Sens in 4.

Yes, I'm serious. :D


You know.. there are SENATORS fan boards, right?

Regardless, you won't sweep us. It seems that you're holding that 8-1 game back in October over your head as a trophy, and trying to use it as a logical explanation of why the Senators will win. I have 3 logical reasons why you WON'T win, however:

1. That was the last game you've won against us.
2. The EGG and Parise line have begun to click in the last 3 games.
3. Martin Brodeur.

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?


I don't think home ice will matter much in the series. Just a feeling i have. In all seriousness. I see a 6 or 7 game series with the Sens pulling out an OT victory in Ottawa or NJ, to move on and face the Sabres in the ECF. When you compare Emery to Brodeur, i guess he is unproven. All i have to say to that is....Cam Ward and Dwayne Rolson were unproven too. Eaves will be ready for Thursdays game in NJ. Let's drop the puck already.

Go Sens Go!!!

Cam Ward wasn't exactly Hasek in goal; he played quite well, but it took a total team effort from Carolina to win the Cup.

Roloson had some guy named Pronger rallying the defense in front of him. Do the Senators have one of these "Prongers" as well?

I'll say this -- Emery will give the Devils more trouble than Holmqvist.

1. Yes. That was the last game we won. Your point is? The Pens won the season series with the Sens 3-1. Where are they now? You would think you would be smart enough to know that the regular season means jack %$#@$.

2. The EGG??? What is this egg you speak of? Do you mean that the Devils will lay an egg?

3. If Brodeur plays like he did in the Lightening series, the Sens will win easily.

No...the Sens have 2x Prongers in Volchenkov & Phillips. They will effectively shut down the EGG line. The Preissing/Corvo and Redden/Meszaros tandem will take care of the rest of the NJ forward lines. The Devils were amongst the worst offense's in the NHL. The NJ forwards, don't scare me at all. The Devils will go as far as Brodeur will take them. This series will come down to goaltending,special teams and who is the more physical team. I'm picking the Sens to come out on top in all 3. Sens in 5, if Brodeur plays like he did in the 1st round. Sens in 7 if Brodeur stands on head. Devils in 7 if Brodeur stands on his head and Gerber is in nets.


Go Sens Go!!!

Devils in 2 if Gerber is in nets.


fixed it for ya, bro. ;)

Jester- You mentioned a total team effort. That is exactly what I saw out of the Sens in round one from Alfie on down. I'm not saying the Sens will win the Cup (they still have to get past your boys, which is way easier said than done) but it is not just Emery that will give the Devs a harder time in the offensive zone than they faced in the last series. Even with the ASH line out on the ice, there will be six guys playing defense.

As for Emery, he's obviously no Marty and he can look gangly at times, but he makes the saves he's asked to make consistently and thoroughly. No doubt the hatchlings and Parise will test him, but their success will depend more on getting to rebounds than on getting chances and even Meszaros clears rebounds more often than not.

As for the Sens offense, Marty gave a few gifts to the Lightning, I don't expect him to give away much more. The Sens can play either style (trap or free for all) effectively, so simply playing shut down is not going to win the Devils four of seven here, they will have to open up at some point if they don't want to leave it up to mere bounces. Doing so will leave them exposed, though and the Sens can score with any line (see Chris Kelly with 3 goals) so they will have to pick their spots just right. In any event, the Sens will get plenty of odd man rushes if the Devils do press, and if Dany Heatley finds his scoring touch this series, look out.

You're free to make your point...although I don't agree with your rationale much, U can think what U want. But I must say that your sense of humor SUCKS. You seem like you're trying to prove a point...honestly, nobody cares! Go back to Ottawa or wherever your from, relax, and let the boys on the ice determine who is better and who is not. Other than that, its nice to know that you support UR team- this might be the year of the Senators. Anything less would be upsetting, right?

I saw enough of the Penguins series to agree with this. If the Senators are committed to total team defense, then they'll be tough to beat. If this is just another version of a Sens team that's only going to go as far as Lalime/Emery/Gerber/whomever will take them, then the Devils win.

As for Emery, he's obviously no Marty and he can look gangly at times, but he makes the saves he's asked to make consistently and thoroughly. No doubt the hatchlings and Parise will test him, but their success will depend more on getting to rebounds than on getting chances and even Meszaros clears rebounds more often than not.


I disagree here. The EGG line was able to create offense on the fly rather than on the rebound in the TB series. If that line plays as well as it did during stretches against TB, then they're not going to need rebounds to score.

But it scares the sh!t out of me that Gomez is putting in more goals than Elias.

Anyhow, the mood across the city here is that is going to be a cakewalk. Everyone is talking sweep.

This is pretty typical:

Obviously you didn't watch the last three games of the Devils/Lighting series. Brodeur was lights out and only Emery wishes he could be as half as good as Brodeur on his off nights. This could be a good series, but until Ottawa shows me something in which they have not over the years bowing out of the playoffs each and every year with an unproven goaltender then I will take them seriously. ;) Until then I will take Brodeur and the Devils in 5, maybe 6 games.

and you say some here do not have comon sense. Man you are calling that kettle black EH?

how can Sens fans be thinking sweep? like - of anyone, ever? you'd think Senators fans would be like Sabres fans at this point - though I suppose there are Sabres fans who are supremely confident.

anyway, the Senators are like Tampa Bay, except with a real goaltender, decent defense, and depth up and down the lineup. While we certainly played better in the final 3 games vs. Tampa, the Devils will have to elevate their play once again to compete with the Senators. I don't think anyone can legitimately consider the Devils a favorite in this series.

I simply meant that the goals that went in against Holmquist will not necessarily go in against Emery (don't expect too many dmen to collapse into Emery, he slashes people who do that). Obviously, not every goal will have to come off of Rayzor's pads. If the Devils open up, the Sens will, too and then Elias gets to work his magic. But since we're going to be watching tennis for at least 70% of this series, neither team will rack up quality chances or move the puck cross ice very often.

Tri, the Devils will be favored in this series. They were the better team this season, won the season series and when you have the #1 factor in the playoffs which is BRODEUR, the Devils are the favorites as long as he is in between the pipes each night. :evil:

You have lost any credibility you may have previously had.


I seems your sarcasm meter is broken too. I'm just having a little fun. :lol:

Here are 3 facts i'm sure you won't disagree with.

1. The Devils have the best goalie in the world, who has played that way for the last 3 games.
2. The Devils have a 1st rate defense.
3. The Devils have 3 really dangerous forward lines.


With that said, this series should be a "walk in the park" for the Devils. They should be handle the Sens in 6 games max, but more then likely 5 or a sweep. All i can say is the Sens are more focused then i've ever seen them. They know the only way they will shake the "choker" label is to go deep in this years PO's. If they end of losing this series, then big changes will be on the way. Both in the Front Office and on the team. If the Sens win this series, then i think they will win the cup. I guess we will see how the Sens play as underdogs in the PO's.

Go Sens Go!!!

the Devils were the better team by a few points, winning the season series doesn't mean a thing, and the Senators took less time to dispatch a better team in the playoffs, and looked far more dominant doing it.

as I said, the Sens are like the Lightning with depth and a goalie. Their first line is better, their second line is damn good, and their third line can actually score goals. Their defense can move the puck and skate with anyone. It's a frightening matchup - Ray Emery is going to have to be rather ordinary for us to win.
