Hawks vs. Preds 1st round
 
If Hawks beat Detroit Saturday in regulation they get 5th seed.

What would you put our chances at to beat Preds in series?

25%?

madgoat33 04-05-2012 09:59 PM

78.45% assuming bolland and toews are back

Cullksinikers 04-05-2012 09:59 PM

50% chance of winning the series.

Why don't you list playoff percentages for every possible match up since we have no idea?

I'm pretty sure they won't above 30% when you do.

Hawks/Kings: Hawks 80%
Hawks/Sharks: Hawks 44%.
Hawks/Coyotes: Hawks 90%
Hawks/Preds: Hawks 25%.

Hawks need to stay out of box (Preds PP kills us)

That makes sense. Considering all these games would be without home ice, there is not that much of a difference.

Preds - 48%
Sharks - 55%
Kins - 52.35%
Coyotes - 60%

25% is still a joke. Hawks have a ton of playoff experience. Bring Tazer back and I like our chances against anyone in the 1st round. I would give the Hawks the edge on any team with home ice.

Projections like these are absurd, it's always 50/50. It's playoff hockey.

Cashville 04-05-2012 10:30 PM

I want 2009/10 revenge! Beat DET on Saturday!

Game 5 that year may have been the best game I have ever been to. I'll do a repeat of that.

BBH 04-05-2012 10:31 PM

I think our chances are 50/50 like Culliksinikers said. Against the Sharks 60/40 if we can solve The Octopus. Coyotes 45/55. Kings 40/60.

A win in OT would give the Wings a point for the OT and we would finish 1 PT behind the Wings ... I think you know this and I like the sarcasm!!

UsernameWasTaken 04-05-2012 11:09 PM

I'll go with "too close to call". I love our offense (when it's 5 on 5) and I'm mostly fine with our defense, most of the time... it's definitely a winnable series...but who knows???

FakeKidPoker* 04-05-2012 11:23 PM

Is that right?

What is the first tiebreaker? Season series? Or games won in regulation OT? I thought Detroit has that...

Agree with this 100%. Our Blackhawks can win these rounds! Come on boys, LET'S GO HAWKS!

Hawks need to stay out of the box against any team because the team's PK is abhorrent. Yeah the PP has sucked and people complain about that to no end. The ineffectiveness of the PK is what is going to do this team in.

Hawks will most likely be 6th so I don't understand why the speculation would be Hawks/Preds. How likely is it exactly that the Hawks beat the Wings in regulation at Joe Lewis? Not very.

Games won in regulation or overtime.

If the Hawks win in OT/SO, they end up with 1 less point than the Wings.
If the Hawks win in regulation, they end up with 101 points, the same as Detroit. Both teams would have 39 wins in regulation/overtime, so the next tiebreaker after that is the season series (which Chicago has already won)... and thus the Hawks would get the 5th seed ahead of the Wings.

I disagree I think the Wings will rest everyone important, and the Blackhawks will accidentally win. The best thing the Hawks could do is kick the puck in there own net a few times.

This is a good response!

In my non-HFBoards life, I'm a lawyer and do litigation...when clients ask my what their potential risk is, the answer many of us lawyers in my field are forced to give is "you've got a 45, 50, or 55% chance...and at this point I"m not sure which one it is".

I wouldn't mind driving back down to Nashville to outnumber the Preds fans 2-1 again :nod:
