I also picked the Sens to win the Cup before the playoffs.

All the early predictions from hfboards have Senators winning this thing. After the game Hull, Ferraro, and Clement all agreed that the Sens are the favorites going into the series. I figured Brodeur and home ice would be enough for Vegas to make the Devils slight favorites or at least a pick 'em series.

I'll go against my pick of Sens to win the Cup and take Devils in 7....game 7 attendance: 17,209

Satans, I think you a bit crazy on dat one.

Ottawa can score, and actually play defense, and Emery has been good so far. They just shutdown Pittsburgh who had a better offense than we sure have. This series will be extremely tought. I hope they will win, and I hope I am wrong, but this Ottawa team maybe the ceiling.

I have faith that if we play Devils hockey, and Marty is Marty, and Egg shows up and Parise continues...that this will be close.



No not crazy at all Hell. You look at the last three games the Devils played vs. Ottawa. The Devils clearly played them very well and Emery is a good goalie but he can be shaken very easily. yes Ottawa have the goal scorers too but the key is getting to Emery and the Devils have done that the last three meetings vs. Ottawa. This team can be beaten Hell and Pittsburgh had no shot with the youngsters and Fleury in nets with NO playoff experience. If Ottawa played some other team with playoff experience they would have lost in round 1. Ottawa just does not do well in the playoffs and past years it has shown. Emery can be beaten and he will by the Devils EGG line and the Parise line. I really think Emery will be more exposed than TB's Holmqvist.

They haven't exactly lit up Emery. They beat him in a shoot a few weeks ago, a 3-2 close game back in january when both teams were injured.

I hope you're right, but it's not as rosy a picture as you make it seem.

We shall see. Only the Devils can make this an interesting series. If they play their game like the last three here in round 1, this round 2 series will go 5 maybe 6 games with the Devils winning. :evil:

I'm not feeling great about thi series. Historically, we have played more of a skating style against the Sens than any other team. If we can keep them from hemming us in our zone, we have a shot. Time for Tums.

The key about this series is 60 minutes. I thought we were somewhat inconsistent with TB, especially the EGG line and sometimes the checking line. Our defense was also sub-par. This is a tough matchup and either team can win. That being said, I think the team that brings their A-Game 60 minutes every night, will win.

The worst thing about this is I'll probably have to endure the games being called by senile Bob Cole. That and I think Ottawa will win in five.

Another unproven goaltender in Ray Emery who can be beaten by the EGG line and the Parise line. Madden/Pandolfo line on Heatley, Alfredsson and Spezza.

Devils won the season series 3-1 over the Senators. The Lightning series I think was a tough series. This one with Ottawa and Emery it won't be as tough.


Satan's got a sense of humor. That made me laugh so hard, i spit out my beer all over my keyboard. This series will come down to goaltending and special teams. Emery will be up for the challenge and so will the rest of the team. I wouldn't be so quick to overlook the Sens this year Satan. Either way....it will be one *hell" of a series.

Go Sens Go!!!

It's nice to see some Devs fans post some common sense. I have watched the Sens playoff failures for 9 years. The 2003 Playoff loss to the Devils, especially hard to take. This is the 10th straight year in the playoffs for the Sens, and i can say only one thing. I have never seen a more focused Sens team, then years team. This is not the same team you beat in 7 games in 2003. This is the same team that beat the Devils back in October 8-1. That loss was the worst loss for the Devils in 13 years. The other 3 games were all close...3-2, 3-2 and 2-1 SO. I think the heat is getting to Satan. ;)

The Sens may be a different team but they still have an unproven goaltender and the Devils have home ice this time.

What's Eaves' status for this series?

Saprykin will probably be in, Eaves didn't skate today, though I know he said the headaches had subsided. He is just waiting for clearance to play from the docs I believe. I'd imagine though, if he is good to go...he goes.
