I think you're pretty right on with the picks. I agree Edmonton could give Detroit some trouble. Anaheim & Calgary could go 7. I still think Carolina will beat Montreal but it will be close, likely 6 games.

The Stars were another of those teams with a Stanley Cup in two trips to the Finals

So you're just counting the Dallas years?

Anyway--while I would put a different number of games to some of my predictions, and some of my reasons vary from yours, I have to agree with the winners you've chosen--except I'm taking a chance and picking the Sabres over the Flyers.

This is more a gut thing than any concrete reason, but as you put it-"The Flyers have been a puzzle all year."

Okay--because the North Stars did lose in the finals to the Islanders (a long time ago) and the Penguins.

So Carolina will lose because of......little fan base and the tradition of Montreal? Just like in 2002?

Some credibility that is. Montreal will be very lucky to get past Carolina.

Carolina has bad fan suppport? I've seen a few 'Canes games on tv and it looks like they get great crowds at the RBC Center. Have you ever been to Raleigh? Because if not, I don't know how you or anybody can legitimately say that the people down there don't know about the Hurricanes and their success this season. Montreal does have a great tradition of hockey but I really don't see or understand what that has to do with this series. History really isn't a factor here. The Hurricanes are much faster and deeper than the Canadiens and I have to disagree with you on your pick here. All the other picks I agree with except the Sabres and Flyers. I have Buffalo beating Philadelphia.

I'm digging the picks, but in the Ottawa-Buffalo series, the Sens' blue liners will give Buffalo forwards a lot more trouble than their counterparts in Philly, which looked granite blocks sitting on the blue line compared to the Sabres' forwards.

Hmm--you were 3-5 for the first round--and I was 4-4 so neither of us did a great job.

This time I agree with you on 3, but believe Sakic and the boys will prove too much for the Ducks--but it will probably go 7.

The Sharks will much tougher for the Oilers.

Carolina's only hope is that New Jersey's layoff cooled them off.

I hope so, but based on your previous round picks, I was hoping you picked against my team again.
