I am feeling sick rooting for the Quacks but I really want us to play them in the 2nd round badly. It will be an epic So. Cal rivalry. imagine the winner with a bragging right.
Come on Quaks! Beat the Wings so we can have a real rivalry.
I opened this thread expecting the OP to say they have playoff fever.
Frankly, I'm not too concerned with which team the Kings play, as the Kings should take either. The only plus side to a Ducks series is that there would likely be a good portion of the crowd cheering for the Kings, so it would be a semi-home game. I also hate the camera angle for games from the Shark Tank, so playing Anaheim would drive me less nuts watching on TV.
I also would like the Ducks to win, so that the Sharks play the Hawks. Hopefully, San Jose could bump them off. This year I think the Kings would better suited staying in Pacific time if they can help it. I also like the idea of all three California teams to make it through.
Some year, I would love to see the final four in the West as the Kings, Ducks, Sharks and Coyotes. The East final four of the Panthers, Lightning, Hurricanes and since the new East has no other truly non-traditional hockey markets I'll say the Blue Jackets.
