With Detroit Chicago having just gone into overtime, Chicago is locked into 6th. If the Sharks lose later today, they stay in 8th, and we will hopefully stay in 1st place. There would then be the very distinct possibility of us playing the same 3 teams as last year on our way to the cup final, albeit in a different order:

1 Vancouver - 8 San Jose (Van)
2 St Louis - 7 LA/Phoen (St L)
3 Phoen/LA - 6 Chicago (Chi)
4 Nash/Det - 5 Det/Nash (Nash)

1 Van - 6 Chi (Van)
2 StL - 4/5 Nash (Nash)

1 Van - 4/5 Nash

Each of these series outcomes is not just possible, but arguably even the most likely scenario (possible exception in my mind being Detroit beating Nashville). It would be absolutely incredible if we passed through the same 3 teams this year as last. And just imagine if Boston won out in the east!

My friend, is montreal canadiens fans and he is keep saying that there will be rematch -vancouver vs boston SCF. but i think not because Rangers, penguins can beat boston in second round. So In the finals it will be Vancouver vs Rangers.

sure, they COULD. in that potential playoff matchup, i'm taking Nashville. A more well-rounded and playoff experienced team. I think Pekka will stand on his head in goal and the Preds will find a way to get it done. Now with some offense, that team is DANGEROUS. Great home ice atmosphere, too.I see Nashville making it to the Western Conference Finals.

Funny, none of the 1994 teams the Canucks played (except the Rangers) are in this year's playoffs. The Kings and Blackhawks are from the 1982 run.
Only in Canada, do Leafs fall in spring!

Here's what I see happening:
2nd round:
Van defeats Chi
Det defeats StL

WCF:
Van defeats Det

STL has an atrocious record against LAK (1W3L).

If it stays this way, I can see LAK upsetting STL and playing us in the 2nd round.

Athletes today are scared to make Muhammad Ali Statements.

I think the Blues will lose in the first round. They seem to think they are very good and even think of themselves as an elite team after 3/4 of a good season. They will be back down to earth very quickly comes playoff. People have to realize that a team is not considered as an elite team unless they are great so years, not just one year or half a year!

This would be the perfect, and most ideal matchup for us in the 1st round.
Basically all 7 other teams in the playoff in the West can do some damage, except for Phoenix.

That gif (not the sig, I put that together myself) is from Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, which is one of the most strange and disturbing comedy shows you'll ever laugh at.
