Sorry Wingie fans. ( Not so much, actually ) No worries, that President's Trophy will keep you company on the links this year.

Looking back on my picks, Dallas screwed me. I knew the oilers would give Detroit fits but didnt see them winning the series. Rangers blew it big time, but I still think the Sharks are going all the way.

Huh, they screwed me too on my pick. But I'll bend over and take that one. I'll give you credit, you called the Oil. I thought there was no way. Rags plain ol forgot to show up, and I hope the Sharks are done soon.

So Breck and I were the only ones who had faith in the Avs, eh?

Shame on the rest of you.

Thanks for being so gracious, CO.

And yes I am ashamed that I didn't have enough faith in the Avs to pick them.

Not one of us picked the Oil either.

Ducks have got this one wrapped up. They'll go to a game 7 in Calgary.

Good, the Avs need every extra day of rest they can get with Lappy ailing and Tanguay still not at 100%.

Way to go, Ducks. Be prepared for the game of your life up there in Calgary. If they win, I'll be stunned.

What the heck is wrong with Lappy? I did not know he wasn't well.

dont be stunned . Ducks are playing with heart. Last game we were down 3 zilch and came back to score two to make it close. Yes it will be tough but how the Ducks played short handed putting 3 guys on the back line when the Flames had the puck behind the ducks net was awesome and gutty. They froze them in that situation many times. Oh, that was a great game and ducks deserved it with another bad call in the playoffs with the non goal/penalty. Yummy!

Flames will finish off the Ducks, its hard to beat the Flames in their house. Not impossible but going to be hard to pull off.

BTW I had Red Wings in a sweep. Did Selanne lose another tooth? Seems a bigger gap in his grill. Comeback player of the year! I guess everyone is comeback player of the year with the layoff in 04 and 05.

No way of knowing, it's the playoffs. Teams are a bit sketchy with the details of injuries at this time of year.

He hasn't been killing penalties, his ice time is down and he hasn't been nearly as effective. Something's wrong with him.

Best case scenario for the Avs is if they face the Ducks in the second round. There are too many matchup problems against San Jose.

I was hoping against hope that talent wins the Cup. Turns out it's still heart, guts, grit, goaltending and hard work. This is Red Wings One signing off...*gag*
