2016 Playoff Discussion

Any thoughts about the playoffs?

My preseason pick was Kings over Caps. I'm sticking with that.

Both of my teams (NYR and SJ) are going to get destroyed.

My heart says Red Wings

My head is thinking this is the year the Blues do it, facing the Caps in the finals

If the Red Wings beat Tampa, I think they'll beat the Florida/Islanders winner. That mini bracket just seems so weak to me compared to the other three.

Very true, losing Stamkos hurt the Bolts chances hard. Luongo is known as a playoff choke artist and the Isles with their goalie issues also could lose thanks to their back end.

The refs in the Sharks/Kings game last night were brutal. Thank god that the Sharks won after the refs admitted that they blew a call that took away a goal.

As for the Rangers, oy... Fleury and Malkin will probably be back for tomorrow, and who knows about Lundqvist.

That was some serious bullshit that went down at the end of the Blackhawks/Blues game. Of course the Blackhawks end up with the long end of the stick.

And Justin Abdelkader is a fucking douchebag.

Sorry for the language, but I had to do it. What an idiot.

Haha... he has been doing a bit of shit disturbing, and I'm sure people didn't like him not dropping his gloves against Boyle, but Boyle's a monster! hahaha

Big win, back in the series!

The coach's challenge is ruining the playoffs...

That was some serious bullshit at the end of the Panthers/Islanders game with the non-tripping call (yes, the Rangers fan inside of me is bitter...).

At least the Sharks moved on. Hell, they might be the "favorites" in the west now.

While the Sharks are looking good, I still got to stick with my Blues prediction. Haven't been able to watch much as we've been working nights for two weeks straight out of town, but have been able to watch the highlights.
