chizip- I find your avatar rude and disrespectful. It's one thing to route for your team, but must you be childish about it?

Guess us Canuck fans will have the last laugh. See you in Vancouver on Wednesday you cocky

being childish is the best part

and yes I can't wait to root for my team on Thursday

it should be a fantastic series, it's a shame one of them has to lose in the 1st round. whoever wins this series though I'll be rooting for to win the Stanley Cup, although niether really has a realistic shot.

but hey you gotta believe

good luck and may the best team win (the Blues)



oh and popangel, i like your sig too

Cu-choke on that suckers.
Well, if we're going to base playoff performance on one game, more specifically the last game that the number one goalie played in, how about this... oh wait I forget what happened to Ozzy in his last game... did he get a shutout... no? You're telling me he lost... badly? What kind of statement game is that?

Eno-ugh crap talk... let's see some action...

That's not entirely true... I've never cheered for the Senators or Flames; anyway, just take a look at the "Leaf nation"... either you're a fan or you detest them with all the life in your body. However, under special circumstances, such as when only one Canadian team is left in the playoffs, MOST (except Canuck fans ) hockey fans North of the border will root AGAINST the American team... that's just how it is... come on, it's been ten years, what do you expect?

well cujo, its not just 1 game, its just that game was a great reminder of past failures. oh and ozzy's last game was a very solid 2-2 against chicago, he saved our bacon as the defense played like crap.

This guy also agrees about cu-choke. (He is the one guy who actually knows something about hockey at espn)

Special to ESPN.com

Edmonton Oilers vs. Dallas Stars
Fans of both teams know the history of this matchup. Edmonton will play tough, as they always do, but the Anson Carter trade weakened them. It will be more evident in this series than during the regular season. Dallas should be OK here. They are a little banged up, but they are playing well and should sweep the Oilers. Dallas getting home-ice advantage is huge. And I think Marty Turco's play is the difference. He is a champion. Stars in 4.

Anaheim Mighty Ducks vs. Detroit Red Wings
I can't believe the Wings did not seize home-ice advantage with games in Columbus and Chicago to end their season. I think that could prove fatal to their Stanley Cup hopes. Anaheim is a much tougher opponent than Edmonton. Anaheim has good special teams, is good at faceoffs and has a good goalie. Anaheim is good enough to beat Detroit. In fact, I would take Jean-Sebastien Giguere over Curtis Joseph if I were starting a team right now. The Wings might be fooling me. Maybe they will tighten things up in the postseason like the legends they are. But, for now, they are too loose. I can't believe I'm typing this, and it's a reach, but I have no faith in Cujo. Anaheim in 6.


Minnesota Wild vs. Colorado Avalanche
This is a good matchup for Minnesota. They can focus on one line and one player: the Peter Forsberg line and Joe Sakic. There is not much else here to be frightened of offensively. However, the Avs counter with a very good blue line. Minnesota can skate and works harder than anyone. But I wonder if they have another gear for the playoffs. It seems like they just played 82 playoff games with their intensity and effort. I say they are pooped. I'll take Colorado in 5.

St. Louis Blues vs. Vancouver Canucks
It will be nice to see one of these teams in the second round, because it will probably give them some needed confidence. Vancouver is not playing well right now, but remember Detroit won just one of their last 10 regular-season games last year. Imagine how nasty it will be between Chris Pronger and Todd Bertuzzi in front of the net. I think St. Louis' talented forwards will win out here and win despite some shaky goaltending. St. Louis in 6.


looks like this board will be pretty sad in about 2 weeks, except for me and avsgirl that is

Cool. When it's all said and done, we'll still have 3 Cups in 6 years to show for it.

Ok the simple fact that you are taking any advice or really reading ESPN gives you NO credibility!!! Go find a real hockey site (www.sportsnet.ca or www.tsn.ca) Espn is the worst hockey channel EVER!!!!

Ya this guy knows what he is talking about....

it wouldn't have to be in canada.


maybe you've never been to the land of 10,000 (more like 15,000+) lakes....but in minnesota EVERY kid grows up with a stick and skates.


it's just the way it is.
