Default Playoff prediction thread

Okay, here we go, another year of fearless prognosticating. As a reminder to everyone, NHL reseeds after each round so highest seed plays lowest seed.

East;
#1 PITT v. #8 NYI
#2 MON v. #7 OTT
#3 WAS v. #6 NYR
#4 BOS v. #5 TOR

West
#1 CHI v. #8 MIN
#2 ANA v. #7 DET
#3 VAN v. #6 SJS
#4 STL v. #5 LAK

Quarters;

East;
#1 PITT v. #8 NYI; PITT in 6
#2 MON v. #7 OTT; OTT in 7
#3 WAS v. #6 NYR; NYR in 7
#4 BOS v. #5 TOR; BOS in 6

West
#1 CHI v. #8 MIN; CHI in 5
#2 ANA v. #7 DET; ANA in 6
#3 VAN v. #6 SJS; SJS in 7
#4 STL v. #5 LAK; LAK in 7

Semis
#1 PITT v. #7 OTT; PITT in 7, Cooke's throat "accidentally" stepped on in game 3
#4 BOS v. #6 NYR; BOS in 6

#1 CHI v. #6 SJS; CHI in 6
#2 ANA v. #5 LAK; LAK in 7

Final;
#1 PITT v. #4 BOS; no shortage of storylines here, BOS in 7
#1 CHI v. #5 LAK; CHI in 6

Finals;
#1 CHI v. #4 BOS; CHI in 6

How often do the #1 seeds face each other in the finals? I like CHI and PIT but I think one or both will get upset after the first round. Both should have easy first rounds though.

I know, I went chalk. I was thinking about picking Vancouver to come out of the west, but I just couldn't see the Sedin sisters doing it. Maybe if Kesler was definitely healthy.

Don't be so sure about the Pens having an easy series against the Isles - I hope you're right, but I see it going 6.

Did you think the #6 seed would play the #8 last year? The highest seeded teams always get bounced in the playoffs.

Pens in 6
Sens in 7
NYR in 7
Bruins in 6

Hawks in 5
Wings in 6
Nucks in 7
Kings in 7

Very tough to predict future rounds at this point, but here goes:

Conference Semi's

Pens over Sens in 6
NYR over Bruins in 6
Hawks over Wings in 7
Kings over Nucks in 5

Conference Finals

Pens over NYR in 7 (series of the year)
Hawks over Kings in 6

Cup Final

Hawks over Pens in 7

Much of this is what I think the Pens are capable of. However, I see them slipping up somewhere.

You have even less faith in the Pens than me. Respect!!!!! Excellent to see non-Homer Pens fans.

Next round West Winners:
#1 CHI
#5 LAK

Conference Finals East Winner:
#1 PITT

Conference Finals West Winner:
#5 LAK

Stanley Cup Finals Champs:

anyone who copies my scantron is going places for free

Here goes:
Quarters
- pitt over nyi 4-1. tavares is a beast but they don't have the depth to trade offensive body shots with such a deep roster.
- montreal over ottawa 4-3. It's going to be carried largely by offensive defense, but I bet conacher gets hot.
- dc over nyr 4-2. Momentum carries them easily through the first round. Lots of scoring.
- boston over toronto 4-2.

-chicago over min 4-1
- anaheim over detroit 4-1
- sjs over van 4-2
- stl over lak 4-3

Quarters
- pitt over bos 4-3
- was over mon 4-2

-chi over sjs 4-2
-stl over ana 4-3

Semis
Was over pitt 4-3
Stl over chi 4-3

Was in 6

Pencils down.
Sorry I stopped giving color commentary, my girlfriend and I are leaving for new orleans for a week in solely a few hours and she walked in mid rant. Some other time.

See everyone soon

I respect your opinion and this isn't meant to start any poop. I picked the Rags to win in 6. I agree that the Caps enter the playoffs as one of the NHL's hottest teams. They are absolutely a good hockey team, but when you look at their record of non-SE teams, it's far from impressive. Beating up on SE teams is nothing to hang your hat on. I know Ovechkin is on fire right now, too. But I don't see Torts allowing his players to leave Ovie wide-ass open above the left circle for easy PP goals. Also, possibly the most important thing a team can have going for them in the playoffs, the Rags have a hot goalie in Lundqvist. After a so-so start to the season, I believe he's regained last year's Vezina form. Unless the Rags play awful D (which I don't think they will), it's going to be tough to consistently put more than 2 passed Lundy. It's possible, but again, will be very tough.

I certainly wouldn't be shocked to see the Caps win, but I think the Rags take this series.

I cant believe you all have the ducks beating detroit so easily! Detroit wins in 5 or 6 games then most likely loses in the next round IMO.

I agree! I picked the Wings in 6. Wings are playing good hockey right now, and the Ducks after a ferocious start, have been around .500 hockey for a while now.

I can't believe everyone in this thread picking the Kings. I have a St Louis / Chicago West Finals and Pitts / Bruins East finals. Also have some financial implications on the line, picked the Blues to win the cup at the beginning of the year in a little town called Vegas
