1 of 3 series so far to 7 games. Hopefully Flyers pull it out and fluke their way past the Bruins. Their goalie situation is nuts.

Yes.

Sabres - 50% chance
Penguins - 28.125% chance
Canadiens - 12.5% chance
Lightning - 9.375% chance

If you give every team a 50/50 chance of winning each game (which is probably not accurate). If you wanna give me chances you believe each team has in each game then I can recalculate.

I'll give:
Sabres 40%
Penguins 70%
Canadiens 20%
Lightning 30%

Looks like a lot of people want Philly to win, idk about that, Sabres look wounded already, no Connolly, no Pominville... Without those two i dont think they will go far.

and what can you say about Richards... IMO the ****er isnt far behind Cooke, somebody needs straighten his ass out, in a bad way.

Congrats on making it to the next round everyone! Couple of questions:

1) How's Arnott been doing for you guys?
2) Why is there Chinese on the exterior of the Verizon center?

Man, I wish we could play the Flyers next round. There's about a 90% chance of Ovechkin breaking the all time series goal record against that "goaltending"....

... you can do this. We play the sabres no matter what if they win, thus the chance that we will play them is simply 40%. We play the canadiens if the sabres lose and they pull through against boston so the chance that we play them is 60% * 20% = 12%. For the penguins/lightning, we need the team in question to win and both the sabres and the canadiens to lose. Thus for the pens, 60%*80%*70%= 33.6%, for the lightning 60%*80%*30% = 14.4%.

So

Buffalo 40%
Pittsburgh 33.6%
Lightning 14.4%
Canadiens 12%

I like the estimations you used for the outcomes of each series. It seems like its basically a toss up between buffalo/pittsburgh

In all honesty after watching a lot of these games, and I don't mean to be cocky or underestimate any team we play but... I don't see a team the caps cannot beat if they keep the same level of play up, barring major injuries of course.

If they're on their A game....I don't see a team in the league we can't beat. We have the talent. Will we get that consistancy is the question...

I would prefer whoever is out of the west not be in the Pacific time zone, but that is just because the Caps seldom play well out there. Course, I think that just leaves Chicago and Detroit.

Plus Nashville. With Detroit and Nashville already through to the semis and Chicago only 1 game away, the chances of not having to play on the West are actually fairly good.

I'll reiterate that I don't really care who the Caps play next round, as they can beat any of the possible opponents handily, but Montreal may be the most worn down.

Due to a quirky bit of scheduling, if Montreal stretches the series to 7, they'd have to play a back-to-back on Tuesday and Wednesday.

I was about to post the teams I want, in the order I want them. Then I realized it's reverse order of seeding. Shocking, I know.

All game 7s is more valuable to the Caps than picking their opponent at this point, though.
