Who's More Likely To Come Back From 2-0?

Hey Guys,

With the Leafs, Habs and Avs all trailing 2-0 in their respective series I'm wondering who you think has the best chance of coming back to win the series...and why if you have the time.

Only one with a chance is the Avs
They just needs to start playing like they are supposed to this time of the year


Leafs have a minimal chance
sure they could turn it around but i see it as rather unlikely


And habs chances of it are even worse


This serie is virtually done already, Probably the most unbalanced serie in regards to skill between 2 teams and this is probably only serie that will go to a sweeeeeep

yeah the 0 goals thru 2 games in 5-5 hockey sure as hell scares the crap out of me.

Usually when a team have had that good output of goals when playing 5on5 i have learned thru 30+ yrs of both playing and watching that you are pretty doomed.

You may very well have jinxed Tampa by being so cocky, thanks in advance

My summary of Tampa Bay....they play on brutal ice, their coach, Vinny and Sarich have all admitted it. And when the ice is like a shinny surface you have to play like it's a shinny surface and that is what the Bolts do, they don't really have a system they serisouly look to me like a high-flying shinny squad...and so far it's worked.

We will see what happens when the series gets to Montreal, it might still work, might not. Should be interesting.

Habs are in tough.

The Avs have the best chance.. I'm not sure they can do it if Marleau keeps playing this well though.

Wow, they "don't have a system"?! Might as well fire the coaching staff, what are we wasting money on them for? 106 points with no system whatsoever, that's truly astounding.

You guys should seriously worry more about the play of your team, I know I would if I were you. Never seen such sour grapes in my life.

Hmmm... well there's a lot of this kind of side-show blame assignment stuff like the ice surface going around. I dunno, the ice in TB looks a bit brittle and chippy, which has the puck bouncing (equally for both teams), but it doesn't look like it's totally chewed up or soft and slushy, which is what really would slow the players down and affect one team's play more or less than another's (the way the bad ice in Boston could have been construed as advantageous to the Bruins, for example). The *puck* is bouncing, but the players aren't falling (except Markov, but he has other reasons! ) or getting slowed down much.

As for the "shinny system"... well, I can almost see that: for example, a guy like St.Louis, who is roundly hailed as a very responsible two-way player, for example *is* doing a lot of big circles looking for breaks (aka cherry-picking) which isn't normally associated with playing good defense. But before any TB fans get all riled up thinking "hey, those sore loser Habs fans are calling us cherry-pickers playing shinny", I add: it IS a gameplan, and it's an awfully good and effective one that the Habs are playing right into. St.Louis is pressuring the Habs D, they're making mistakes all over the ice and the Bolts must sometimes be falling out of their skates in amazement when the puck is just handed to them and they don't even have to work all that hard to get it. Maybe that's what makes it look like shinny?

At any rate, I love the TB style and I would love to see them succeed with it (well, sadly assuming they get past my Habs, that is) in the hopes that it might encourage more and more NHL teams to play a faster, aggressive offensive system.

And i remember very well of 70% of lightning fans picking Habs to beat the bruins this year, To be able to win you need to have a team Bruins havnt had that for years and the lack of playoff success shows it

Still hold my prediction Bolts in 4 and no chance on earth unless you go out and are successful in the attempts to injury our key players.
