Westy - The Panthers have been out sunning themselves for quite a few days, while the Bruins were lucky to survive this series. Things are not going to be any easier for the Bruins…in fact, there are in serious trouble. But…but, Westy, the Bruins won all four games this year against the Cats? The playoffs are a different beast. The Bruins are coming in this series looking old and slow and the Cats have confidence from not only beating Tampa quite easily, but because they beat the Bruins last year. If the Bruins can get a little rest, they might make a series of this. Florida in 7

jimmi - They're still playing out east.. er... west? Jeez... what a weird league. Anyhow, despite the new uni, Boourns are not going  to keep playing for much longer. Especially when 18 year old Sam Bennett returns to flip flop hockey. With whatever sand hockey drugs Lu is pushing on SoBeach ice, expect Cats in 5.

 Kent - Now that the annual humiliation of the Leafs is over with, we can get down the cold hard truth: the Bruins aren't as good as anyone thinks, and could have easily been on the other side of that Game Seven outcome. Florida is ready to push for another run at their first Cup, and I don't feel like Boston's the team that's gonna stop that in it's tracks. Florida in 6

Westy – This is a tougher series to call as the season series was 2-1 in favor of the Rags, but the one game they lost was a blowout. The two teams had a relatively easy series to start, so they should be good to go. Both goalies are top notch and this series will probably be determined by a goal each game. Both teams have top 3 special teams, so this will be a great battle and a coin flip. Rangers in 7

jimmi - If there was a series where I'd prefer both teams lose this would be it. Except for a bunch in the 1st round... but it's still the 1st round in some places. Or one place. Weird, weird league. We know some at NM, will be rooting for the Rags, eh, Yankee. As much as I'd like to see Rempe getting a 100 game ban for laying out Upchuck, I expect our (almost) Guentzel will be the difference-maker - dammit! (despite not being a difference-maker in Round 1. He's saving his magic for Round 2, just like Pete. He is, isn't he?) This means by random disconnected logic, Canes in 6. Dammit. Then again, it could be Rags in 6 - probably will and I still couldn't care less. 

Kent- The Rangers are good. Not great, but good. We saw the Canucks play them twice this season and the Rangers had to get officiating help to get an OT win in the first meeting before getting embarrassed on home ice in the second meeting. One thing I do know: they're better than Carolina. I don't know how Carolina has as much success as they do, but they always seem to be hanging around. They'll have their hands full with a Rangers team that has a lot of weapons and a clear advantage in goal. Rangers in 6

COMMENTS

Comment System How-To

New NM, new comment system. Still uses words and stuff. Hover over the icons to see what they do. 

The most vital function is image embedding. Paste the link to the image in the comment box. When the comment is posted, the image appears. Most of  the time. 

NOTE: Remove the non-image name jibberish. If the image link has any stuff after the file extension - usually a ? with directives like: woo.gif?size=480 blah blah - delete up to and including the ? - simples.

GIF it up for Westy! Or still life in rum.
NOTE: Comments refresh every 30 seconds. Not fast enough for most of our lightening round contestants. We are working to increase the refresh speed. Just... not working too hard... because NM labour guidelines. Thanks for being patient!
