    I'll play...

    Washington vs. Toronto - Caps in 4 - was going to say in 5 but I'm so sick of the Leafs coverage I want them out ASAP.
    Montréal vs. New York - Habs in 5 - can see this easily going 7 as the Habs seem to always take the difficult route.
    Pittsburgh vs. Columbus - Pens in 5 - probably not but hoping to see Torts explode.
    Ottawa vs. Beantown - Sens in 7 - Erik the King is too good... and I actually like him.

    Chicago vs. Nashville - Hawks in 6 - Hawks time of the year again
    Minnesota vs. St. Louis - Wild in 5 - really don't follow or like either team but the Wild were really good when I saw them this year.
    Anaheim vs. Calgary - Flames in 6 - I think the Flames are pissed off and want to beat up on anybody.
    San Jose vs. Edmonton - McDavid in 7 - he looks like he wants to show another gear to his career so far.

    4 for 8. = randomness or a blind monkey, I guess for me. Always oddities in the first round-3 sweeps in the west. I predicted a sweep in the west. Only it was Minneesota over St. Louis

    It's gonna be a Ducks vs. Caps final, with the Caps winning the Cup. Finally.

    How good would Shea Theodore (picked after McCarron) have looked on the Habs D these playoffs...

    he would still be in St John's learning the system,,,,, or sitting most games because he "makes mistakes"

    Theodore spent nearly 2-full seasons in the AHL to properly develop
