Another early exit by Minny. You have to think changes will be made on that team. Did any one say Stepan?



The question of the Rangers moving Stepan is one I'll be curious to see answered after the season. I'm not sure he's the calibre of player worthy of no trade contract for the next two seasons and then a modified contract. His playoff performance so far has been rather ordinary.

That's about it for the toothless Sharks, their window has closed. They will go down as 1 of those best teams to never win.

Settling in to watch Boston, Ottawa. Once Rene has his twitch song finale.

Not sure I'd like to see the Bruins in the next round. Rask can be tough if he's on a roll.

I've watched about seven periods in this series over three or four games. From what I've seen if the Rangers lose to either team it's on the Rangers. They can take either team out in five games if they play any where near where they did against Montreal, 3rd game excluded.

Agree 100% Rr. The Rangers are better than both teams. Should be a max 6 game series if the Rangers play their game. Prefer Ottawa, but shouldn't matter.

Rangers 'should' be able to beat these 2 teams, should. Time will tell. And, the Craps or Crybabies, 1 of them will be out, I assume Craps do beat the Make Believes.

Rangers gotta worry about themselves. Ottawa Boston was not near the tempo Rangers Habs was. I'd be surprised if it wasn't a fast paced game without the physicality, the Rangers just went through. The only concern I have is the foot speed and quickness of Staal, Girardi, and even Smith who as good as he was in the physical series might get exposed a bit against Ottawa's speedy forwards. They will need to be physical to offset. Time will tell.

Senseless with Boucher (sp?) will play Devils hockey, this we know. They know they can't possibly keep up with the Rangers. They will clog up the ice 1-1-3 system where they clog the neutral zone and have 3 guys sitting on the blue line waiting. This is not a secret, make a plan to get around it. If we know it, the Rangers know it.

Right now it looks not so bad for the Rangers.
Ottawa will not be easier than the series against Montreal.
But there is a chance to win this series.

But after that - doesn't matter if Washington or Pittsburgh will win - would wait a big wall for the Rangers.
For me - this series would be more difficult to win as the possible final series.
The western conference looks beatable.

I've gotten the East all wrong with the exception of the Rangers, which is just fine with me.

In the West, I'm wrong about the Hawks and Flames, but seriously, who picked the Hawks to get swept?


Well I got 6 out of the 8 series wrong so far

50% - 3 of 4 in the east (had Bruins over Ottawa) and only Edmonton correct out west. I think not only didn't people pick the Hawks to get swept, but few picked Nashville to win more than a game or 2.

Strange playoff year so far with all the overtimes, yet no 7 game series

I'm calling it right now, the Caps have the better team overall and home ice. I hate the Pens and might even be rooting for the Caps to knock them off, but the Caps will NOT beat the Pens.

One word: Holtby.

He is overrated. He has a fantastic defensive team in front of him and any decent goalie would look great standing behind that defense. But he will get exposed by the Pens who will actually get rebound chances and deflections on him. Rangers - Pens in round 3.

Unfortunately, I agree with you - unfortunately because if all goes well I think the Rangers can beat the Caps, but don't have the same warm and fuzzy feeling about beating the Pens
