2011 NHL Stanley Cup Play Offs Thread

I guess this might be a bit early, but after tonight everything is set in the West.

It's play off time, folks! Hide your wife! Hide your kids!

You're right, but there's a pretty good chance that we will know after tonight. POST (Play Off Series Thread?) titles can be changed if need be, but I'd imagine if it's still up in the air after tonight Trade Legwand will wait until tomorrow

You're right, I was having a blonde moment.

Guys have them too.

Well... the morning after last year's Game 1 I woke up from a dream that we had lost 2-1, and believed it really happened. I didn't remember that we had actually won 4-1 because I got TANKED quick. In fact, JohniusMaximus was there. There were pictures of me asleep in the floor just inside of the front door...

So "ish" basically means I'll stick to beer

Going into the playoffs, I miss Cube and the minutes he would eat up.

Blum= more dynamic, better puckmover, smarter overall with the puck. Seriously the guy rarely shows any indication of being a rookie. Boullion might have been more steady and provided a few big hits but I'll take Blum any day of the week right now.

Just think the last few years how much PP time Boullion has got. Thank god Blum neutralizes that.

I worry if a d-man goes down since we don't really have a 7th dman with a single game under his belt for us this year. Of course, Blum jumped right in but I wish we had a true 7th.

Has anyone heard from Cube? Any progress? Did Dr. Trotz perform the autopsy?

I thought it was announced he was done for the season, but I can't remember where I heard/read that. I want to say it was during a game broadcast

That's a good point. Not sure what we would do then. Probably go get Laasko or Aaron Johnson from the Ads would be my bet. That's a terrifying prospect.

Still playing 18 minutes of playoff hockey is different than regular season hockey.

Maybe it's just my nerves. But looking at how much Weber/Suter play per game on average, then Klein then it's a big drop to the rest of the guys makes me somewhat nervous.

Not really, it's just intense pretty much 100 percent of the time compared the the regular seasons where teams take some games easier than others. We have played lots of intense and important games down the stretch and Blum has handled them like a vet. I expect the playoffs to be no different.

Laakso played in one game this season. He's totally ready to be the 7th d-man.

Totally forgot about that- I feel so much better. Plus we could just recall Belak from waivers and put him back in his natural Dman position. Our options are nearly endless!

How about Marty's status??? PREDS CANNOT, CANNOT, CANNOT throw in another 5 s.o.g. performance in a period against a team who can get 5 s.o.g. in one minute. I'm also REALLY hoping we find out why #35 was chosen over #39 in goal.

Let's get some play off talk going in here.

What teams are you guys pulling for in these match ups? Personally I'm going with:

Nashville over Anaheim
Phoenix over Detroit
Chicago over Vancouver
LA over SJ (simply because it would be a weak team knocking out a strong team)
Boston over Montreal
Pittsburgh over Tampa
Buffalo over Philly
Washington over NYR

edit: here's the schedule http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=5...id=DL|NHL|home

Chicago over Vancouver(I think the Nucks are already planning the parade)
LA over SJ
Boston over Montreal
Tampa over Pittsburgh
Buffalo over Philly
Washington over NYR

This is purely who I "want" to win, not who I think will win.
