I'd probably go with the Sens because it means they're continuing to slide. Then I'd go with the Sabres because the Caps have a much better ROW number. They've been screwed by shootout that won't exist in the playoffs.

(if a mod can make a poll that'd be cool)
You sir, are a good man. We will retain it.

The Sabres. We sucked against the Sens this year and after last year's playoffs I don't care who's missing for them I don't want to play Washington.

I'd go Caps, Senators, Sabres. NYR have a clear advantage in goal over the Caps/Sens assuming Henrik is back in form. Wouldn't want to play Miller in Round 1.

I want absolutely no part of the Capitals. Especially if Backstrom comes back.

My ideal final standings:

1. Rangers
2. Boston
3. Washington
4. Pittsburgh
5. Philly
6. New Jersey
7. Ottawa
8. Florida

Slim chance Washington catches Florida but it's definitely possible.

I would rather play the Caps then the Sabres, when Miller is on he is on as you can see from the 4-1 loss the other night.

Though Neurvith will have a sick playoff series against us then Semin and Ovechkin will turn it up, I think we can beat them and get them back for the last 2 playoff series!

Sens, Sabs, Craps. The Craps are like a ticking time bomb. At any minute things could click for them and they could go on a tear. Hell, they've already been shaping up. I want no part of them. Buffalo will also be tough because Miller could easily stonewall us. We match up best against the Sens because they have weak goaltending and our defense would match up decently against them.

I'm confident we could take anyone of the Sabs, Caps, OTT, or FL in the first round, however my main concern is with the Rangers game right now. They been playing .500 hockey and don't look that much different from the teams we saw enter post season for the past 2 years.

No powerplay to speak of, sputtering offense, defensive gaffes and breakdowns that immediately lead to pucks in the back of our net.
More than anything else, i'm finding Lundqvist's crappy play of late very troublesome. He's been more than adequately backed up by Biron this season. I can understand a bad game here and there, but he's been off for weeks now! What's the story?

Enough with the accolades and praise. If this team is going to take the next step, it has to start with Lundqvist making the transition from a great regular season goalie, to a great PLAYOFF GOALTENDER. So far in his career the latter has not yet been accomplished.

Our Team's in Trouble!

Most of them probably can't even grow a playoff beard! Gabs can and Rupper and Prust...a few others.

Duby stache is going to take over the world.

MDZ can't without looking like Crosby probably.

Steps most likely can't.

Hags probably can't.

I'm pretty sure if Feds tries his cheeks will bleed.

We might have to send them some donations and some glue.
