    These guys are insane on the ice. Don't get me wrong, I want my Av's to pull through this goalie BS. They've seemed to be doing better with their Defense lately, but the Sens are kicking the hell out of pretty much any team they meet.

    They are 28 Wins 7 Losses 3 OT Losses. Thats the best in the whole league.
    Flyers are looking much better than they did in the beginning. Vancouver is starting to look like hell.

    I think the Sens will take it.

    You?

    It's a little early to call a winner, no? Still more than 1/2 the season to go.. and a lot can happen in 41 games.

    They probably will but I'm still rooting for the Leafs.

    I just wish the Sens could have won it with Lalime, I hate Hasek. :mad:

    I think it's a bit early in the season to say anything that drastic, who knows what will happen once the playoffs start.

    Clayj, normally I would laugh at that, but this year the canes are 9 spots ahead of the canucks. I never thought I'd see the day. Carolina used to be the team that nobody would want to see because it was a guaranteed win, people would be desperately trying to get rid of their tickets.

    People seem to forget that Carolina played against Detroit for the Stanley Cup back in 2002. And this year we've got Eric Staal, who's a hockey scoring machine.

    True, it's still early, but damn are they doing well. Watching the Av's right now. 2-0 over the Wild. Two breakaways in under a minute.

    I feel bad for the Bluejackets... Their stats are horrible. lol

    Edit: Av's won 4-2, 3 breakaways. Very nice. Just need to keep going at this point.

    Flyers all the way. This will break the 24-year jinx of no city championships. They've beaten the Senators twice already, and are red hot. I just wish they didn't have so many players in the Olympics, so they could rest for 2 weeks, instead of playing and risking injury **knock-on-wood**. ;)

    Definitely. I got in an argument today about this. One of my friends, who is more of a die-hard Flyers fan than I am (not that I don't love Flyers myself), said that winning all these recent 1 goal games (they did it again tonight) makes them a bad team. They should be killing many of these teams by 3 or 4 goals. I think by winning all these 1 goals, they are proving that they can win close games. During the playoffs, how many blow outs do you see? Most games are decided by 1 or 2 goals. The Flyers will be tough to beat.

    Hate to break to you Sen's fans, but the Bruins just Manhandled them 4-2. But anyways, I think it'll be a great cup no matter whos playing because at least there will be one:p

    I absolutely agree. They have turned a grueling 11-game road trip into a points bananza. I think right now, they are the best team in hockey, but then again we have a long way to go. The most amazing thing about this half of the season is that they had so many injuries, but the young guys (Carter, Eager, Meyer, richards, Umberger) from the Phantoms have been outstanding. Just wait until Primeau, Stevenson and Dejardins come back. The team will be stacked. I hope this is the year.

    I'm happy that the canucks finally won tonight. Before tonight they had only 2 wins in their last 10 games :eek:.

    I'm also very pleased with the way the kings game is going. Only half way through the second and I already have 8 points from corvo and conroy :).

    A little early to predict.

    All I hope for is Canadian teams (with the exception of the Leafs) to go deep into the playoffs. I'll be cheering for the Canucks and the Sens.

    Couldn't agree more. As a tender growing up in minor hockey I despised him, I still hate his style. The Sens almost lost me as a fan after that signing, but then they got me back when they traded Hossa for Heatley, and cemented it with McGratton.

    Sabres fan here...they're breathing down the Sens' necks with great all-around team play. Agree that Ottawa will be tough to beat, but don't count out Buffalo in the Northeast.

    I like how you said "Go Leafs Go" after you had said "lets not kid ourselves." :p

    But yeah, go Leafs go!!


    I think there are a few teams out there who can give the Sens a run for their money, but it's definitely not the Leafs. Hopefully the Sens get knocked out of the playoffs early so that the Leafs don't have to face them. How many times has Ottawa annhilated the Leafs? :(

    Yes but how many times have the Leafs knocked the Sens out of the playoffs in the past few years even when they were out classed in the regular season? I'll give you a hint: every single time they've played them. ;) Sure it'll have to come to an end eventually but the Leafs own the Sens in the playoffs.

    Still the Sens and Flyers scare me the most when facing the Leafs in the playoffs.
