    I truly dipise the Caps and Ovechkin, so I was estatic that Montreal won last night. Fantastic game too. It was better than the Bucks-Hawks.

    I picked Vancouver and Pitt from the outset. Let's see if that comes to fruition.
    Vancouver looked great in the first round. They're such a deep team from top to bottom. Pittsburgh and Crosby will no doubt be in the finals. Like you with Ovechkin, I depise Crosby but I think its mostly because I'm jealous of how talented the kid is. He was amazing against Ottawa in the 1st round and proved why he's the best in the NHL. WOW.

      WOW .... kudos to the Habs for taking down Goliath last night.

      I expect quite a few changes in Washington this summer. Right now they have to find a way to get themselves tier one goaltender. Perhaps the Habs and Caps might talk some deals this summer seeing how Montreal will like go with Halak as their number one from now on and not Price.
      Fo' real Doc.

      I think in order for the Caps to get that #1 tender, they're going to have to give up some of that depth they have on the blueline - Alzner, Carlsson. I can't see the Caps dealing with Montreal, but I can see Lecavalier going to MTL for Price.

      Wouldn't be surprised to see Kiprusoff being dealt to Washington.

        Kipper's past his prime don't you think, Hoops? That would be a risky move in opinion.

          People slag on Sid beacuse he's vanilla. He doesn't have the pizzazz or give good interviews like Ovechkin, but all he does is win and lead his teams - Rimouski, team Canada - juniors and olympics and Pittsburgh. Ovechkin is flashy, but he's a terrible leader and he runs his mouth a bit too much.

          Vancouver addressed their bottom 2 lines in the offseason, and I think that will lift them above Chicago in the next round. They have much better depth than last season.

            I don't think this season was his fault, Doc. The Flames had a tough time scoring. Put him on a team like the Caps, and they'd be going to the finals next year (providing they don't give up Semin or Backstrom for him). Calgary would gladly give up Kipper for Alzner - who played his junior hockey in Calgary with the Hitmen and Carlson. They'd probably find a FA goalie to mind the net next season or just go with Irving.

                Ugh ... while I understand the reasoning in getting rid of Halak, this is going to set the Canadiens back a bit. Price is a dud, much like how Emery was in Ottawa. All the talent in the world, but their meathead mentalities have ruined them for the most part.

                Great move for St. Louis though.

                    True, he has a piss poor attitude and when your like that, places like Montreal and Toronto are the last places in the NHL you want to play. Everything he does is analyzed under a microscope. The Habs keeping Price doesn't make sense in my opinion.

                      ya, but halak is two years older than him and you hadn't even seen him until this year's breakout perfomance.

                      so, i mean price does have more potential whether he can capatalize on it is the question.

                        So puckheads and Leafs fans, you happy with the Versteeg deal last night? Great move by Burke, but the Leafs still need a centre.

                        Just read that my Sens signed Gonchar to a 3 year deal. Considering his age I really hope his body can hold up another couple seasons, but I don't think he'll be overworked like he was in Pittsburgh over these last couple years. Regardless, great mentor for a young defenseman like Karlsson and Kovalev will no doubt be happy to have one of his good friends on the team too.

                          Another strong signing from Burke and the Leafs with Colby Armstrong: http://tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=326253

                          OK, now I'm starting to get jealous.

                                I mean a 17-year contract? There's no way this guy plays until he's 44. I say the NHL has a right to void it. There has to be a term limit in regards to contracts. There are a lot of 10-15 year contracts popping up everywhere
