That’s right. I bleed blue and gold. Let’s go Sabres!
So how many out there think this prediction is off the wall? In all reality the West will probably come out on top this year. The top 4 in the west are probably better that anyone in the East. But that’s why they play the game. Drop the pucks already.

i think the west could end up exactly as you put it, but it could very easily be the bottom 4 that move to the second round. vancouver obviously has countless struggles in the past, detroits hurt, quick and rinne are great. i dont think buffalo could make it through washington or boston but i like the wishful thinking

I really think this is Vancouver's year to shine. With their D getting healthy in time for the playoffs and all the offensive weapons they have they will be tough to beat. I forgot about Zetterberg's injury, so that will hurt the wings chances. I think Buffalo's chances hinge on how many odd man rushes they give up. If they don't hang Miller out to dry they could go far.

I'd be glad that one of us would finally get one in your final scenario.
