The last thread made it past 1,000 posts, let's do it again!

Well, I don't think this one'll get that far!

Flames are almost certainly fucked. Was hoping we would face Edmonton, but Anaheim is a strong team. We're going to need a miracle indeed...



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

I'm cheering for the Leafs - which means I'm cheering for the Capitals to choke, like they do every year.

Hahahaha! Imagine them winning on the 50th anniversary of losses, would be a national tragedy! I kid I kid. I'll be happy if a Canadian team wins at all this year.

They'd have to be the first President's Trophy winner to be eliminated since the new format for that to happen!

The difference is the scoring is coming from so many more than just Ovi, the Capitals should go further without having to rely on just one guy to score. Ovi is also playing physical and demanding hockey lately and if that transitions well into the playoffs then the Caps are definitely contenders. Plus, the Leafs are the Leafs so...



Go Canucks Go!!!



CHI v NSH - Chicago in 5 Games. Hoping CHI loses but they are just way too damn good.
MIN v STL - STL in 6 games. Would like to see Minnesota win but they've been coming up very short lately.
ANA v CGY - Anaheim in 5 games. Calgary will one game. I know, I'm too nice to Calgary.
EDM v SJS - EDM in 7 games. This should be a great series. The biggest reason I give it to EDM is SJ slump.

MTL v NYR - NYR in 6 games.
OTT v BOS - I can't decide on this one so I will say OTT in 7 games, hopefully.
WSH v TOR - Caps in 4 games because that is my biggest wish.
PIT v CBJ - The PIT in 5 games. I know CBJ did great this year but PIT is too clutch with so much experience.

Wow, thanks alot for the optimism...

Damn, the old NHL thread was my home on this forum a few years back. Glad to see it has returned.

I'm a huge Wild fan so rooting for them obviously. First round picks are:
Chicago in 6
Minnesota in 7
Edmonton in 5
Anaheim in 7

Pittsburgh in 6
Washington in 5
Ottawa in 6
Montreal in 7.
