Moose in 6.

They're probably gonna be very close games though, with Lehtonen and Flaherty being two of the top goalies in these playoffs.

Wolves in 6. If Lehtonen plays and good as he's capable of, Wolves in 4.

I'm gonna go with Wolves in 6...I just think it's their year, and I am not saying that just because I am a fan

But you are thinking it because you're a fan.

I'm thinking Wolves in 4.

Says the Chicago Wolves fan from Illinois with the Chicago Wolves avatar and a signature that says "Wolves for Calder."

I think the Wolves are the favorites here but I think the Moose will prevail in 6. The 2-3-2 system pretty much suffocates any home team.

Wolves will take this in 4 or 5 as long as Lehtonen is 100%. If not they will win it in 7.

The MTS Centre is going to be insane. The crowd will be a major factor in Mantioba, but I'd have to say as excellent as the Moose have played this past month the Wolves' superior roster should win them this series.

As long as it's not a sweep I'll be at game five next Friday night, should be fun - I've never been to two Moose games in one season before let alone two in two weeks.

I am the worlds most cynical fan though, I see the opposing team score first, I basically think the game is over (I think that's my 25 years of conditioning as a Cubs fan)

as long as the Moose get the split in Chicago, they can win in 5. There's just this awesome feeling I have about them. Flats is on his game and the chemistry has never gelled as much as it has this season. Honestly though, this game is going to 7 games, with the Moose prevailing. With the Winnipeg crowds behind them for 3 straight games, Chicago really doesn't have a hope in hell as far as I'm concerned. You can say that St. John's was easy, but Rochester sure wasn't, regardless of injuries. That's just a sorry excuse for the Amerks not playing to their potential.

Was at Friday's game, if the Moose get that crowd for their home games, they are going to be tough to beat at home. I thought Rochester would beat the Moose, so who knows. Do not underestimate this Moose team, Series is gonna be good.

Years of conditioning as a Canucks fan leads me to believe the Moose will go up 3-0 in this series, then blow a gasket and lose the series 4-3 as Lehtonen gets hot.

I can't bear to get my hopes up for anything more.

I don't think the canucks have ever blown a 3-0 series lead.

They have a few times come back from a 3-1 deficiet though.

This is true, but they've blown 3-1. I just can't help but see the Moose as a baby version of the Canucks... and therefore I can see them blowing it.

That being said, if the Moose are anything like the Canucks, they do better as the underdog. Manitoba is also getting clutch goaltending. So this should be a good series.

I'm sorry, but the Moose aren't the Canucks. And don't have Marc Crawford as coach. Carlyle will make sure if they're up 3-0 that they'll close it out in 4.

^ Exactly.. I just don't see the Moose choking as long as Carlyle's coach. When Smyl was coaching though, sure..

This under the assumption that Manitoba is in a position to choke...
