Picks for the cup finals? I have Ducks over Penguins for the final. Wish my Rangers made it further than 5 games but that happens what you can't defend prime ice...

Interesting you have a team that is struggling to get by the Nashville Predators in your SCF....

No to the Blues - Hitchcock is a complete a$$ - ask any player.

I can't stand Hitchcock but, I do love my Blues.

If the Stars had a goalie, they'd win the Series. But they have 2 mediocre goalies, so the odds are against them.

Even if they had a goalie, the stars defensemen are not even close to what the Blues have depth wise on defense.

Huh. Really thought the hockey season ended back when Price got hurt. .... Guess you all have just perked right along haven't you. 

You and your fancy playoffs. 

This sucks.

And the Blues do not have the skill level of the Stars as an offensive unit. The Blues get a break because Seguin is out for the first 2 games, at least. Even if he returns, he has rust...

Maybe true but, the Blues did a pretty good job of keeping the Hawks skill level to a minimum and that is not an easy thing to do.

Just saw this on reddit ... Guy who's never seen a hockey game ACCIDENTALLY tunes into Blues game, decides to live tweet it, falls in love with it, and becomes internet famous ...

Dallas kinda' routed the Hawks this year, but had immense trouble with the Blues --  no one is picking the Stars ... so it's all gravy.

I've been a Caps fan since they came into existence, and I'm hoping that this is finally our year.  I can't say I'm super-confident, playing against the hottest team over the last 20 games or so.  I'm hoping that  Holtby, the best goaltender in the league this year, along with our two ex-Pen D-men, can slow them down long enough that our more physical style can wear them down.  I think this will be a close and entertaining series.

Our GM with the old Dayton Gems, was the first assistant GM with the Caps. Lefty McFadden. Not really sure how long he was with the Caps, but those first few years were pretty rough from what I understand.

They had a few players go from Dayton to play for the Caps also. Tony White, Gord Lane and Dave Forbes all played for our old local team.

Yeah, I kind of missed the first years, I left that area in 1974 to go to college at Michigan Tech.  We did manage to win an NCAA championship during my time there, and I learned a whole lot about hockey.  I came back to Virginia in 1980, and the Caps were still pretty dreadful.  Much like my golf game, which was pretty dreadful in those years, things have improved quite a bit.

But they made the SCF three consecutive times in their first three seasons! :-P
