    Cool 2011 Crystal Ball!!!! Props To Riggs for the idea!

    o.k. boys and girls, it is time to put up or shut up....here is the last word on playoff predictions....leave your "round" picks here before each round starts. To sweeten the pot we have a special prize for each of the round winners. (Lattes with Jack Butler and RWGR), The overall winner also gets Biscotti from 6th and Id as well.....good luck all.....and the race startssssssssss........NOW!!!!
    Thanks to the above 4 for being good sports!!!

    Eastern Conference
    Washington - too much speed and fire power for the Rangers
    Philly - too much depth and talent for the Sabres.....and no Lindy Ruff on the Flyers (I can't stand him)
    Boston - Bigger and Stronger than the Habs
    Tampa - in an "upset" over the Crosby/Malkinless Pens....though Kennedy and Stall are pretty good playoff performers

    I'm not sure who the Leafs are playing in the first round, but I'll take bottom 2 ranked Golfers over them
    Western Conference
    Vancouver - shakes the monkey off their back
    San Jose - Crushes L.A.
    Detroit - possible upset in the making
    Nashville - an "upset" also!!!!

    Wash in 7 - Rangers have been playing playoff hockey for a while and have Drury back but I think will come up just short.

    Sabres in 6 - philly had their shot last year and didn't do it. Sabres have been playing great and have the great Lindy Ruff (sorry coach)

    Boston in 6 - bigger, badder, better

    Pitt in 7 - hard series to guess but their play without Crosby and Malkin says it all

    Vancouver in 4 - there has to be one sweep so why not. Vancouver wants to get rid of their Chicago curse and will do it in style.

    SJ in 6 - I hate trusting them in the playoffs but they do have experience and hopefully have learned that playoffs is a new season and their record means nothing.

    Detroit in 6 - Phoenix is too busy packing up for Winnepeg

    Anaheim in 7 - I think this one will be close. I'm on ther Perry train.

    O.K. People....Looks like I won round one with a perfect score!!!!
    Round two predictions please....here are mine....

    Washington - No injuries to help Tampa out... I think they could win a game or two....If it goes longer than 5 games, I will be
    surprised
    Philly - (My Flyers) thinking with my heart and not my head....If our goalies show up....then it is us... Boston does not have the heart and will that Philly does.

    Vancouver - Will only get better as the playoffs go on

    San Jose - an upset in the making in a close series....does either team come out alive?? reminds me of the Det/Colorado days..
    IF I GOT SMART WITH YOU....HOW WOULD YOU KNOW??

    You should really try posting your picks before the start of the second round.....not 2 days after.

    I hate making predictions, which is why I didn't make one, but I didn't think that the Caps would go down in 4. I didn't think that TB were this good a team. I thought that Washington's fire power would be too much for them.
    The next team to play them had better not underestimate TB.

    You're not the only one caught off guard by this.

    If there's no suspension to Subban, we might see some retaliation.....Like you said, game 2 should be great
