Nope. Canucks will beat the Blackhawks in the conference finals in 5.

Hilarious but no. Even the rampage Sedin has been on won't save the Canucks from choking like they're guaranteed to do.

I cant really think of a time when we've choked. We're no San Jose. We come in with average expectations of a good team. In my opinion, right now, we have the best squad since the 94 cup run.

My money is on Chicago this year, they got stiffed in the second round last year but they're definitely up for the long run this postseason. Although they probably need to unload Campbell or Seabrook by the trade deadline, they're way over cap limit for next year and losing either to waivers would be reprehensible for the presence they command.
What are you talking about? Neither Seabrook nor Campbell will be going anywhere for at least the next 6 years. Also, we made it to the conference finals last year, which is the 3rd round of the playoffs. Realistically, our biggest source of competition this year will come from San Jose, and maybe Vancouver. I'm very curious to see how the Canucks will hold up after their 10-odd road game odyssey this year.

14 Games I believe. It'll be a test for sure. But I really do hope we meet up with Chicago in the playoffs again. Its become a real rival, and we spanked you just the other day. All seriousness though...****in big fan of a lot of the boys on your bench. Couple of real good BC boys.

I wish I could say the same for the Canucks, but with Alexandre Burrows hairpulling antics, Kesler's recent hissy fit and the general douchebaggery of your D corps I find myself loathing half the team. I used to be a real big Vancouver fan, back in Naslund and Brendan Morrison's heyday, but yeah last year's series was pretty entertaining.

Thursday will settle the best in the west (Read: NHL).

yeaa, I think Kes is one of the best all around players in the league, and definitely the best all around American born player. I can see how Burr is a hometown kinda hero. In the same way that you probably like Byfuglien and I wish someone would get a skate up on him. But whats wrong with our D. I could see how Obrien could get on your nerves...but Edler, Salo, Mitchel, Ehrhoff?

I don't mind Ehrhoff or Edler, but Willie Mitchell is just a complete tool. I hate the way he plays and he's usually the first one to start chirping at Kane or Toews. O'Brien I don't like for obvious reasons, and Salo's play has really changed in the past few years for the worse I think. As for Buff, at times (like when he actually gives a ****, i.e. when he thought Burke would give him an Olympic spot) he can be pretty dominant, but for the majority of the time he's either invisible or making bad decisions. I'll admit he's gotten loads better but he rarely uses his physical presence, he has a cannon of a shot that he never uses, and he's got some serious motivation problems. Brouwer does everything Buff does at a fraction of the price, and has been one of our most improved guys this year. Honesty, I wouldn't be upset if Buff leaves, in fact I'd be pretty suprised if he stays past the end of this season.

Probably not but the Hawks are going to have to lose somebody by the trade deadline otherwise they'll be shit out of luck come summertime when the salary cap gets slashed.

I just figured they'd want to unload Campbell's colossal $7.1M contract before it becomes a fixture for the Hawks in the offseason.
