I've said this in earlier threads but I don't understand why everyone wants to play Washington so badly in the first round....
Yes, we BRUTALIZED them in two major blowouts, 6-0,7-0....but at the same time these are the playoffs we're talking about and everything that happened in the first 82 games goes out the door.
Not only will that Washington team have those 2 blowouts in the back of their mind, but they'll also remember last year's series against Montreal. You know they're going to be going 200% to make sure they're not part of another first round upset. I really don't see them bowing out in the first round again to be honest.
They've been playing great playoff type hockey in the past month (as have we). And I don't care what anyone says about his stats this year, AO is still up there with Crosby and Stamkos as an elite talent in the league. I wouldn't be surprised to see him completely explode in the playoffs again.

Now Boston on the other hand, has been playing mediocre and Thomas has certainly come down to earth.

Washington is playing their best hockey of the season. I wouldn't want to play them. We can beat them, certainly, but people are getting a little complacent.

#1 in East
Tied for best road record in NHL
5th most home wins in East (4 way tie for the lead with 22 - Philly has 21)
They are +37
Most GF in East

Goaltending is an issue with Flyers but that's a very good and also very deep team.

Can't always get what you want though! Lol anyone but philly or Tampa. I think we'd match up better than people think against Boston. In just praying we ride this hot streak into the playoffs.

Also, we've only beaten them once this season. I can't imagine the post season would be any different... but you never know, I guess.

If the Rangers play like they have lately, I think they have a shot against anyone.

Ideally I feel we'd have the best chance against Boston. Games between the two are always tight and generally low-scoring. Don't feel we'd be physically overmatched either and Thomas hasn't exactly been matching his early season form of late.

I would hope that if we were lucky enough to be in the Eastern Conference Semifinals against Pittsburgh, that the last thing on anyone's mind would be Matt Cooke.

I think we can take on anyone, just not Philly. They have too much depth for us. But I'm confident we can take any of the other teams to a game 7, maybe beat em

I don't like to play the 'who do you want in the playoffs' game. Any opponent in the playoffs is going to be tough and if the Rangers are going to get far in the playoffs they're going to have to play one or more of the teams people will want to avoid in the first round anyway. I'm a big fan of winning; I just want to see the Rangers get as high in the standings as they can. If they can get up to the 6th or even 5th seed I think that would be a great accomplishment considering it looked like they were sliding their way out of the playoffs a month ago. Luckily it seems the Rangers are getting hot at the right time. If they can keep it up they have a chance to be a tough opponent for anybody.

I want Philly. We are not going to win the cup this year, but beating Philly would be so nice. Their goaltending is atrocious, and they might underestimate us. I could see an upset. Plus even if we lose, I would just love to beat them up physically.

Washington is too hot right now and Ovie always seems to play well against us.

Bostons goaltending is too good.

Pitts would be nice, we could probably beat them in 7 considering either team can't beat each other on home ice.

Tampa is meh. They don't worry me, but they would probably end up beating us. I just picture the Washington series when we were up 3-1 and they came back to beat us in 7.

I don't want PIT. The reffing in Round 2 back in 2008 was brutal and one-sided.

That exactly my feeling. None of the teams are unbeatable and what matters most is how we play not who we play. If we bring our A game we can compete with any team.

Anyone but Philly. I like the way the team is playing right now. We went through our one slump, albeit a long one. It's done, it's over, we're ready for the playoffs. LGR!!!!!!!!!!

The poll should be Philly or Washington because thats who it will most likely be. I'm not sure which one I would want to play.
