Just reading your GDT. Was just going to wish you all good luck,it should be a good game.....but I read some things that got me going. Here is my response: it puts a lot of pressure on the outcome when all you are playing are
Finger biters &
This will be a tough game..Sharks really need to Hammer the Nucks D all night. Between Desi, Burish, Wingels, T.J. and Clowe they should be able to wear them.out a bit. Canucks are a one line team right now but Their D and Goaltending will be a good challenge.
I'm not saying that the Blues aren't a good team, and I'm not saying they won't make the playoffs. I'm just saying that trap-teams are eventually neutralized.
Barring major injuries, I predict that the winner of the WCF will be one of the following, in alphabetical order: Blackhawks, Canucks, or Sharks. My wild card is the Ducks (yuck, I feel dirty now).
Sure would like to see a win, but I bet niemi gets shelled.
Hopefully I'm wrong.
I'm a Nucks fan and I'm not feeling good about this one. We're missing 2/3 of our second line, had almost no one playing in Europe during the lockout and have come out of the gate pretty rusty, have blown 2 goal leads in the third period twice already...
Like you guys, this is our first taste of top notch competition so either way it should be a great game.
But check out our GDT; we win that one hands down.
