Who would you want to face in the Playoffs?
 
I know this is a bit premature since there is a chance we cannot make the playoffs, but lets say we did make the playoffs who would you want to face in the first round or who would you not want to face in the playoffs.

Who I want: Dallas,Minnisota(if they make the playoffs), Vancouver and San Jose
Who I don't want: Calgary,Nashville,Chicago and Pheonix
Meh: Detroit

What a jinx thread

drugold 03-04-2011 04:06 PM

Anaheim, or the Oilers

DeeMeck 03-04-2011 04:16 PM

Colorado or St. Louis.

JT Dutch* 03-04-2011 04:28 PM

... Without question, Anaheim.

Mike The Franchise 03-04-2011 04:31 PM

Im hoping that both us and the Ducks get in the playoffs and face each other, thats when the rivalry truly begins.

I already mentioned that this is a hypothetical discussion

Orenji 03-04-2011 04:45 PM

Dallas, Phoenix, Minnesota, or Anaheim

Wouldn't mind facing Calgary, Nashville, San Jose

Would be wary of facing Chicago, Detroit, or Vancouver

I just want to get the asterisk by our name first and then we can talk about who we wanna play in the first round.

wabwat 03-04-2011 04:50 PM

Vancouver

Kurrilino 03-04-2011 05:03 PM

I would like to have Edmonton.....

thank you

Ollie Weeks 03-04-2011 05:23 PM

Vancouver.

Anyone but Chicago, really.

DAkings20 03-04-2011 05:36 PM

Ottawa

Puck U 03-04-2011 05:51 PM

1st round, would be nice to play Dallas, Minnesota or Anahiem, I think we can beat any of those teams, but do any of them even finish IN the playoffs ?

Personally I think we also match up really well against, and can beat the Canucks, but I'd rather save Vancouver for a later (2nd/3rd) round to help build that rivalry, plus the fact that they'll most likely remain 1st in the West means IF we played them in the first round we'd be the 8th seed and I'd rather we finish higer up than that :) thanks.

San Jose ... meh they'll lose at some point, don't they always, wouldn't be too bad if it's US that boot's them from the playoffs ;).

Calgary, Nashville, Chicago and Pheonix we actually match up and have played POORLY against for some time ... I'd rather they play another team / each other and beat the snot out of each other before we have to play one of them.

Detroit ... ALWAYS dangerous in the playoffs, one would be stupid to bet against them ever ... and most likely the S/C winner is either going through Detroit (or Vancouver this year) at some point or will be Detroit, so the later we play them the better IMO.

johnjm22 03-04-2011 05:56 PM

Vancouver.

Sydor25 03-04-2011 05:58 PM

For selfish reasons, the Dallas Stars.

redcard 03-04-2011 06:05 PM

Philly.


...........preceded by Anaheim, San Jose, and Vancouver.

Seventyx7 03-04-2011 06:13 PM

Anaheim so I can go to every game. San Jose would be fun too, neither of those teams scare me. Chicago is the only team I'd be really upset about in the first round, and Vancouver wouldn't be ideal.

Telos 03-04-2011 06:17 PM

Detroit or Vancouver. I think we match up well with Detroit and that they are vulnerable. As far as Vancouver goes, we have a lot of experience with them and I am just confident that we can win a 7 game series against them.

TonySCV 03-04-2011 06:30 PM

YVR please. Detroit would be interesting as well, but I want to see a re-match with Vancouver.

fuuuuuuu! you stole who i was going to say lol

I would love to play Phoenix. I know that we "struggle" against them, but we really don't. We are a better team than them and if we get them in a 7 game series theres no doubt in my mind we would win in 5 or 6.

NOT Calgary. We lose everytime we play there.

Would love to get another shot at Vancouver, but I'm not certain we can beat them in a 7 game set.

Not Chicago either.

Give me Phoenix, Anaheim, or San Jose.

Oh, I wasn't disputing that we play horrible against Phoenix. I just think that things completely change in the playoffs, and I REALLY can't see us losing to Phoenix if we ever had a 7 game series against them.
