Fun Playoff Predictions

I know it’s a little early for playoff predictions so I added a little fun to it for the holidays…..Here’s how it works:

1) Everyone makes their predictions by selecting the 8 teams you think will make it to the playoffs from each conference in order from 1 to 8. (I’ll use my predictions for example)

(E.G.)

Eastern Conference

1) Ottawa

2) Philadelphia

3) Tampa Bay

4) N.Y. Rangers

5) Carolina

6) Toronto

7) Montreal

8) Buffalo

Western Conference

1) Detroit

2) Dallas

3) Calgary

4) Vancouver

5) Nashville

6) Los Angeles

7) Edmonton

8) Colorado

2) You predict how far you think each team will make it in the playoffs.

So my predictions would look like this:

EASTERN CONFERENCE

Ottawa over Buffalo

Philadelphia over Montreal

Toronto over Tampa Bay

N.Y. Rangers over Carolina

Ottawa over Toronto

Philadelphia over N.Y. Rangers

Philadelphia over Ottawa

WESTERN CONFERENCE

Detroit over Colorado

Dallas over Edmonton

Calgary over Los Angeles

Vancouver over Nashville

Vancouver over Detroit

Calgary over Dallas

Calgary over Vancouver

STANLEY CUP FINALS

Calgary over Philadelphia

3) You may make 1 change to your prediction on ONLY the following days.

February 1st

March 1st

March 20th

RULES OF CHANGING YOUR PREDICTION

1) It must consist of switching 2 and ONLY 2 TEAMS. (It is impossible to only move 1 team)

2) You CANNOT change your STANLEY CUP WINNER.

3 Your prediction MUST be submitted by the end of this year.

4) For changes send a PRIVATE MESSAGE to GaryRoberts7.

    Nittymaki reminds me of Nabokov. He shines for a game or 2 and then blows up. I lost all respect for the guy when he got scored on from center ice this year.

    Look for him to be good off and on in the regular season, but he’s no playoff gem. He makes alot of the mistakes that Lalime used to make when he was with Ottawa. Could it be that the team is making Nittymaki look better than he is? I think so.

  2. my_sphincter says:

    the Leafs and Oilers have crappy teams. they will both make the playoffs, but look for them to make an early exit.

    remind me..whens the last time leafs won a cup or even made a run for that matter?

  6. V3n0m says:

    Of course you’re weary (or maybe you mean “wary”) of putting them very high in the playoffs…you’re a Leaf fan. By nature, it is impossible for you to give credit to Ottawa.

  7. V3n0m says:

    Oh come on, how can you belittle another team’s playoff performances when 1) Toronto has only proven itself to be able to beat Ottawa in the last 5 years, with a fluke series against the Islanders being the only other team; 2) Other teams have won a Cup since expansion; 3) This playoff “resurgence” has, by all accounts, proven to be comprised of riding a hot goalie through all that terrible nonsense they call a defense every year.

  8. PastParticiple says:

    YEAH GO COYOTES GO !!!

    PHOENIX FOR THE CUP !!!

    Even if I’m From Montreal… COYOTES IN MY HEARTH !!!

  9. shakrmakr says:

    I like your East part of the playoffs (I think Philly doesn’t have that great of a team) but I don’t like your West part except the fact that the Oilers don’t make the playoffs. I could see MacTavish and Lowe ruining the season for the Oilers. They are already screwing with Morrison’s head and haven’t even bother to trade for a proven scorer. If they do make the playoffs it is an early exit for them.

  10. FoppaFlyers21 says:

    We’ll see…. just remember this post come playoff time. I just have a bad feeling about the Flames. They’re gonna choke. They are way too dependant on the play of Iginla. However, you could say the same thing about my Flyers and Forsberg.

    LOL…dude have u watched any flames games???

    dependant on Iginla?????? he has struggled to whole year yet were still putting up wins…

  14. 92-93 says:

    obviously – YOU ARE AN IDIOT – when you don’t read my post and the TITLE OF MY POST and make fun of my own leaf biases. i am OBVIOUSLY NOT TAKING THIS SERIOUSLY.

    lighten up, and grow up.

  15. 92-93 says:

    yup. it is a joke. i dunno if it is a bad one though.

  16. 92-93 says:

    wow, if you can oversimplify each Leaf run since 1992 (and overlook other playoff series wins) and reduce it to a hot goalie (true – Potvin, Cujo) and completely overlook how many of these squads were riddled with injuries, etc., then i guess “by all accounts” you need to do your homework.

    its funny though. everyone finds a way to belittle any accomplishments the leafs make. they are among the top-3 most successful playoff teams in the East since 1999. the ottawa teams they beat year-in and year-out are usally ranked very high in the conference and the leafs do everyone in the conference a favour by beating these very strong ottawa teams. i doubt if other teams could do this on a consistent, annual basis.

