Agreed with Skobel. Kings in 6. They are just an absolute Juggernaut.

Kings win in 7.

I'm just glad the Rangers are out.

Kings in 5. But I would rather the Devils win.

I'm mad at both teams for screwing up my hockey pool, so now I'm out 20 bucks. I could stay in the top 10 if it's a sweep by either team.

I'll pick the Devils in 7.

Jersey in 6; I think these two teams are pretty evenly matched in regards to supporting players + stars.

Both teams look pretty damn stacked on paper, and in the playoffs have been doing just that. I think LA's record is a bit overblown, they literally played the same team in two different rounds (STL and PHX, both teams play in that team defensive game, not a lot of talent in the forwards, rely heavily on their goaltenders, and when they're not perfect... neither is the team).

I think we go 1-1 in Jersey, 1-1 in LA, then NJ takes the last two.

Additionally, I just want to add. All these hyper skilled Russian players for some reason or another, get this stigma of being of a miserable demeanor... If anyone watched Kovalchuk (who was by all means lumped into the "Oh, he's just a soft Russian; in it for himself") wow, this guy is off the charts.

I think Kings in 6.

But if the Devils win, I might also win $400.

Bah, I hate predicting. I feel like it's a jinx.

But I will say the Kings win, I just don't want to guess how many games it's done in lol.

I can see LA taking it in 6 but I really don't care who wins, I'd love to see either team win a cup.

I want the Devils to win. Bad team last year, veteran laden team, 3 years post Brent and they win the Cup. Promising for us

I was looking forward to a Sutter / Tortorrella rematch.

I will predict Kings in six, maybe five. They're playing like the 2004 Flames but much more talent laden. Probably unstoppable at this point.

Kovy has been great.

But I don't see how that makes Radulov any less of a head case.

I'd LOVE to see Sutter win one, but at the same time I wanna see Marty take the cup. 40 year old goalie winning would be pretty cool.

If it was my money on it, I would say Kings in 6.

I'm still shocked just how easily the Kings have been going thru these playoffs. I'm really happy for them and more in particular Darryl. It will be great to see him get a Cup with this team. The Kings look unstoppable right now, I really haven't seen anything like this for quite some time. Nice to see Gagne get in there as well.

Devils are playing like they're skating in sand, they look bagged.

Even if they somehow pull out a win tonight, series is all but over, just a matter of time...

Looking like Devils could get away with at least one.
