that is a penalty. Unless it happens to a certain red, white, and blue sweater wearing team.

Other than that, Calgary will put up a hell of a fight. That one is hard to read. San Jose will struggle and go out with a whimper. Detroit will hand Columbus their a*ses. I don't know anything about the East.

What happened to Osgood or whoever their goalie was last year?

I am rooting for Pittsburgh to beat the Flyers. If they lose, then go Flyers!

Somewhat unrelated, but GO SIXERS, TOO!! Wouldn't it be thrilling to have PA represent all 4 major league teams in the championships for 2008-2009? We already had the Phills winning the World Series and the Steelers winning the Super Bowl. How cool would it be to see either the Pens or Flyers winning the Cup and the Sixers winning the NBA title?

I know... dare to dream. Besides, I don't think the Sixers stand a chance against LeBron and his Cleveland Cavs anyway...

Go Pens!! (Go Flyers if they should win! I have to root for anything Pennsylvanian)

Hasek started and when he choked, Osgood stepped up and stood on his head a couple times to play a major role in the Wings winning the cup. I don't see that happening this year. That being said, Wings in 6.

Quoting ZBBYLW (Thread starter):
Boston vs Montreal
Washington vs New York Rangers
New Jersey vs Carolina
Pittsburgh vs Phillidelphia

Montreal over Boston - Biggest upset of the playoffs. I'm reading everybody else picking Boston, and killing Columbus in the west in 4-5 games... yet they have the same amount of playoff experience in recent years. Yeah they got an 8 seed last year, but lost in 7 to the Canadiens. As much as the Canadian teams aren't as strong this year, don't count them out of any series.

Washinton over the Rangers - Sorry.. I just hate the Rangers.

Devils over Hurricanes - No doubt..... probably in 5.

Penguins over Flyers in 7.... gonna be an awesome series.

Quoting ZBBYLW (Thread starter):
San Jose vs Anaheim
Detroit vs Columbus
Vancouver vs St. Louis
Chicago vs Calgary

San Jose over Anaheim - Another great battle like the Pens-Flyers that will probably go 7.

Columbus over Detroit - Will probably go to overtime in game 7 to be decided. Teams have been on eachother with strong play all year.

Vancouver over St. Louis - Goes 6 games

Chicago over Calgary - Was hoping the Jackets would end up with Calgary in the 6-3 matchup (would have been excellent for Jackets) but both fell down the stretch. I see Chicago in 7.

The west is just too tight all around this year.

That's too bad. That being said, I still wouldn't want to face Detroit again in the Cup series! The first 2 games of the series last year, they made the Pens look more inept than my high school team!  scared 


It doesn't matter who goes down. Someone has to step in and step up. One person going down should not mean that they no longer have a chance; that it's time to hit the panic button and/or abandon ship. They just have to change their approach somewhat.

Hopefully they can do that again, but God help the opposing team if they do!

Might as well add my picks for the rest of the playoffs. Again, here is what I think for the first round:

Quoting Texan (Reply 6):
Boston over Montreal in 4.

Ovechkin over Rangers in 6.

Carolina over Dirty Jerz in 6.

Pittsburgh over Philly in 5.

Anaheim over San Jose in 7.

Detroit over Columbus in 5.

Vancouver over St. Louis in 7.

Chicago over Calgary in 5.

Next round:
Boston over Carolina in 6.
Washington over Pittsburgh in 7. Ovie v. Crosby and Malkin. Cannot wait!

Anaheim over Detroit in 6. Anaheim has goaltending. Detroit doesn't.
Chicago over Vancouver in 6. This series sounds exciting.

Boston over Washington in 7.
Chicago over Anaheim in 6.

Cup Finals:
And in this matchup we have two of the Original 6 going against each other with the result...
Boston over Chicago in 6! And the Bruins bring the Stanley Cup back to the city, if not the arena, that such greats as Ray Borque and Cam Neely built up. And yes, the only reason I have Chicago winning the West is so we can have an Original 6 matchup in the Finals. Somehow Washington v. Anaheim just doesn't sound as good as Boston v. Chicago.

Boston vs Montreal
It's gonna be rough, it's gonna be dirty. It's gonna go down to the wire. Montreal in seven.

Washington vs New York Rangers
Washington are to slick, speedy and confident right now to get bogged down by the rangers. Caps in 5.

New Jersey vs Carolina
Another year, another series and devils will find another way to win. NJD in 6.

Pittsburgh vs Phillidelphia
This series has the potential to rival the Habs vs Bruins. I'm confident Philly will put the paddles to Crosby and co. Philly in 5.

San Jose vs Anaheim
This is going to get dirty. SJ in 6

Detroit vs Columbus
The wings will crush Columbus. Sorry but 1.5 players a team does not make.

Vancouver vs St. Louis
Canucks will find themselves and take it is 6

Chicago vs Calgary
Calgary are already fading so this series at this point looks like it's the 'hawks' to lose.

