    Hockey

    So I decided instead of threadjacking the baseball thread I would post this for hockey discussion, especially with the playoffs coming up soon. Me I'm a Caps fan, started watching hockey in 03, fell in love with the Caps then and havent looked back even through the thin past few years. Anyways I'm so hoping the Caps make the playoffs :) I want to see the next level these guys have: Ovie, Semin, Green, Federov, Huet ect. its going to be great. Last nights game was incredible hearing 18k + chanting MVP after Ovie scored, then they show him and he starts pumping the crowd up with his hands...so great!

    im afraid of the Sens to be honest. when they are clicking, they are out of this world!

    barring injuries and bad penalties, the Wings have to be the favorite! buuuuut (and a big one) history shows the wings don't do much in the playoffs.


    **cool trivia fact** the wings have won the Presidents trophy 6 times. the next highest is 2! crazy huh!?!

    i know, right. 15-1 = WOW!! end of season (Sens) = barf
  11. The devils vs rangers....reminds me of the sweep a few years back.
    That is the best series of the first round.
    Ottawa won't do much.
    I think Detroit doesn't make it to the conference finals.
    I think its Montreal and Dallas....in the finals.

    Not to pick on the Wings but I highly doubt they are going all the way. They have to face either Anaheim or San Jose to get to the cup and I don't think the Wings have what it takes to get by either one of those two teams.

    As for the Sens, if they make the playoffs, I won't be surprised to see a first round exit. They just can't pull a string of wins in a row.

    I don't know how the next few days will play out, but I'm hoping that the Caps can make it, if nothing else to get some playoff experience. I'm hoping for a Florida win tonight, that coupled with a Caps win tomorrow puts caps in 3rd :) ahh its all wishful thinking. Its been the most fun I've ever had in hockey fandom the last few weeks that much I know. Verizon center has been rocking the last few games and tomorrow should be deafaning.

    What's your thoughts on Ovie for MVP? My thoughts are he should be a lock weather they make it or not. He scored 64 and 65 last night and it was great.

    In the end its ok, since Carolina lost if the Caps win tonight they take the division, if they lose their out of the playoffs. Its all up to them now!
