Well, it's shaping up that the Pens will have the #1 draft pick, and ironically to likely pick the player being touted as "the next Lemieux".

Let all of us in Pittsburgh pray.    ::)

Sorry man.

The Wild did thier best by whooping St. Louis for ya, but it was too little too late I guess...

And as Scott pointed out earlier, if the Wild had managed to win half of their league leading 20 Ties, they would have had 10 more points, which would have translated to 93 points, the Seventh Seed and a showdown with the Sharks, but ALAS.  

It was not meant to be this year.

Here's to hoping there is a next year... and congrats to Zholtok and Bomber who get to keep playing with Nashville.

So I haven't been following hockey at all this season as you may have noticed by my lack of participation in this thread, but now that the playoffs are rolling around, I guess my bandwagon ass better start tuning in to see how my Ducks fare in defense of their Western Conference title.   8)  Hopefully the Kings make some noise in the playoffs this year too...

So where are my teams currently seeded?  Think either of them has a good chance at the Cup?  I'm sure one of them's going to finally win it all this time.  The Ducks were SO close last year, that I'm sure their playoff experience and hot goalie will bring them through to the promised land this time.  So you guys better watch out, 'cause SoCal hockey is in da hizzouse!

P.S.  Sorry to any of you whose hockey teams aren't going to make the playoffs this year.   :-*

My playoff tickets are on the UPS truck as we speak on the way to my house! Sorry to all Oilers fans, but I think us getting in will hopefully have a very positive impact on how hockey is perceived.

That said,  Bomber will get some ice time, but you guys can have Benchtok back for all I care!

Well that makes no sense...   ???  How'd you pull off a tricky little scam like that Brent?

Now if someone would please show me the real playoff schedule, with the Ducks and Kings involved, I'd be much obliged.  Please hurry too, 'cause I don't want to miss any of their games.  Thanks!

Go Ducks!  2004 Stanley Cup champs!   8)

Turco comes back from his suspension and the STARS finish the season with a 5-2 win over the Blackhawks.

We play the Avalanche in the first round. I think the STARS can take them. I'd rather face the Avs sooner than later in the playoffs.

My thoughts...

Boston over Habs (3-0):
A good goalie in Boston = a REAL good chance this year... props to Raycroft on his first Playoff Shutout.  In his first Playoff game.  As a rookie.  Marc-Andre Fleury who?

Avalance over Stars (3-1):
Welcome back Marty!  Little rusty are we?

Detroit over Preds (3-1):
Welcome to the playoffs Nashville!  Scoring 16 seconds into the game!  Awesome!  BUT, obviously someone forgot to tell you that Playoff games last 3 periods, just like the regular season  :P  Seriously though, Detroit has a good track record in losing in the first round, so you've still got a chance.

Evil over Calgary (5-3):
Stupid Canucks.  Ugh.  They better keep scoring goals if they want to win.  Dan Sieve-ier is gonna give up a lot of them...
