Default 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs

It's that time of year again hockey fans which means it's time for another playoff discussion thread!!!

As a Blues fan I hope they can at least make it out of the first round, and maybe make another conference final appearance. This SHOULD be a little easier since they won't have to face CHI in the first round. Of course STL did get eliminated by MIN back in 2015...hoping that won't happen again.

Playoffs begin on Wednesday.

Toronto is in tough against Washington, I say Wash in 5.
Bruins beat out Sens
Oilers over Sharks (this has the potential to be a good series, imo)
Blues over Wild

Penguins over Columbus, but I see it going 7 games, maybe even with Columbus coming out on top?
NY vs Montreal. Too great goalies but King Henry hasn't played his best lately. I say Montreal in 6.
I hope the Flames can get by the Ducks, but I really don't know how they match up? Flames in 7, hopefully.
Chicago over Nashville. Chicago in 6.

I`d be pleasantly surprised if the B`s can be the Senators, defense is all banged up and thin to begin with. Mont/NY should be a good series and once again will be watching for a Wash. playoff "push". Should be good stuff !!

As a devoted NY Ranger fan since Original Six days I'd really like to be optimistic about their chances against the Canadiens, but feel they've lost too many important pieces over the last 2 years to go very far in this years playoffs.
Their season record is nothing to apologize for, but the ice starts to tilt a little more now. An unconscious Lundqvist (if it's still there) will be needed I fear.

On the topic of hockey, don't know how others feel, but I would really appreciate the powers that be reinstituting the home white jersey. Been bugging me for years.

Think Tortorella might have a surprise up his sleeve. I don't see Columbus going quietly.

Great to see a hockey thread!

Very excited. Hawks have alot of question marks on defense, and whether the young kids like Hartman, Chicken fat (Schmaltz), and Hayden can withstand the pressure

Love hockey, love the playoffs. Lets keep this thread going.
And its great to see Toronto and Edmonton in the playoffs.

The playoffs should be great as usual. Many surprises may come.

Hope the N Y Rangers go far but no sure if they will. As mentioned, lost some key players last few years but still have a good team.

My team just missed the playoffs (for the eighth straight season). We are in a decade long rebuilding. Oh well, since the Canes are out I will pull for Toronto, St Louis and Washington since they haven't won in forever.

Blackhawks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sorry, just too pumped. God, I hope we don't have to play Washington for the Cup. Really they are the only team that scares me. Anyone could lose to anyone at any time but Chi/Wash/Pitts should be champs at the end.
