At least those teams don't have a guy like Ken Holland who gives long term, multi million dollars contracts to players that are mediocre at best. The Wings will be a last place team for a decade. The Sabres have something to work with. The Bruins do need a shake up.

Ah, the Bruins do that and a bunch of them have no trade clauses... So they get rid of Claude and he wasn't the problem, time to clean house and start over. Get rid of Rask and Krecji, to me, Bergeron & Marchand are the only 2 who should stay and even Marchand I wish they traded long ago due to all his stupid slew footing trips. He's nothing but a little punk

To be fair, Ken Holland had a good run.

There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

Holland did have a good run, but he lost his mind with the contracts. Check this link out and see how bad some off them are. Still paying Franzen and Weiss, who haven't played in years. Helm, Ericson, Abdelkader geting 4 and 5 million a year for another 5 years. Just plain crazy.

I would love to see the Leafs beat the Caps, but I think the Caps are better suited to beat Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh being knocked out is the prime directive. I know, my lack of faith is disturbing.

Don't have to listen to TSN (Toronto Sports Network) going on and on and on about the Toronto hockey team any more.

Thank you Washington Capitals.

So that's where all the hate comes from. biggrin

What a great series, 5 OT games, all 6 games decided by one goal. The kids on the Leafs have shown us Leaf fans we have alot to look forward to. Freddie Anderson may have been the biggest factor of all though.

Still need a #1 Defenceman though.

The Leafs do have a promising future, but every team in the NHL is looking for good defense. Everyone wants a guy who is mixture of Nick Lidstrom and Scott Stevens. The problem is, they don't exist. I don't understand the Bruins. There were times this year they looked really, really good. So my next round wild guess.

St. Loius beats Nashville - The Blues are playing great defensive hockey.

Anaheim beats Edmonton - The Ducks are just too big and strong. Still rooting for the Oilers though.

New York beats Ottawa - The Rangers will just barely take series. It will go 7 games.

Pittsburgh beats Washington - I want Washington to win too badly. The hockey Gods seem to be favoring The Pens for some unholy reason. Plus, they are pretty damn good.

Well, I'm glad *that* round is done... Ouch...

Here are my picks for Round-2:

EAST

NYR-OTT: NYR - They've got the "can't win at home" monkey off their backs, and Lundqvist pitchafit absolutely stoned the Habs.... NYR in 6.

WSH-PIT: WSH - PIT squashed CBJ like bugs banghead , but, WSH got a good scare and survived it -- TOR surprised them, but PIT won't... Should be great series, but I think WSH takes it in 7.


WEST

NSH - STL: NSH -- They say "To be the best, you gotta beat the best" and they went thru CHI like a chainsaw through butter. Rinne was unbelievable (and he had as many offensive points himself (2 assists) as any Chicago players did -- Ouch). I think they're pretty convinced they can beat anyone now, and they might just be right. STL was very good against MIN, but Rinne is as hot as a volcano right now, so I'm going with that... NSH in 6

ANA - EDM: EDM -- gotta have an upset pick, and this is it... cheers ANA is big and strong and may well grind them down, but EDM is very fast, they've now got a couple guys who finally know how to win a game, and McDavid is the real deal -- if ANA can't catch him and pin him, he has a real chance to kill 'em dead. Gibson or Talbot? meh - they look like a wash to me... EDM in 7

GL Guys!

Regards,
4 <S!>

Only time will tell. There's been other teams over the years where we've been told how promising a future they had, and they failed to live up to expectations. Carolina, Florida, Colorado, etc.
