    Agree for the most part. Except Det weaker in goal & Boston is on fire. Montreal/TB is tough call. COL got fireworks but they can't allow so many goals in playoff time however MIN not a huge scoring threat. & Anaheim sweeps DAL. I'll go w/ STL--better D.

    Kings & Bruins in the finals.

    My heart is pulling for a ANA/PIT finals, but I'm going with CHI/NYR.

    Brendan Shanahan gave up his role as head of the NHL's Department of Player Safety to become president of the Maple Leafs.

    The Flyers threw a long contract at MacDonald as I thought they would, at least it wasn't another nine figure deal.

    Given the way that MacDonald has played for the Flyers and his age, I think that is a good signing. Flyers also signed their prospect Shayne Gostisbehere today, so their D prospects for the next few years are starting to look better.

    Hate that Andy Mac contract because now Niskanen is probably going to want 6 mil a year.

    Mason not playing first game in the Flyers/Rangers series, didn't even make the trip to New York. NOT good!

    Paul Maurice was rewarded by the Jets for his fine work with a four year contract.

    The Kings-Sharks series start Thursday and don't play until Sunday. Fine by me but I thought they played every other day until it was done

    My picks would look something like that if I watched teams other than Chicago and Detroit (lifelong Wings fan, living in Chicago).

    I would give the Wild more of a chance if we had more solid/consistent goal tending. I think that's our weakness.

    Bryz has been doing relatively well; he isn't the sift that I saw him as when he was with the Flyers.

    Nah. No-one wants to get ejected at the beginning of a playoff game.

    I live in Vancouver and since the Canucks are out, most people don't give two s**ts about the playoffs.

    Pity; I have no friends who aren't Canucks fans...gah....have to watch the Kings alone..:'(

    What a melt down by the Flyers in the third. That was some incredible work on the PP by the Rangers as well.

    The wild give up a 4-2 lead to lose 5-4 in OT isn't a great way to start either.
