NO WAY Theodore and Washington goes to the SCF. Theodore has a lot to prove in these playoffs as last year he stunk up the WC playoffs and was pulled seveal games for Budaj. Thomas of Boston has a better chance of making the SCF than Theodore IMO. Of course never count out a healthy Brodeur that is not burned out this playoff season. New Jersey gets past Carolina (which I think they will) in the 1st round, then look out.

Not going to make my full playoff prediction as there could be upsets in the rounds so the first round will do for now.

EASTERN CONFERENCE

Series 'A' - #1 Boston Bruins vs. #8 Montreal Canadiens - Boston in 5.

Series 'B' - #2 Washington Capitals vs. #7 New York Rangers - Washington in 6.

Series 'C' - #3 New Jersey Devils vs. #6 Carolina Hurricanes - New Jersey in 6.

Series 'D' - #4 Pittsburgh Penguins vs. #5 Philadelphia Flyers - Pittsburgh in 7.

WESTERN CONFERENCE

Series 'E' - #1 San Jose Sharks vs. #8 Anaheim Ducks - San Jose in 7.

Series 'F' - #2 Detroit Red Wings vs. #7 Columbus Blue Jackets - Detroit in 6.

Series 'G' - #3 Vancouver Canucks vs. #6 St. Louis Blues - St. Louis in 6.

Series 'H' - #4 Chicago Blackhawks vs. #5 Calgary Flames - Chicago in 7.

Boston sweeps (Habs get worse when things go wrong, they'll fold after they fall behind)

Washington in 6 (trapping won't work on Ovie and company)

NJD in 6 (War, but we have more talent)

Pitt in 7 (Classic, but home ice and refs make the difference)

San Jose in 6 (Ducks vets cause trouble, but they're not good enough)

Detroit in 5 (Jackets still a year away)

Vancouver in 5 (Blues shot their wad getting in)

Chicago in 6 (They're deeper, but tough series)

Pitt over Boston in 6 (They're more talented, and they'll get all the calls, unless Thomas stands on his head, or Fleury chokes, I don't see Boston winning)

NJD in 6 (Marty's better than Theodore, it's gonna matter)

Chicago in 6 (Inexperience a problem, but less baggage than Sharks have)

Vancouver in 7 (Luongo can carry a team, I think Detroit's gonna be a little tired, it's tough to win the cup 2 years in a row, even with an easyish first round matchup)

Pitt in 7 (I hate this pick, I hate myself for making it, I hate Pitt, but they're talented, hot, and the refs love them and hate us. Please prove me wrong.)

Chicago in 6 (I don't love the Canucks, they've had favorable matchups, but Chicago's better)

Pitt in 7 (Crosby and Malkin vs. Kane and Toews could be special to watch)

God I hope I'm wrong, I fvcking hate Cindy and company.

So every year when the playoffs are set, I simulate it on whatever NHL game I happen to have that year...this year I switched back to the EA Sports series after doing the 2Ks for awhile.

Does NHL09 really have no way to just put together a 16 NHL team tournament? You can do the Finnish playoffs or an 8 team playoff for the right to play the Canadiens centennial team, but not a regular 16 team NHL tournament? Or am I just missing it?

EC Quarter Finals

Bruins - Canadiens : Bruins in 5 (Can see the earth ending before Montreal pulling off upset)

Capitals - Rangers : Rangers in 6 (I get this funny feeling the Rangers are going to pull this off)

Devils - Hurricanes : Devils in 5 (I think we win this easier than expected)

Penguins - Flyers : Flyers in 7 (I think if Philly wins game 1 they get this series. Just a hunch)

EC Semi Finals

Bruins - Rangers : Bruins in 6 (Bruins D will stifle NY)

Flyers - Devils : Devils in 6 (The earth is round again, and what should be..is)

EC Finals

Bruins - Devils : Bruins in 7 (Our late season slump cost us home ice...and the chance at the Cup).

***

WC Quarter Finals

Sharks - Ducks : Sharks in 6 (Anaheim is a sexy pick, but San Jose is up for this)

Red Wings - Blue Jackets : Red Wings in 5 (I watched them play 2x this year, and boys vs. men)

Canucks - Blues : Canucks in 7 (Blues are the team we'd love to see win, but scoring is an issue vs. Van).

Blackhawks - Flames : Blackhawks in 5 (A Chicago sweep is not out of question...so ready for this).

WC Semi Finals

Sharks - Blackhawks : Blackhawks in 6 (Here it is, San Jose loses game 1 at home and Chi smells blood)

Red Wings - Canucks : Red Wings in 7 (Red Wings dominate, but Vancouver proves pesty until the inevitable)

WC Finals

Blackhawks - Red Wings : Redwings in 6 (Chicago wins game 1 in Detroit, but RedWings too experienced to blow this)

SC Finals:

Bruins-Red Wings: Red Wings in 5 (Boston D shuts down the eastern teams.. but this is no eastern team. Detroit has suprisingly easy time on way to 2nd straight Cup)

Go Devils!!

I hate to say it, but I agree with this.

It has little to do with the way the Devils played down the stretch...I just hate this matchup. Carolina's power play has been lights out lately...if there is such a thing, the Devils' PK has been "lights in". The 'Canes play with a lot of confidence against the Devils. Unfortunately I see this series playing out very much like the '06 series, with the Devils constantly looking like they're a step slower. Like Jerry said, I hope I'm wrong, and I'll be there for Games 1 and (hopefully) 2.
