In any case I hope you're right.
Because the Avs have played well against the Stars this season when you throw out the shootout, which we do in the postseason. Because Turco has not been good in the playoffs, especially against Colorado in '04. Because I think our elite players (Sakic, Blake, Hejduk, Tanguay) will outperform theirs (Modano, Zubov, Lehitnen, Arnott). Because I think Wolski will add a spark to the team. Maybe we're due for some breaks.
Outside of Nashville there's not another team in the Western Conference I would have rather played in the first round than the Stars. I don't know, for some reason I have a good feeling about this series.
