They'll linger just enough to be the 8th seed and give us yet another hellish 1st round matchup.

You don't want to play a bruising team in the first round.

Well one could say that I'd rather have players injured in the 1st and 2nd round and healed for the last two, rather than the other way around. Of course those injuries do jeopardize your chances of getting through those rounds in the first place

SJ on the brink of being out of the playoff picture, yikes. Kind of hoping Calgary or Colorado and maybe Dallas make 8th spot if we get 1st in the West.

San Jose would be a terrible 1st round draw. Crossing my fingers for Phoenix, Dallas, Colorado, or Calgary.

Calgary sucks balls. I don't see them making the playoffs. A more talented team (LA, Dallas, etc.) will take the final spot.

I would like these seedings:

1.VAN
2.DET
3.PHX
4.STL
5.NSH
6.CHI
7.SJS
8.CGY (or dallas, or colorado)

VAN vs calgary dallas or colorado - "easy" matchup for the nucks.

DET vs SJS - san jose has a good chance of knocking off the wings or at least softening them up.

PHX vs CHI - phoenix plays well against chicago, nucks play badly vs chicago, so phoenix beating chicago = good.

STL vs NSH - get one of these horrible teams out in the 1st round. also, I think canucks match up better vs st louis, so STL with home ice would give a better chance for them to win.

so the second round would be:

VAN vs SJS
PHX vs STL

then preferably

VAN vs PHX western conference final

I'll be really happy with a NSH/STL first round match-up for sure (a little more realistic).

Check out Stammer's GWG at the boxscore. Look at that PP set-up: the Bolts recognize Ward is playing too far out while the Canes' PK only has one man down low. So as Purcell controls the puck near the point, Marty loads up at the right slot while Stamkos sneaks down low at the other side.

Ward is ****ed because if he goes either way, Purcell will just pass it the opposite way because the PK is giving poor coverage. Ward winds up not moving to either side and Stamkos is given tons of net to shoot at, and he makes no mistake when he receives the puck.

I thought this set-up was sick, so yeah. I'm missing the Sedin magic...

I don't like making these predictions, pretty superstitious, but what ever being realistic I'll say: DAL > SJS > NSH > PIT(finals)

With the rankings Swartzwelder suggested.

I prefer Dallas, and we even play them 3 times this month... enough for each team to get acquainted

Kassian will break him in half send him to the Vancouver Memorial and end him Kleinfeld style.

Stamkos' 47 goals and pursuit of 50 is the least talked about achievement this season. Hope he finishes the season with 55 or so!

Thomas lets in a not so perfect goal...

Sigh... I wish one team in the nhl any team can just beat the crap out of the ****ing goons of those bruins players. Look how many fighting penalties already in this game in just 1 period...

http://www.nhl.com/ice/boxscore.htm?id=2011020975

They are just a disgrace of hockey...tarnishing what hockey truly is and turning it into a ****ing gang fight.
