I see us getting within a point of the Rangers with a win at home and giving a shot to win the division in the final two games...dosnt look great though unless Lundquist is out for longer...

these guys need to start playing consistently...i'm sick of trying to figure out which team shows up...its not even game to game, it fluctuates period to period

well... sliding to 3 you run the risk of Tampa, who is a larger bugaboo for us... and Buffalo is swooning with injuries and the very unfortunate situation with Ruff's daughter.

that being said, if you want the cup you gotta beat whoever comes before you... Buffalo wouldn't represent the type of series that would leave us in a whole with injuries, which has been our problem in the past two playoffs... however, i'd rather have a shot at home-ice in the 2nd round with the 3 seed.

gotta beat who is in front of you though...

yea no doubt ou have to beat the team you are playing. but best case senario does not involve buffalo or tampa. Buffalo is hurt but they will be back before the playoffs. last year showed us who you play early will show later. injuries may not be a problem but pure exhastion will be from chasing thier transitions...not to mention thier ability to swarm when then get a goal. the devils are my chice for the first round but that would entail the thrid seed. I beleive that we can beat anyone but detroit in a best of seven. just a matter of trying to win faster to get that break. a series with buffalo is going to be 7 a series with the devils could easily be a sweep....

I predict many people will file thier taxes on this date. All other predictions are subjective.

i am convinced this team is going to do 1 of 2 things...it makes NO difference who they play

it will be a 1 and done (and 5 games tops) if the flyers team we've seen over the last few months shows up

if the team that we all know they CAN be shows up....cup threat

I predict at 11pm every news channel in the country will open with some dopey reporter planted in front of the post office asking people why they waited so long to file.

Bottom Line: Trying to predict future wins and losses with upcoming schedules is simply foolish. Now..........where's that Eagles schedule so I can get to Vegas?
