NHL Playoff Race!

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Masamax, Mar 21, 2004.


  1. So what does everyone think of the playoff races? In the east as usual all the excitment is in the top 3 as several teams are in the hunt for divisional titles. In the west things are looking locked up except for South west. The race is for the final 2 spots between 4 teams. Nashville won tonight putting them in 7th place with 7 games left. Los angeles has lost all momentum and is sliding hard. St. Louis is maintaining a fair pace to stay in the hunt. The Oilers are right now only like 3 points out with 8 games left and haven't lost in regulation in their last 10 games. LA and the Oil play twice in the next week and a half, so things are gonna get interesting.

    What does everyone think? I am rooting for the Oil of course! :)

    Prior to yesterday's win over the hapless Rangers, my Flyers were seeded 3rd in the East...since it's 1 vs. 8; 2 vs. 7; 3 vs. 6; 4 vs. 5-
    My eyes scrolled quickly down to the 6th seed.
    Damn, it's Jersey.

    Currently, my boyz are #2(after yesterday's win thus sending the Rangers to the golf course).
    Anyway, IMO, everyone in the East wants the #1 seed in order to play the Isles. Be careful what you wish for...I've seen too many #8 seeds take out many #1s!
    ;)
     
  3. Devils win and if they don't they still win because I said so.

    I'm a Caps fan. (done laughing,yet?) Ok. So I guess I would like to see Boston do well. I like Nylander and Gonchar.

    Ahem... Sundin, Mogilny, Nolan, Roberts, Nieuwendyk, Francis, Leetch, McCabe, Belfour.

    Blue and White all the way! The mayor of Ottawa (who is trying to bar all Leafs fans from the Corel Centre) can go jump off a cliff! :smug:

    Let's see. . . . . Yzerman, Hull, Shanahan, Lidstrom, Hatcher, Chelios, Schneider, Lang, etc. :meh:

    Talent runs deep on this team! Depth=key to playoff victories.

    Definately going for the Oilers. Hoping for a Flames versus Oilers series. That'd be well worth watching.
     
  12. I just got home from the Kings Oilers game.

    At least Luc became the highest scoring left wing in NHL history.

    Now if we could just make the playoffs.....

    :bawl:
     
  13. Isles all the way. If not, at least we finshed better than the Rangers.

    here's a math problem:

    Bure+Jagr+Lindros+Kovalev=......Nothing! HAHAHA!

    I say we just get rid of the rangers, then take all their players salaries for next season and buy a small European country. Maybe Sweden or the Chech Republic. They both have a good output of hockey talent and quality bass products and this would make both these resources more readily available to the U.S. (Just a thought).

    The Rangers have been the money pit in the middle of Manhattan, haven't they? What's this, six or seven straight seasons of missing the playoffs despite having the highest payroll in the league?

    The Rangers are like a rotisserie league team--full of superstars--but they lack a good team chemistry, and so they keep getting outworked by their opponents.

    Did you see the movie Miracle? Aside from the on-ice action, one of my favorite scenes was when Herb Brooks met with the USA Hockey officials and told them we wasn't going to just assemble the best collegiate players--he was going to invite the players whom he thought would make up a great team.

    I thought Slats would've had a good grasp of what constitutes team chemistry from his years coaching in Edmonton, but he seemed to forget it when he arrived in New York and just continued in the mindless free-spending, money-is-no-object way of his predecessors.

    The Islanders built their championship teams of the early 80s by never trading away any draft picks. I wonder if any team's GM would try that strategy today? ;)

    Leafs all the way. They've got depth, talent and heart. No other team has as much experience as they do. I think it was 9 former captains they now have on their team. Who can top that?

  17. If things continue as they are going, it may be a 3-6 Dallas-Oilers series again! Damnit! ;)
