My thoughts exactly.

If Dallas would have won an entire Division would have made the playoffs for I'm thinking the first time in the modern era.

Definitely in this era, woulda been cool to see that sort of divisional dominance over one conference.

Except that nobody's really dominating anything when the whole league is a blob of 95-98 points.

BAD PREDICTIONS

Caps in 5: Rangers scare everyone with a 1-0 win to kick off the series but then they're out of gas.

Pens in 6: the Bolts are a paper tiger with crappy goaltending and lots of wins against NASCAR Division dregs. Even the enfeebled Penguins will feast on them.

Bruins in 5: the Habs don't impress me that much, while the Bruins are my pick to win the East

Sabres in 7: Designated Prevailing of the Hot Goalie. And I don't even know if Ryan Miller's going to play for them or not!

Blackhawks in 7: I don't care how discombobulated the third and fourth lines looked this morning. I'll pick the Canucks to take a best of seven against the Hawks after they've done it once before.

Ducks in 7: to me, this series is all about defiance. Ryan Getzlaf is defying the male pattern baldness which consumes more and more of his head. Corey Perry is defying his peers in the National Hockey League by not letting each and every one of them punch him in the face. Teemu Selanne is defying the inexorable march of time and the urge to do a wishy-washy retirement act. The Nashville Predators are defying the mathematical concept of ordinal numeration by having four fourth lines. However, the Ducks are the superior team.

Coyotes in 7: the league has a vested interest in propping up the Coyotes so that they can sell the team to a shady Chiacgo businessman subsidized by taxpayers. I refuse to bet against the house.

Sharks in 4: too much talent on the Sharks for it all to get bogged down in the Los Anze-less trap crap.

How often does the President Trophy winner face the reigning Stanley Cup Champs in the first round? Adding this champ has knocked off the Canucks the last two seasons.

A rhetorical question is a figure of speech in the form of a question posed for its persuasive effect without the expectation of a reply.[1] Rhetorical questions encourage the listener to think about what the (often obvious) answer to the question must be. When a speaker states, "How much longer must our people endure this injustice?", no formal answer is expected. Rather, it is a device used by the speaker to assert or deny something. (e.g.: "Why me?")

Rangers can upset the Caps, come on the Rangers.

So they go from "crappy, lazy, uninspired, pathetic, half-brained play" to a team that could beat the #1 seed all in the matter of three days?

Talk about a heel turn, TrueYankee....

Detroit over Phoenix in 7 (their last playoff series in PHX)

LA over SJ in 5 (SJ CHOKES)

Seriously, this obsession of yours is at minimum, unhealthy.

Is there an online version of a restraining order?

T Bay over pens in 5 (No Crosby BIG problem)

Statistically the second best season in franchise history, where the teams 'core' only played together for two games, would argue that point.

Some days have five games in them. That's why the NHL needs more than one cable network for its playoff coverage (I'm not talking about NHL Network)
