Pick a hero (one Shark / one Pred)

For kicks, assume your team wins and predict the hero**. Then assume your team loses and predict the hero for the other team. Shark fans and neutral fans are encouraged to play. No other rules apply***, other than I have a personal preference for the less obvious choices. Including rationales might be nice too.


Preds

Shea Weber: Two phases of his game have me picking him. First, I predict he emerges as the big, shut-down D-man that punishes people, clears the crease, breaks the cycle and maintains composure in heated situations. Even more importantly, his wicked shot from the front (particularly on the power play) is too much for Nabs/Toskala to handle, particularly with Scott Hartnell parked in front of them. He scores 2 game winning goals and 4 in the series.

Sharks

Steve Bernier: Big, emerging power forwards tend to pound the Preds and in this series he drives a stake through our hearts while we spend all of our time negating the big centers and Cheechoo. He scores one game winning goal and has a hat trick in game 2.





__________
** Anyone that predicts Patrick Leahy, provides an accurate rationale and is correct wins a really fabulous prize.

***Edit: After the first response, posters are further encouraged to pick current roster players (smartass mods are exempt obviously)

Surely you forgot Krivo... he was an all-star when Marian was still learning how to put on his jockstrap.

Preds: Vokoun, will give the Preds the chance to win some low scoring affairs

Sharks: Thornton, game breaker peformance day in and out. Just depends on which Joe Thornton shows up that game.

Predator: Kariya had a bad PO last season, but avenges himself.

Shark: Bernier will get icetime skating against the third D pairing and will benefit from it.

The obvious answer would be Volkun and Thorton. Whoever wins this battle will determine the ultimate outcome of the series. Good Luck guys.

say what? he was our best player, easily, last PO's.

Predator: Dan Hamhuis. Just like Adam Banks in D3 mighty ducks from all those years ago he dives in front of the open net to block a bullet from cheechoo (after vokoun has gone walkabout again for no good reason other than to chase around the puck like its a giant red ball and he is a toddler) to send game 7 into ot and then assists on a long breakout pass to kariya and legwand on a 2 on 1 to win the series!

Shark: Joe Thornton. Absolutely takes us apart especially on the powerplay after the preds go penalty happy yet again and the awesome sharks pp rules supreme.

call me crazy

Nashville: Leahy, strong PK leads to timely blocked shots and chips in with a helper even strength....

Sharks: Joe Thornton, this guy is as strong as they come down low, a multiple assist night leades the Sharks to a game one victory in Nashville....

Its going to be one of these two IMO:

Preds - Forsberg
Sharks - Marleau

Whoever plays better will likely win the series.

Preds: Legwand (he's been huge all season long)
Sharks: Guerin (he's a big player who could excel against us)

Nashville: Weber - If there's one player that can step up at both ends of the ice, it's this guy. His play will be critical on the PP, PK, and hopefully even strength shutting down some of the Sharks' big guns. Honorable mention to Legwand for same reasons.

San Jose: Marleau - Sharks' Captain absolutely destroyed Nashville in last years playoff series. 7 goals I believe in a 5 game series = ouch. I expect the relatively cool streak he's been going through to end quite dramatically. Marleau, Cheechoo, and Thornton could make this a short series if they can pour on the goals.

Nashville - Alex Radulov I think that this kid is going to be a playoff dynamo every year and this year he's going to show why I think this.

San Jose - Joe Thornton: If he plays like Joe of the regular season the Sharks win, if he plays like Thornton of Boston's past then not so much, but he'll carry the Sharks if they wanna win this one.
