A team with superstar scoring and question marks in net vs a team with question marks in scoring and a superstar in net.

Call of Duty has taught me that most problems can be solved by RPG. So I'll go with Ducks in 6

Gonna go against the grain and say that Rinne steals the series, Preds in 7.

Hiller is still saying he's not ready, so it looks like it'll be Ellis in net... and because of that, this series is a toss-up for me. Ellis has been good in limited play so far this year, but he's had a very mediocre career sans one good season. I can see the Preds taking advantage of him, and they don't need superstars to do it.

The question is whether Rinne can match the Ducks top lines and steal a game or two. I think he can - Preds in 6.

Ellis has done well in the playoffs before with Nashville... He's no Hiller, but still...

NSH - 6

Honestly...i dont see the ducks scoring more on Rinne than the preds will score on the evening rotation guy. If Hiller is set and ready to play playoiff hockey ill be dead wrong of course.


FUCKIN PUMPED FOR SOME PLAYOFF HOCKEY BOYZ ??

latest on emery is he will miss game 1. nothing more than that. if he can play in this series & stay healthy the preds will have a hard time in this series.

Anaheim can manage the Preds even without Hiller. 7 games, though.

Anyone think Ryan will get a suspension for the stomp? It was obvious and intentional and the NHL has come down pretty strict on these types of things before.

Can't find youtube yet.

Pronger got 8 games for the same thing a few years back.

The only thing Bobby has going for him is that he is not known for this sort of behaviour. 8 games with out Bobby and Jonas... *sigh* I don't even wanna think it.

I don't think he'll get 8 games, Pronger's was on the leg and has a history of suspensions. I'd guess between 1 and 3 games. If the league wants to get harsh they'd probably go for rest of round 1 but that seems very unlikely.

I suppose Ryan could claim that he was just trying to kick out the puck... but yeah, it looked like an intentional stomp to the boot. But since it didn't result in an injury, I could see the NHL overlooking this one entirely.

Ouch, my foot hurts watching that one. Should probably get a game or two.

Hamsterkill

Yeah, that'll probably warrant a game or two if the Stoll hit did.

He should get anywhere from 2-5 games for that IMO.

2 games for Ryan.

04-16-2011, 06:11 PM
:dunno: I don't get the NHL. If that's worth 2 games then Stoll should have gotten 3-4.

Hamsterkill
04-16-2011, 06:13 PM
And Demers didn't get anything, so... yeah. Fun stuff.

I don't think the Demers hit was as bad as people are making it out to be.

And I agree with both suspensions FWIW. That stomp is WAY worse than Stoll's hit if anything.

Completely agree.

I would tend to agree as well.

Ducks tie it at 2-2. Selanne scored his 5th goal of the series. Corey Perry's SHG broke a 3-3 tie and the Ducks pushed on from there.

Man, NHL is baffling. Ruutu's hit on Erat that at worst is very slightly late, no contact with the head gets a 1 game suspension.

I don't think I've even had the choice to watch any of this series on TV. Like the Ducks and Preds have been black balled by VS or something

Only one of the Pens games has been on VS. I don't exactly know how they chose their games.

I have Root Sports (aka Fox Sports Pittsburgh) and Comcast sports net so I get the Flyers games there.

VS I thought would do the same thing the NFL does and broadcasts the game by location, yet I've had double broadcast games on CSN and VS or FSP and VS. Which makes no sense.

That was something else. He embarrassed Legwand TWICE before deking Rinne and putting a backhand past him.

Yes Emery made some huge saves... but what the hell was Carlyle thinking? Guy can't move in his crease and has no puck management...
