Yeah, picking them out of the playoffs and to lose in the first two rounds didn't work out for him.

FYI, I said there were 8 teams who played 14 playoff games in the first 2 rounds and advanced, but it's only 7. They are a combined 11-28.

What kind of seeding did those teams come in with? I feel like that sounds more like the story of some underdog team that scrapped its way to 1st and 2nd round victories than a President's Trophy contender battling with teams that maybe should have been much inferior to them.

2010 Canadiens: 8 (19th in NHL in points)
2009 Hurricanes: 7 (11th in NHL in points)
2003 Wild: 7 (10th in NHL in points)
2002 Maple Leafs: 4 (2nd in NHL in points)
2002 Avalanche: 3 (5th in NHL in points)
1993 Maple Leafs: 3rd in Norris Division (Divisional Playoffs - 8th in NHL in points)
1990 Blackhawks: Norris Division Champion (6th out of 21 in NHL in points)

I don't think the seeding matters all *that* much - I agree that the Rangers haven't been that substantially outplayed in either series, not like 2010 Montreal or (probably) the 2003 Wild.

2010 Canadiens: 8 (19th in NHL in points) 4-1 vs 7th seed Philly
2009 Hurricanes: 6 (11th in NHL in points) Swept vs 4th seed Pitt
2003 Wild: 6 (10th in NHL in points) Swept vs 7th seed Ducks
2002 Maple Leafs: 4 (2nd in NHL in points) 4-2 vs 3rd seed Carolina
2002 Avalanche: 3 (5th in NHL in points) 4-3 vs 1st seed Detroit
1993 Maple Leafs: 3rd in Norris Division (Divisional Playoffs - 8th in NHL in points) 4-3 vs 3rd Symthe
Los Angeles
1990 Blackhawks: Norris Division Champion (6th out of 21 in NHL in points) 4-2 vs 2nd Smythe 90pts Edmonton Oilers


some additional info....5 of the 7 lost the 1st game in the series which if we're hoping for the rangers to be worn out it would make sense that game 1 should present an advantage

on the bad side most of these teams were the lower seed or had less pts 5 of 7

i'm hoping that the rangers are still feeling pain come mon...feeling nervous

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

I'm pretty sure that 2003 Wild team was losing both of those series 3-1 too, and the winning goal in overtime of Game 7 in the first round was the last shot Patrick Roy faced in his career.

Good game so far in the West...2-2 after 2. A great side-effect of having the Devs still alive in the playoffs is continued interest in the other series.

Yotes looked rusty to me tonight, their passing, skating and everything looked sloppy tonight. I'd like to see how they come out in the next game.

Phoenix was absolutely manhandled today. It was so bad that Quick had to spot them 2 goals. :rolleyes:

Kings lookin like they will move through the Yotes fairly quickly....

It's worrysome to know that Bettman probably has an erection thinking about a Kings vs Rangers SCF!
