Man, this series would be incedible to watch. I have no idea who would win. I'd probably give the edge on aper to the Rangers, but if the Flyers' offense manages to get under their skin, then it could be them.

I'll go with he Flyers. I think Bryzgalov will have a good series against a less offense-oriented team.

With Nash, I give the offensive edge to NY. NY has a stronger D. Goaltending isnt even debatable.

Didn't NY dominated Philly in the season series? I know it's not the same, but I didn't see these teams as being 'close'. Flyers always seem too focused on "beating them up" and forget they need to win, vs. NY.

I'd predict NY in 6.

Giroux, B. Schenn, Couturier, Voracek, Simmonds, etc, all have a very good chance at improving this season. Not to mention I think Luke Schenn will finally find his game. I do think that the series will be a blowout one way or another though. It's just tough to decide which.

I'll take the Rangers. The Ranger always have the Flyers number. The Atlantic is weird, NY beats Philly, Philly beats Pittsburgh, and Pittsburgh beats NY.

A bit bias but I'll go with the Rangers, better D and goaltending. Flyers advantage on offense is even smaller now with Nash on the Rangers.

Offense always sounds good, but defense wins in the playoffs. Rangers.

Philly is going to have to prove they can play better in their own end if they want to go far in the playoffs.

Rangers in 4.

NYR is the worst possible matchup for the Flyers. 6-0 last season. They just aren't a scary team anymore like they used to be with Pronger and Richards(ultimate Rangers killer). Can't think of one facet of the game the Flyers are better at than the Rangers. Perhaps a better bottom 6.

Rangers in 7. I'd say if Bryz can play well, it's possible

Voted Rags. But in a strange twist, the Bruins team runs into the rink with steel chairs and hit every player on the ice eliminating both teams from the playoffs. The Bruins theme music then starts to play as they stand in the middle of MSG, arms raised, and the crowd booing.

Bruins were pretty much run over by the Rangers last yr.

The Rangers have defense and goaltending, and now their offense can skate with the Flyers. Philly needs to make some changes if they want to compete further. Too much vested in forwards.

Rangers in 5 or 6. Philly hasn't beaten NYR since February 20th 2011. Since that game Philly has been outscored by more than double at 36-17.

Rangers in 6 games. Flyers offense is good enough to steal two games from Lundqvist and the defense, but the Rangers prove to be too much.
