I know the season series don't usually mean much but I had no idea the Wings had beaten the Bruins 3-1 this season. That may not be as much of a blowout for the Bruins as most think.

The west is an absolute guess, just about any one of those teams could make it to the final and win it as they are all that good.

I don't have much faith in Howard and if Datsyuk/Zetterberg don't play/aren't healthy, they will have a tough time scoring. Unless Nyquist goes insane.

Wants a habs/bruins series. Only matchup that would be fun to really watch in the eastern conference. Of course, don't want to see the habs progress out of the first round - but hard to think that they aren't gonna get by Tampa without bishop.

It's a pretty lame conference out east. On the other hand, the west is gonna be a ton of fun to watch.

I think St. Louis is done in the first round

Pittsburgh done and they possibly fire byslma. Possibly
Montreal beats Tampa
Dallas scares Anaheim but doesn't take it

St. Louis doesn't have the scorers up front right now and they are going in playing badly

So many questions about the Habs/Tampa series.

Will Price play like he did in the regular season or like his career .904% playoff average?
Will midgets manage to still operate with the relatively physical blueline of Tampa?
Will Malone be able to get good enough blow in Montreal?

So many storylines...

I think Montreal can handle Stamkos just fine. Habs problem will be scoring IMO.

The Habs have quite a good team and kudos for them for their consistently good performances over the past while. That said, as much as I can see them making a bit of run, I have to shove reason in the cupboard and go for Tampa Bay on this. This and the DET-BOS series are going to be super fun to watch though.

They should, but they won't. Boston is the NHL's goldenchild for ratings, the further they go in the playoffs the more $$$$ it makes the league, if one of their better players is suspended that harms Boston's shot at the cup which means potentially far less revenue money for the league, no way does the league hurt Boston, remember the saying "what's good for the goose is good for the gander"? it applies here.

Lucic at best gets a hearing and a verbal warning from the league to keep it clean, and at worst complete avoidance.

Besides we have seen all kinds of blatant attempts to injure, most result in anything from a fine to a 5 game ban. The ONLY time a double digit suspension was handed out was to Thornton (a 4th line scrub) for mauling Orpik from behind, everything else doesn't even come close.

I get what your saying, if a a team has a steady goalie in net it allows the D to be calm/relaxed out there which allows the forwards to go on the attack knowing every mistake they make usually won't end up in the back of their net. That being said, it's not fool-proof, just ask the Leafs this season who were confident (I'd even go as far as saying over confident) with Bernier in net yet they got rag dolled for most of this season.
