I wish. Very underwhelming attendance last 2 years. (Of course I know you like using that meme)

 

Anyway guess some predictions:

Caps in 6

Pens in 6

Bruins in 6

Rangers in 7

 

Hawks in 6

Wild in 7

Oilers in 6

Ducks in 6

Here we go again, Sharks playoff hockey. Am I ready? Was I ever ready? 

 

 

INTO THE FLOOD AGAIN

SAME OLD TRIP IT WAS BACK THEN

SO I MADE A BIG MISTAKE

TRY TO SEE IT ONCE MY WAY

 

The Sharks will certainly underwhelm again in the playoffs. I don't think they can avoid the Western Conference's "big guns" this time around, and I doubt their ability to beat the Oilers. After the reverse sweep, I've learned to keep my expectations low (which made last year all the more entertaining). I'm doing the same this year. If they go on a big run, it'll be a pleasant surprise. The Elixir of Numb has done its duty, and now I am ready for anything, even an attack from a Procyon lotor that's just escaped it's would-be exterminator.

Oh, it's the 2017 NHL Playoff thread! I totally recognized it at first glance. :rolleyes:

 

Go Capitals, Blue Jackets, or anyone that isn't a historical juggernaut.

T'would be nice if we could defend our Western Conference title this year. If not though? :shrug: I've watched, literally, zero hockey this year.

I'm so glad we're not playing the Perds again.

 

Holy sh!t, the Wings aren't in? What madness is this?

Are those matchups confirmed @the admiral? I think I read somewhere that depending on what the Maple Leafs do Boston could possibly play Washington in the 1st round.

Yeah, Toronto plays Ottawa in the first round if the Leafs manage to get at least a point tonight.

That might actually work out better. The Bruins could have a better shot at bouncing the Caps, having as they do two of the best players of all time.

I guess a decent outcome for today would be to have the Leafs-Sens and the Flames-Oilers in the 1st round of the playoffs. Also would ensure a California matchup as well for that matter. If we're gonna be doing regional playoffs, might as well go all out. 

 

Guess I need to brush off my old bandwagon avatar for this year's playoffs. Sigh. Was nice not needing to use it these past three years.

I don't know if I actually want the Oilers to win the division. I think that they can beat both the Sharks and Flames but a Battle of Alberta series could go either way and would probably kill me. That being said, it would be just about the coolest thing ever so I'm not totally opposed to it.

1. Don't spear anyone in the nuts.

2. Don't get a lead and then let in two goals in the last minute and thirty of the game.

@the admiral's matchups are now correct as the Leafs lost to the Beej. Caps-Leafs and Bruins-Sens.

Not yet! If the Oilers win and the Ducks don't get a point we get a Battle of Alberta in the first round.

The silly playoff format is robbing the Blue Jackets of first round home ice and a better chance at advancing, but we are in the dance and that's all I could've asked for in October. This is great.

No Battle of Ontario.

 

No Battle of Alberta.

 

What first round series am I suppposed to be fired up for?

 

I don't see anything that reminds me of, say, Blues/Blackhawks last year or Flyers/Penguins 2012 where it's a series that you have to watch
