Absolutely no difference whatsoever. This was wholly on defence and secondary scoring.

Consensus pick to win the Cup - gone. Bye bye Pens
President's Trophy winners - gone. Bye bye Canuckleheads
Defending champs - still alive, barely.
East points leader - almost golf time

The West is going to be fucking boring and the East has two exciting teams left.

Preds vs Panthers final. We're all going to die.

Noooo, late to the picks party. They're all DNC but anyway:

Preds vs Yotes – Preds in 7
Caps vs Rangers – NYR in 7
Kings vs Blues – Blues in 7
Devs vs Flyers – Flyers in 6

Looks like everyone is picking almost the same. Morphee tipping the 'upset' though!

The wall that is the Preds holds against the Wings but cant against the offensive juggernaut that is the Yotes. WUT. There's probably more going on in the game than the score indicates but still.

You know it's bad when the Caps are trying to grind out 1 goal wins.

Having said that. I would fucking love it if Phoenix won.

Or holding out for a Philly west vs Philly east final.

Australian Ice Hockey League starts this weekend! Perth finally has a team, woo! (complete with ex-pat Canadians).

First game sold out too, so I am going to have to wait until the end of the month.

Dropped $50 on the Rangers to lift the cup. @ $4.10 will be a tidy win I hope.

Shame about the Penguins win, otherwise it could've been 4.

Does that mean we start laying money on the Leafs now?

Just watched the 3rd period of the Rangers / Devs game at work... sucker punch on Broduer, only for him to get an assist on an empty net rolling puck from Parise.

If the Devs play like that, they could take down the Rangers actually..

They came into the finals the 8th ranked team in the conference knocking off Vancouver 4-1 who were ranked 1st then knocked off the 2nd ranked team 4-0 & will likely knock off the 3rd ranked team 4-1 or 4-2 to progress to the SC final prob against the no.1 team from the other conference yeh?

Except halfway through the Blues series they went to odds-on favourites.

I'm just pissed because I was rooting for the Kings and you're a fucking idiot so I have to now root for the Devils.

Kovy for cup!

You've never watched a Kings game at all this year, have you?

When they were losing, nobody was asking "Why do the Kings suck?" Everybody was asking "Where's the offense?" Because that's all they were lacking. But they didn't ride coat tails of loser points and in the end the majority of their losses came from 1 goal games, they certainly weren't underdogs and certainly not Cinderella. The only way they are is that they squeezed in at an 8th seed.

Any team with Richards, Kopitar, Quick, Carter, Brown and Doughty are the complete opposite of underdog.

Nope aint watched a game all year & as I said I always jump on the NHL bandwagon strait after the Champions League Final.

No matter who is in your team when you are trying to win any comp from 8th place you got a challenge on your hands when you have to play the no. 1 2 & 3 rank teams to progress the the SC Final.

NHL fans on here come across as very tender, defensive & unwelcoming. Never been a fan of close minded inner-circle purists in any scene.

TBH, I don't mind you being here Dero. You come off as a bit of a **** in the EPL thread but that's all for shits and giggles, and you're no baitman.

FWIW, I want the Kings to win it all, no matter what the reason. As much as I have a man crush on King Henrik, and would love to see Marty Brodeur win another Cup when he's a million years old. Would love to see Richards and Carter win a cup after they left Philly in shitty circumstances.

That would be so fucking awesome.
