And you would think we would know the West well!

Ok, I'll go:

Gotta take Anaheim in 6. Oilers are playing well. Talbot has been very good. They have the size and grit to match up against the Ducks. But I think the Ducks experience will win out.

Nashville in 6. Should be a good series. It will come down to goaltending. Can Allen repeat round one?

NYR in 6. Just a better team.

Washington in 7. This has got to be the Caps year right? But I dunno, they looked pretty ordinary against the leaves. But they are my nephews favourite team so I have to go with them.

Caps vs Penguins is a match made in hockey heaven - Ovechkin vs Crosby once again, now veterans in this game, you'd think whoever wins this will get to the Stanley Cup finals on a roll.

Ducks vs Oilers, luckily the duckily's have better defense than SJ, I don't know if they can match the Oilers speed of McDavid and Draisaitl - the big german who kept giving fits to SJ's defense.

But if they can control those two, and overcome their speed those two have, the depth of the Ducks could overtake the younger Oilers.

A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

NSH sweep STL 4-0
EDM over ANA in 7
NYR over OTT in 6

Nashville rolling bigtime

Coilers gonna grind that small D down in anal-heim eventually

Rags rolling with a helluva good defensive game.

Washington struggled with leaves and Crosby is dialed right in

Predators in 7 - No clue really but let's go with that
Ducks in 6 - Anaheim doesn't impress me but I'm betting the Oilers will beat themselves

Senators in 6 - Karlsson will guide them past the rangers. Burrows will get one assist in the series
Capitals in 7 - So tempted to choose the Pens in 6 but those Capitals have to win one day don't they?

4/8 for me in the first round... youch.

Nashville in 7 (4 overtime games in this)
Anaheim in 6 (oilers implode)

Pits in 7 (If Pitts wins one game, they win the series.. otherwise, it's a Washington sweep)
Out in 6. (More hope than any actual reason here)
The 'Chain of Command' is the chain I am going to beat you with until you understand I am in charge.

Five for eight in Round One...

STL over NSH in 6
EDM over ANA in 7
NYR over OTT in 6
PIT over WAS in 6

I hope I'm wrong on all of these, I want the exact opposite to happen.
