Sharks and Nucks, really hoping the Nucks would get the Kings. Sharks had a weird season this year not really sure what to make of them. I wanna say Sharks but I feel like they have no leaders and will bend.

Sharks don't look all that good outside of Niemi who has carried them most of year

I don't see them getting past Nucks

I agree, there's no X factor to that team that believes that could beat the Canucks. Niemi's been great but Thornton and Marleau will crumble.

Not just that when watching them it is ugly hockey a lot of the times

No creativity , No speed (Fairly slow team) , etc

The core has aged and guys like Coutuer/Vlasic/Pavelski are too few

at this point it looks like the leafs will end up facing the bruins. that series will probably be done after 5 games.

Avs canned Sacco.


I'll miss his 5 forward PP unit.

too bad that the Stars and Avs fired Joe and Sacco. They might finally end up being good teams and hard to play against.

Thoughts about the Kobasew goal that did not count?

I really want the B's to win in OT/SO. That makes my ideal matchups happen: Pens-Isles and Leafs-Habs

The fact that this thread isn't named "The Final Countdown" is a travesty.

Damn, B's have scored twice in a matter of 17 or so seconds between the 2nd and 3rd.

I want Boston to win in OT to set up Pens-Isles and Leafs-Habs.

Bryzgalov's comments were priceless at the flyers locker clean out. The guy should quit playing goal and go to comedy.

Basically that the Philly writers don't know anything about hockey.

Yep.

Of course, he's 100% right. The vast majority of any city's sports journalists are far from experts on the sports they cover. Sensationalism sells.

I think it's more than possible they can beat them.

Sharks won the season series 3-0 I believe, and Luongo looks like their starter.

Must of missed that, last I heard Luongo was the likely starter.

Either way, Sharks have a chance to upset. Nucks have lost their last 5 out of 6 games. Sharks have been on fire since the TD.

I wouldn't put money on it, but I don't think it's impossible.

Link below is what I was going off of, in regards to Schneider.

If it were any team other than the Sharks, I'd agree with you. I still think they have a chance, but then the other part of my brain says "Hey, it's the Sharks. They'll choke in the playoffs like usual." So right now, I don't have a clue what to expect.

Well, just remember that the team they are playing always chokes in the playoffs too.

Oh I know... it will be interesting. I'd probably rather the Sharks win, because I don't see a chance in hell they could take us in a series. However, I think if Schneider got hot, the Nucks could beat us. Although, I'd still be pretty confident going into a series against them with both teams healthy.
