So: how are your teams doing?

Here are the teams I picked to move to the 2nd round of playoffs:

LAK (3) - VAN (1)
STL (3) - SJS (1)
CHI (1) - PHX (3)
NSH (4) - DET (1)
OTT (2) - NYR (2)
BOS (2) - WSH (2)
FLA (2) - NJD (2)
PHI (3) - PIT (2)

(My picks are on the left). Philly is really starting to worry me - please, please finish this off soon. Pitts is a dangerous team.

Phoenix is doing very well. I guess that's no surprise, given the disciplined game Tippet preaches.

How are your picks doin'?

Slightly worse, I really thought this was Sharks year for some reason.

I am not doing well

LAK (3) - VAN (1)
SJS (1) - STL (3)
CHI (1) - PHX (3)
NSH (4) - DET (1)
NYR (2) - OTT (2)
BOS (2) - WSH (2)
FLA (2) - NJD (2)
PIT (2) - PHI (3)

My picks are bolded, it seams I'm being punished for correctly predicting every single series in the 2010 playoffs, made a lot of money that year. Losing it all this year

Picks on left

LA - Van - come on LA
SJ - STL - gah I though SJ would do better
Chi - Yotes - WTF Chicago!
Preds -Det - ONe right at least so far

Rangers - Sens - could go either way
Caps - Bruins - COme on Wash
Devils - Panthers - You can do IT
Flyers - Pengs- please for the love of god win the next game


Well if the Flyers pull an epic FAIL and lose I think I will jump off the wagon which will be on fire and jump on the Kings bandwagon for the next round

Torres gets a 25 game suspension!!!!

Granted the inconsistency of these suspensions are much, he deserves this as a repeat offender. He is a dirtbag that needed the book thrown at him. Hopefully this will be enough to rattle the Yotes and give Chicago the upper hand.

Bye bye Raffi.

And LOL at some of the Yotes fans blaming the media (surprise surprise) for influencing the harsh sentence. It's always about blaming the media for something with them. Pathetic.

How anyone can complain that Torres' suspension is too harsh is just mind boggling

He has a rap sheet longer then most drug dealers

Also consider this -- Shanahan and the NHL just suspended a player that plays on a team the NHL owns...

Potential bias from the NHL because of that is what I feared. Glad I was wrong; REALLY wrong

The suspension is a good one. I like the length.

The first thing that the league can do to help reduce head injuries is to hit repeat offenders hard. Basically saying smarten up or go play somewhere else. It worked for Cooke who has been fine this season and is still effective. No reason to think that Torres can't do the same.

People make mistakes, get angry, and sometimes do stupid things. A good example of this would be Keith's hit on Sedin. I didn't watch any of the post game interviews but Keith probably regretted it as soon as he did it. Torres however just says that the hit was fine and it was a "hockey play". Seeing the suspension on Torres I'm thinking Keith will Think twice about doing anything like what he did on Sedin again since the next suspension could be very long and the salary he would soe would be massive.

One of the things this may do is to let other players that routinely carry out borderline hits that they need to reel it in a bit so that they don't end up as repeat offenders.

I have no sympathy for the Coyotes on this because they signed him knowing his history. They had the responsibility to try to re-educate him this season with the tighter rules but they didn't.

I like the suspension, especially considering his history, but it feels a bit like he was made a scapegoat after Weber and Neal got away almost scott free.

The hit was no worse than a few of the others but how many guys do you get to knock out of series or put on IR before you get sentenced to a serious suspension?
I posted this right after the Torres hit (I am so seldom correct that I will gloat just a bit)

Seriously though 10 or more games was easy to see coming. I am sure the NHl realizes that things have been a bit intense this first round and Torres was the nice low hanging fruit the NHL needed to send a message to the Players, teams, and the media . I feel the suspension is just given Torres track record.

the only point of clarity I will need is what monatray punishment do players get for sitting out suspensions in playoff games? I assume in regular season the guys lose their pay checks for the games they are suspended no? How about a player who misses 3 playoff games do they suffer financially Given that they are not being paid for the games (or paid peanuts)?
