Some majorly optimistic predictions for the Sharks, but the Stanley Cup can be won by anyone that makes the playoffs, which is of course, the definition of the playoffs. If they felt the top 16 teams in the NHL didn't all have a chance of winning, they would have changed the playoff format a long time ago. I hate being wrong, so I'm going to predict that one and only one team will win the Cup, 15 others won't; the team that wins will have earned it and be praised as champions. The teams that don't will all be disappointed, but realize that they must prepare for next season.
5 outta 8 isn't too bad in the 1st round. Montreal was a big win for me.
Yeah, mine aren't looking too great either. (I didn't post them here, but they are registerred on another website).
I wound up with 5-of-8 correct in the first... but long-term my picks are shot... my cup finals was NJD vs. DAL. Doh. (My correct picks were TB, TOR, MTL, DET, and SJ... while I was wrong on NJ, DAL, and VAN).
