Vancouver is in the first round for sure.I think they will not make it any further.It would be truely fantastic if they would win their first Stanley Cup,but they would need help from above if they were to do that.
Is Toronto in?:bounce:
Bruins took a bit of a swan dive the last several games, but they came back last night. Facing Montreal in the first round, that rivalry isn't what it used to be. I hope they get somewhere. It's been a long time for the B's. Last time I saw them play, Gordie Howe was on the ice for the Red Wings.
I haven't followed hockey since I moved to the U.S., but I've been getting clued in during the last 5 days or so by my visiting brother. He updated me on who got traded where and who's back in the Canucks line-up again since the last time I paid any attention. I have now fallen asleep during 3 games since Friday and happily ate while my brother kept going up and down the stairs of a Chicago restaurant because Canucks/Red Wings Game 2 was on at the bar of the restaurant's first floor . In other words, I basically ate alone. We then had to rush home Sunday night so he could watch Game 3. I'm sure hockey will be on my tv for the rest of this week. Great time to catch up on reading! Nevertheless, GO CANUCKS GO!!!!!
I wish I could say the Canadiens will win but I'm sure they won't. Hockey players seem to think more about money these days. They have no pride anymore. They only edge they have this year is the return of their capitain but I'm really not sure it will be enough to win the cup.
So Now Vancouver is out ,Detroit eliminated Vancouver and thier second round team.Montreal is basically out.Toronto and Ottawa play tommorrow,so I will root for a Canadian team.If they fall than I don't know,I'll see who is left. :bounce:
I should probably just leave this alone and go crawl into a cave or something because I make good, intelligent picks and then they go and do something else. Never one to say "uncle" however let's do this. Tonight Avs vs Sharks I'd like to say Sharks but Roy has a way of pulling it off so I'm going with the Avs.
East: Carolina over Toronto
West: Detroit over Avs
Stanley Cup: Detroit vs Carolina Detroit takes the Cup. (but I say, go Hurricanes)
Yeah but wouldn't you like a bunch of guys signing your cup, touching it and even kissing it? I'm sure Lord Stanley enjoyed it much more when he was wearing it. Still, look how big his cup is getting. You might say his cup overfloweth.
I would say:
Toronto over the canes, and Detoit over the Avalance.
For lord stanleys cup: Toronto vs Detoit with Toronto winning the cup and bring it back to Canada where it belongs.
What else can I say being a loyal Canadian.