  17. 92-93 says:

    hmmm, yeah, but you see i am replying to the post this guy made and NOT stating that the leafs are about to enter a dynasty period.

    you see muckies, you always seem to read a post completely different from everyone else. and that is not a complement by the way.

    as for the leafs future, once again you illustrate the lack of knowledge by SOME non-leaf fans (just like you did at the start of the season when everyone was saying how poor the leaf prospects were … [sneezes:] ‘aaacchhooosteenandwellweood.’).

    There are not many teams in the East that can claim to be a ‘cup team’ and toronto is – as usual – not as bad as everyone claims they are. oh, and muckies, they ARE starting over. but unlike other teams, they don’t need to finish in last place to get the first pick or get an expansion draft. they are proving this year and the next couple of years that you can REBUILD AND BE COMPETITIVE at the same time.

  18. 92-93 says:

    hmm, the last time they made a run was in 2002 where they finish 2 wins short of the cup finals. they also made it to the final four in 1999, 1994, and 1993 (when they were within one win of making it to the final).

    the last time they won the cup was in 1967, the second-longest drought in the NHL behind the Blackhawks and just ahead of the Bruins, Sabres, Blues, etc.

  19. habs79 says:

    The 7-game game tilt they had couple years back was not as close as a 7 game seris is. Philly dominated all their home games winning by three goals or more. While in Toronto the Leafs barely won eachtime in OT.

  20. habs79 says:

    Which goalie do you think will be the starter for the playoffs?

  21. 92-93 says:

    here, i’ve posted this before but though you might be interested in it:

    I’ve done my own rankings and based them on which teams CONSISTENTLY make the playoffs and go beyond the first round since 1999.

    13. Florida____4___0___4___0___.000__(Round 1 exit: 2000)

    First, this provides only a fraction of NHL history (post-1999) so it is a pretty narrow time frame. if you wanted to expand the frame to the early-1990s then you would see the Habs move up in the rankings and the Leafs remain about where they are (thanks to the 1993 and 1994 playoff runs). The point is, i’ve seen much more narrower historical framing in some posts (re: ‘the Leafs are chokers and can’t get past the first and second round’). Overall the best team in the East since 1999 is the Devils hands down.

    Second, as for calgary, edmonton, and vancouver, all i know is that since 1991, none of these 3 teams have had the consistency that the Leafs have had in the playoffs. period.

    Since their cup win in 1989, the Flames have had one cup run (last season) but missed the playoffs in 1992 and from 1997-2003. Since their cup win in 1990 and their two conference finals appearances in 1991 and 1992, Edmonton have missed the playoffs 1993-1996 and in 2002. Post-1999, the Oilers have never made it beyond the first round and only made the playoffs 4 times (losing all four series to Dallas). Vancouver went to the finals in 1994 but missed the playoffs entirely from 1997-2000. Post-1999 the Canucks have either missed the playoffs or lost in the first round (with the exception 2003 where they lost in the 2nd round).

  22. flyersfan10897 says:

    whoever is playing better. i still have to lean toward esche though, because he’s got the experience and showed he can handle the playoffs. But he needs to get some games in while hes healthy. But to be perfectly honest, i would have no problem with niittymaki getting the start. his numbers are better than esches, most likely because the team has clamped down on defense since all the injuries, and he definitely remains calm and isnt phased by much. the most important thing is that hes a big save goalie. The flyers havent won 5 straight by niittymaki giving up crappy goals. hes held his own against good teams, and has been amazing at the end of games.

  23. flyersfan10897 says:

    that goal from center ice wasnt exactly a shot that fooled him or anything. i was at that game, and do you know why that shot went in? because, like the other 20,000 people in the building, niittymaki was watching the replay of an amazing move by forsberg at the other end. The fans were just as confused as he was. Not a single person had any idea what had happened.

  24. 92-93 says:

    i should note that the comparisons between the leafs and the 3 western clubs are 1999-2004. if you want to go back to 1991-2004, here are how the 6 Canadian teams have faired:

    ______________GP___W___L___Pts __Pct

    4. Calgary______58___26__32__51___.448__(Cup Finalists 2004, Round 1 exit: 1991, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, missed playoffs every other year)

    5. Ottawa______69___31___38__62___.449__(Round 1 exitS: 1997, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2004, Round 2 exit: 1998, 2002, Round 3 exit: 2003)

    6. Edmonton____79___32___47__64___.405__(Round 1 exit: 1999, 2000, 2001, 2003, Round exit: 1997, 1998, Round 3 exit: 1991, 1992)

    To be fair to Ottawa, much of the 1990s was spent as an expansion club and they didn’t even exist for 1991 and 1992. however, in the years that they have been competitive, the Sens have been extremely ineffective in the playoffs. i think this will change this year though.

