Since you asked:

Ldn over Sag in 6
Saginaw has come along nicely since the deadline when I thought they were packing it in and London has seemed average at times since their magical run, plus a few key injuries. Even knowing that I have to go with the favourites here.

Ply over Sar in 4
Plymouth is too big, too strong, too talented and too deep for the Sting. They have the edge in all facets of the game except maybe the net. I expect 3 of these 4 games to be a blowout - but then again what do i know. I have Plymouth as coming out of the west.

Kit over Gue in 6
this one intrigues me. Overall I like the Kitchener team better but there is something about how this Guelph team plays that should scare any of their playoff oppenents. I'd also add that Kitchener is one of those teams that if they get on a roll they could really make some noise

OS over Ssm in 7
This is another series that will keep me very interested. I think Owen Sound is build for playoff hockey and they've been playing it all year. I'm also a big fan of Binnington and the Soo does seem to be streaky team plus the loss of Tolchinsky has me giving the edge to OS.

Bel over Miss in 5
good goaltender battle to unfold here potentially

Bar over King 7
I expected much more out of Kingston and they faded badly in the second half so here is how they might make up for it. On paper I don't have a leg to stand on, but my gut says Kingston makes it close.

Osh over Nia in 6
I like Oshawa to come out of the east. They are big and strong and talented but most importantly as you note Brock they have the depth that Niagara does not have.

Brampton over Sud in 7
Any Stan Butler team would scare me come playoff time. While they might be able to shutdown Sudbury's offense, Palazese might do the same on his own at the other end. This one is the least attractive series in my eyes and could go either way

I would pick Guelph and Soo to win but I just can't see Gibson and Binnington getting bounced in round 1 with home ice. I think we can all agree that Gibson is a better goalie than Sparks and Binnington is a better goalie than Murray. I know Saginaw has some good players but let's not forget that London has been cruising since January. With respect to Saginaw, London should be ready to handle a #8 seed. Plymouth will pick Sarnia apart. Won't even be worth watching.

As for the whole thing I'll say Belleville wins the east and Plymouth takes the west. Plymouth over Belleville in the finals.

London in 4
Knights have dominated all year and Saginaw are much worse, especially since Trocheck was dealt.

Plymouth in 7
Whalers depth edges out the offensive fire power of the Sting.

Sault ste. Marie in 7
Very close matchup, but I think the Greyhounds have better depth.

Kitchener in 5
While they are very close points wise, but with Faksa back and a huge factor is having Gibson. Saving their best hockey for the playoffs I think.

Belleville in 6
I see this series being a strong goaltending battle. The Bulls will outmatch them though due to being a superior team.

Barrie in 5
Colts led by Scheifele, will make this look relatively easy, taking on the young Frontenacs.

Niagra in 7
While the Generals have much better depth, Strome and Ritchie I think will be able to take over the series when it's all said and done.

Brampton in 6
Battalion are quite a bit better, but neither look that great.
