    So the favourites (4:1) are the Blackhawks and Washington Capitals, this season's President's Trophy winner. They also won the honor last season before bowing out in the 2nd round to the eventual Cup champs, Pittsburgh.

    It is always fun to dust off this little walk down Chokers Lane. How will they do it this time? :nervous:

    For a sense of history, the last time that the Capitals and Blackhawks both led their respective conferences in victories was 2010. The Caps were upset by #8 seed Montreal in the first round, blowing a 3-1 series lead. The Hawks went on to beat the Flyers for their first Cup of The Dynastic Period.

    Five teams from Canadia this season after getting skunked last year.

    Could this be they year that Canadia ends their 23-season Cup drought?

    This could well be the most intense series of the first round. Although BOS/OTT looks to be tight also.

    For a guy that is just getting into hockey, what's a good non-Hawks series to watch.

    If you like a lot of fast paced scoring, I would say Edmonton/San Jose. If you like low scoring defensive battles, Ottawa vs Boston. Physical battles and fights? New York vs Montreal.

    But overall, the best series should be Minn/St.L

    Good call! Should be very entertaining and many believe Edmonton will soon win a Cup.

    The 1st round should be watched like the 1st round of the NCAA tournament, just put on whatever game is most exciting at the moment. The games are spaced out to allow you to see good chucks of all of them.

    My choices though would be MIN-STL, SJ-EDM, and CBJ-PIT.

    Sharks win. Definitely deserved, just looking at the shots.

    I hope Edmonton goes out in the 1st. Don't need them getting the experience from an 09 Hawks like run.

    And after all that, the Blues take it.

    While technically they weren't the 8 seed as that doesn't exist with the new format, the Preds are a damn good team.

    Believe I saw that the Hawks had only 2 more regulation wins than Nashville; they got the top spot on the back of their OT play, which is fake hockey and means nothing come playoff time.

    A 3-goal first period lead over Edmonton?

    I think seeing them choke every year is fun but I can't stomach a Pens repeat and them getting #3 in the era.

    Man, fuck Canada and all, but I think I gotta root for the Oilers this year.
    In the East, I've never cared for the Rangers, so I guess Ottawa?

    Fuck it all I guess.

    I really don't want to see the Oilers awarded this early after years of suck. Make them sweat a few years.

    Crosby diagnosed with a concussion and is out for tomorrow.