71 Post contains links ZBBYLW : Well its good and bad, I think the rest is going to be good for the Canucks. Get Sundin and Salo back and it should be good to go! Here was the party
72 Smcmac32msn : " target=_blank>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzmI2...LsRM4 Deja Vu??? Completely clean hit (I'm a Jackets fan) unlike all the comments. Its just pa
73 BlueElephant : There doesn't seem to be much discussion about hte Penguins.. In my opinion...Marc Andre Fleury is probably the best goalie in the playoffs at the mom
74 GQfluffy : Yup. The BJs are going to be good, but I think the playoff intensity caught them completely off-guard. They'll learn, quick, how it takes a bit of lu
75 Post contains links A332 : Either way, the Canucks have to face a real team in round 2... meeting up with the Blues was a cake walk, and although I expected a better showing fr
76 ZBBYLW : Luongo is playing really well as well. Last night he kept the Canucks in it. He Made 47 saves last night, including 18 in the OT. Did a great job kee
77 LH423 : I've got a broom if any of the Habs fans would like it! I actually didn't expect the Canadiens to fold the way they have. I thought for sure that whil
78 STLUAL747 : I may trying to find a silver lining, but I wouldn't call that sweep by the Canucks a cake walk. Every game with the exception of game 2 was a one go
79 TheCol : Way to take it Vancouver!!! That's what I'm talking about! Yeah, we all really partied it up last night...Vancouver Style!!! Apparently, it was a wild
80 JFK69 : Friggin Rangers......Could they ride Lundquist anymore??? Hey caps, Where the hell is the scoring!!!!!!!
81 YooYoo : They are not helping my hockey pool!! Never trust the Rangers or their fans ! ....They do have a nice Jersey.
82 Arrow : Well, Chicago isn't laughing. They thought they'd broken the Flames backs with that 3-goal surge last night (and so did I). But the Flames came throu
83 Stretch 8 : The Caps are finished. No team in the east (including Boston) will beat SJ or the Wings in the Finals. The Big Red Machine rolls to another Cup for Ho
84 NIKV69 : That could be a major problem with a girl. I know they totally suck in their own zone on Defense and Avery could have got a 10 minute major for that
85 JFK69 : Couldn't agree more. The caps had their chance in Game one when they had 3 off of Lundquist but sadly, theodore was in net and he can suck it. If the
86 Emirates773er : It ain't a joke anymore, Ignila is carrying his team forward with the win last night. The flames r on!
87 Seb146 : But the Blues put up a hell of a fight! I was expecting at least a 5 game series, the way the Blues were playing. This sweep stuff and waiting sucks!
88 GQfluffy : The Caps don't have Tomas Holmstrom, Johan Franzen, or Dan Cleary. The three best in the league and creating havoc in front of the pipes. If Anahiem
89 Arrow : You sure about that? I thought if SJ wins, Canucks play the Red Wings. Anyway, it looks like Anaheim definitely had SJ's number. The Sharks looked a
90 Us330 : Sharks continue to choke! What do the Sharks and the Titanic have in common? They both look good until they hit the ice in April (read this on ESPN.co
91 ZBBYLW : They do. Thats what he said if you look through the "nucks" "orca" "'hawks" etc... That is a great joke. Big Joe Thorton is looking really slow out t

95 JoeCanuck : First good chortle of the day...thanks.
96 Ferengi80 : I've got to put a wager on a Bruins vs Blackhawks final. I'm stunned at how easily the Bruins beat the Habs. My gf is a major Habs fan, she really tho
97 Itsjustme : Am surprised there are no comments about the too many men call in the final 90 seconds of the Wings/Jackets game. Maybe that's a tribute to the contri
98 USPIT10L : No, he's not. He (and the rest of Flyer Nation) accused Crosby of diving, while Derian Hatcher drug Sid around like a rag doll with his stick in Cros
99 Itsjustme : I'm confused. What does Ken Hitchcock, the Columbus Blue Jackets coach have to do with the Flyers and their abuse of Crosby?
100 Hjulicher : I love it! Redwings win the series. No contest.
101 Garnetpalmetto : Because prior to being the Blue Jacket's coach he was the coach of the Flyers when the incident USPIT10L mentioned occurred. Once again the best seri

103 YooYoo : oh give me a break!!.....Surely you meant the Sens? I'm loving this series, can't wait till tonight.
104 USPIT10L : Sens fans can be annoying, but I feel for their futility. It's not the fans' fault their management is incompetant. Why would you hire Bryan Murray t
105 A332 : Sens fans don't go around calling themselves 'Canada's Team' like some other blue & white fan base does. Thing is, now the Canucks nation parrots tha
106 YooYoo : That's because they aren't. I've never called the Leafs Canada's team, BUT, when i watch a Leaf game in an opponents arena, it can sometimes be calle
107 A332 : Exactly, and neither are the Leafs. That's what I mean. The sheer arrogance, sucks (for lack of a better word).
108 Seb146 : Nor have I heard that. Even in 1994, I don't recall anyone saying they were "Canada's Team." The Blue Jays, however.... I know, this is not a basebal
109 JoeCanuck : Chicago put the flames out tonight...they were the much better team, and the Ducks flew while the Sharks floundered...again. Another early exit for th
110 ZBBYLW : Well this should be entertaining. Chicago is on its way to Vancouver to play the Canucks, hopefully the game 1 is Thursday or Saturday as my girlfrien
111 JFK69 : Two big game 7's tonight with the Rangers trying to hold back Ovie and Broduer trying to show his late season run was relevant. Brashear out for 6 gam
112 Seb146 : It's about damn time! My Canucks have been sitting WAY too long. I have to say: Game 1 will not be close. I don't think the Canucks will be effective
113 ZBBYLW : Yea this city has Canuck fever right now. I can not wait for the game to start. I hope we win Game 1 as that is the last playoff game I will be able
114 Texan : While I didn't get the number of games right except for Boston over Montreal, every single pick right! Wish I'd placed money on this... Texan
115 YooYoo : i did ok, i guess.
116 ZBBYLW : I did ok. In the east if we ignore the last 2 minutes of the New Jersey game that was correct, as was everything else. In the west I just got Calgary
