Somebody had to start this thread... So here we go again. What you guys think about this year? I think it's freakin' awesome. We've got so many new scenarios, and the best 1st round series in the past few years is back after a one year hiatus, Oilers vs. Dallas. Let's see, here are my predictions: Ottawa over NYI : 5 games NJ over Boston : 6 games Washington over TB : 6 games Philly over Toronto : 7 games Oilers over Dallas : 7 games (yes, a huge upset) Detroit over Anaheim : 5 games Minnesota over Colorado : 7 games (another upset) Vancouver over St-Louis : 7 games I'm anxious to see your perdictions. We'll go over it once the playoffs start.
