Seriously ???? .... I expect the Canucks to take the first round series 4-1and unlike the hockey know it alls , I expect it to be a fairly easy series..."We match up well against the Canucks"....I dont see it happening that way ....the team has spent the last 3 months coasting and getting healthy....I expect their toughest task to be the confrence final...No one in the east can match the depth and skill of the Canucks

When it comes to hockey knowledge...ESPN and Experts shouldn't be used in the same sentence.
Perception is 9/10ths of the flaw

I was hoping for the "World Cup" Octopus to pick the winner, but he got turned into calamari. :( Damn.

I do agree that anything can happen in the playoffs last year, but the Kings are not more of a test than the Hawks last year. they have won 3 of their last 10, and have the least amount of goals of all Western Conference team in the playoffs. While the Canucks have won 8 of their last 10.

Not enough respect...

EA simulator picks anywhere? I think it depends on if/when daniel gets back how short the series will be


You trust EA Sports to properly quantify Samme Pahlsson's impact on a hockey game?!

Kassian.... Taylor Pyatt 3.0

Lies. He's more of a Steve Bernier. Hopefully his talent level goes up so he can become like a Taylor Pyatt.

I feel like Daniel's return may be extremely important for this series. I think that If the Canucks and get a couple of pretty goals past Quick early on, we might be able to get alot of momentum going and then snag this series in 5 or 6.

Yeah, but it's the dentist prescribing Oreos and corn syrup getting all the business.

I think the key to beating the Kings is to score early and make them do what they dont want to do is open up. It also neutralizes the BS after whistle crap.

Quick, Doughty, and Kopitar are the obvious threats. They will do their thing.
If we can keep the x-factor guys from being noticeable this will be a "Quick Exit" for team Hollywood.
Guys like Williams, Brown, Penner, and Carter if he's healthy.

That being said I really don't see this going longer than 6. Quick steals 1, Kings earn 1, Canucks outclass in all areas of the game for the other 4.

Nucks in 6.

Bingo.
First goal takes pressure off our PP too. Nothing worse than being down a goal and watching your PP desperately trying to even it up but instead sucking eggs.

Hey Gaustad was probably picked up almost exclusively to play
Kesler. He could not hurt against Bertuzzi, Abdelkator, Franzen & the other big Detroit forwards...

The part I found interesting was that all of them had the Preds over the Wings.

I'm picking Nashville myself, but I thought someone would take Detroit....

all the people saying what does ESPN know about hockey?

what do YOU know about hockey.

look, the Kings are a good team, Quick is prob the best goalie in the league at the moment. It's going to be a good series.

Canucks in 6.

That's quite the prediction. "someone will win"
5 are picking Canucks: 5, 6, 7, 7, 7

3 picking Kings: 7,7,7


Whoops, mistake! Also, I never said the words "someone will win", I said that I agreed that both teams have a shot.

I love the irony in this, especially given the nature of the thread.

So we are officially in a bit of a silly season, and in general I stay away from the completely crazy rumors that persist on the internet, or in the case of the Leafs having interest in Nabokov or Turco I will occasionally debunk them...however, I have been getting inundated with emails, PMs, and questions on twitter regarding a few rumors that are out there...so here goes.. I will address the rumors and follow with what I have or haven't heard...If you all like this format, maybe Wacky Wednesdays could be a regular feature. I wouldn't do it more than once a week, because I am too busy talking to actual sources and attempting to provide you all with as much unique information as possible.


Too busy talking to actual sources? lolwut

Seriously, only 1 picked Detroit. That is unbelievable, same with Philly. Did ESPN not realize that the Flyers have the Penguins' number this year??? Don't get me wrong, Pittsburgh is an elite team with crosby back, but cmon, give the flyers credits some credits too!