    Montreal won the cup in 1993 and if you ask any leaf fan, we’d gladly trade in our more consistent playoff record since 1991 for a cup championship. that being said, the habs had to rebuild in the late-1990s after the Roy trade.

    but I don’t think leaf fans would trade Canuck and Flames fans for their lone Cinderella runs in 1994 and 2004 respectively or with the Oilers and Sens and their lacklustre playoff performances. During this time frame, the leafs have played and won more playoff games and series than any other Canadian team since 1991. Along with Vancouver and Ottawa, they have also missed the playoffs (4 times) the fewest times of any Canadian team (Montreal – 5 times, Calgary – 8 times, Edmonton – 5 times).

    what does this have to do with this year? absoultely nothing. right now the Leafs and the Habs seem to be the weakest Cdn. clubs of the 6. they also have the weakest farm system (although that is slowly beginning to change). the good news is that they DO have some solid young guys to build around.

    i just thought it would be interesting to look at this time frame because it seems like non-leaf fans are STILL living in a pre-1991/Ballard era when the leafs just flat out sucked. i think the new NHL is going to see all 6 Canadian NHL clubs make the playoffs on a regular basis. the leafs won’t have the same economic advantages on-ice as they once did but they will have this advantage in off-ice matters (scouting, coaches, etc.) and as the cap continues to climb, the leafs will regain just a bit of the on-ice economic edge they used to have (remember, the leafs couldn’t take advantage of such … um, advantages … until Ballard lost control of the club and the Leafs were led by the likes of Fletcher/Burns/Gilmour and Quinn/Sundin/Cujo-Belfour).

  26. habs79 says:

    They should give Niittymaki the starting job and let him go with it. Esche just doesn’t seem to have the flexability to be the “big-save” type goalie.

  27. 92-93 says:

    in terms of the 2003 1st round series, i think the games in T.O. were quite close and probably more indicative of how competitive the leafs CAN be with the flyers. in the 2004 2nd round series – with the exception of game 6 – the leafs were clearly the better team.

    but in Philly the Leafs have had trouble winning for some reason. maybe it was the lacklustre D, maybe Belfour seems rattled in Philly, maybe Domi was bored waiting in the penalty box for another fan to fall in on top of him, i dunno.

    all i do know is that home-ice advantage is huge when it comes to more recent Philly-Toronto series.

    The Leafs can bring back all the old geasers they want, it will fail just like it has every previous year. Their defense needs more than just a big name.

    Detroit & Ottawa in the finals. Ottawa wins. This is their year. Redden or Heatley for the Conn. But that’s almost impossible to predict.

  39. Flyaz says:

    Yeah, those are the same people that said Philadelphia lost too much in the off season, who the hell is going to score for them, and Pittsburgh is going to win there division. I didn’t say much at the time or now, just laugh to myself a little more each time the Flyers win.

  40. Flyaz says:

    It’s not like Toronto was in the lower third of the league in payroll before the lockout either. In fact Philly’s payroll was 5.7 higher then Toronto. In pre lockout days that’s not that much, and had they played last season the payrolls would have been almost identical. So to say the Leafs didn’t spend the cash to win and the Flyers tried to buy a cup is a ridiculous comparison.

  41. Flyaz says:

    Where the hell is ottowa? Not on your predictions, but on a map.

    I’ll buy you tickets for the second round match-up between the Bruins and Ottawa if the Bruins actually beat the Flyers in the playoffs. I will do this after I eat my underwear and since I’ve never eaten my underwear and I don’t really feel like buying playoff tickets, I guess I’ll just hope that the Flyers beat the Bruins. Wait a second, they are the Bruins, and I’m not worried. My team is 3-0 against yours this season, and will without a shadow of a doubt have home ice in that series….sorry for the sarcasm, I just don’t think the bruins would have much of a hope against the Flyers in the playoffs.

    Obviously my biggest concern is lleaving the Rangers out of the playoffs at this point in the East considering they are in the East playoff picture right now. Also, Atlanta and Boston are making a run as we speak (I am ot so worried about Florida and NYI). Toronto and Montreal are not looking too good right now but both are in position to take the 6th and 7th seeds and NJ looks good/bad enough to finish in 8th. i think TB will turn it around and start a run at home-ice advantage but its a little too late so they’ll finish 5th (perhaps the olympics will spur on the Lightning’s big 3). My final switch on March 20th will likely involve the Rangers in some capacity. hopefully by that time they will be in the bottom 4 of the East – making any switch a little easier.

    In the west I like my predictions but I am concerned about including the Oilers at the expense of the Kings. i am still certain about the Sharks making the playoffs and maybe they will finish higher than 8th and maybe as high as 6th or 7th. For my next switch on March 1st I think I will switch Calgary with Vancouver. The Ducks look good too but the Wild and Coyotes just don’t look good enough to make the playoffs.
