I voted Marlies in 7, but that might just be me being a homer. The Marlies are looking really good though.

IMO, no one stands a chance against Norfolk in a series. The depth guys are getting it done in a big way. If Johnson and Panik and Conacher get going, that's trouble. Tokarski has been out of his mind but if he slips, Janus is right there behind him. I can see it going the distance but I see the Ads taking that final game.

These teams seem pretty even on just about every part of the game. Norfolk probably has the defensive advantage, but I still see this one going the distance.

It is the CCF everyone is good this late in the season, will be a tough series. Going with Admirals in six, they just keep finding ways to get it done.

MAYBE Zigo if we're lucky. Assuming Kadri doesn't have a separated shoulder, he may be good to go as well.

I think the Ads take this series in 5 or 6. No disrespect to Toronto, but Norfolk has just been in another world.

as is 5. The AHL uses a 2-3-2 format as opposed to the 2-2-1-1-1.

ya it's fairly dangerous for the higher seed, especially if they drop one of those 1st 2 home games. The Marlies and OKC split the 1st 2 games but Toronto used the 3 games at home to close them out.

Gotta think the Admirals take this but Scrivens + the Marlies D will be a tough nut to crack.

Admirals in 7.

I didn't realize Jake Gardiner was playing the the Marlies.

The Ads haven't faced a defenseman like Gardiner. He could be trouble for their forwards.

Norfolk is not a bad road team though. Just 12 losses on the road all season (including the playoffs). As a matter of fact, they had nearly an indentical regular season record home and away (27-9-1-1 H, 28-9-0-1 road), with just 1 road playoff loss, coming against CT.

Needless to say, this is not going to be a walk in the park for either team, but Norfolk gets the edge.

Yeah, so Frattin blew out his knee and is done for the season. Huge blow to an already depleted Marlies team.

To be honest, I'd rather see the Marlies healthy. I don't want the Admirals to trounce them because of injuries. I'd like to see a competetive series....in which the Admirals trounce the healthy Marlies!

Gardiner isn't the type of player who one can assume will single handedly create a massive inpact on another teams production. Jake is going to be a solid player, but Norfolk also has Barberio who in my opinion is on the same level (if not slightly better all around) then Gardiner.

Just because Gardiner was in the NHL this season and Barberio was in the AHL should not be a reflection on which is the better player. Different teams have different development players for their future.

The poll won't allow me to vote (unsure why). So I'll post my prediction here;

Norfolk in 6 games. This team could beat a few NHL teams from this past season.
