    Stanley, why are you askingthis? I thought you were certain they weren't going to make it?

    Have to agree with Ottawa. Should be a good match. B's need to expose the Sens average goaltending and soft defence (i.e. Gonchar and Karlsson). If they play their system should go no longer than 6 games IMHO.

    Best first round matchup would be NYR and NJ. That would be an absolute war!!

    Ottawa has a tough schedule to finish out. I won't be shocked to see them slip to 8th (or even 9th).

    I'm confused, Stanley. Are they making the playoffs or not??

    Actually, never mind. Don't even answer that one. I feel like I need a nap already.

    The best playoff matchup should be the 4-5.

    Flyers-NYR will be a great series to watch. So would Pens-Flyers or NYR-Devs (think that is the least likely though).

    Bs just need to stick to the 2nd, 3rd, 6th or 7th seed and I see a very winnable first round. (i.e. Bs-Ottawa, Ottawa-Bs, Bs-FLA, FLA-Bs)

    Yep. It will be sweet watching their D give a ton of pucks away to avoid the hit!!! That plus Neil headhunting and Carkner barking (assuming he plays). Oh man, LET'S GO!!!

    Doubt we'll see Carkner since they added what's his face from Florida (Lee?)

    But yeah, I've noticed Karlsson backs away from hits way to much for a supposed "Norris Canidate" .. not happening. I will enjoy the reaction from Ottawa fans very much when the Bruins elimiate then in 4-5 games.

    Just wondering Stanley, did you learn anything about the way you've posted recently and the reactions you got ?

    With the way you've backtracked, kissed butt and told posters that you loved them me thinks so.

    Lesson learned by you.

    You may be thinking of Gilroy who came to Ottawa for Brian Lee. As soft as Karlsson and with less skill. NYR gave up on him and he ended up in the Sunshine State. He is probably on a short leish and I can see the Sens wanting to "play it tough" by using Carkner if Gilroy craps the bed.

    Won't matter either way, though!!! Take your pick; pilon or softie?

    Stanley, I thought you said earlier that we would miss the playoffs by a point.

    It doesn't matter who we play in the first round. Whoever gets this honour will get valuable playoff experience, however, they will make an early exit.

    I don't think Ottawa is a lock at all.  Florida is only two points back and playing cream puffs this week while the B's are out west.  The rest of Florida's schedule is pretty easy.  If The B's play well they can hold them off but third seed is a distinct possibility.  New Jersey seems settled in the 6 spot.  Maybe them.

    I said in another thread that the Sens schedule means they are no lock for 7th. Staying in 8th won't be a piece of cake for them.

    At this point, it almost seems locked. Ottawa has been playing well but can't catch Jersey and I don't see the Caps or Sabres jumping into seventh place.

    Not to count my chickens, but the better question is who do the Bruins play in the conference finals? A match-up in round 2 against Florida bodes well for the Bruins as well so I'm already thinking about round 3.

    You all can yell at me later if my predictions don't hold true.

    Dez,  look at the Panters remaining schedule compared to the Bruins . They might just overtake the 2nd spot when it's all said and done.  If it comes down to games played head to head Florida holds the tie breaker.
    Bruins also have a harder schedule up ahead than the Panthers starting with this road trip.  By the time they come back home Panthers might be in 2nd unless they stumble somewhere and/or the Bruins get at least 2wins.
    Last night I was sure Panthers would lose ,  they go outshot 36-13 and still managed the 2 points.
