After a very tough season here we go in the worlds hardest Playoffs in Pro Sports. Just a short note to those that may be reading for the first time about this challenge. For several yrs. now we have picked the Winner of the Stanley Cup in late October. Just for fun and bragging rights. We got to pick just the winner.... that's it. Surprisingly we do real well and several years have more than just one winner.

Here's the final Set up for the playoffs followed by the names of the @addicts that find them selves still in the pool.

Washington Vs New York Rangers
Philadelphia vs Buffalo
Boston vs Montreal
Pittsburgh vs Tampa Bay

Vancouver vs Chicago
San Jose vs Los Angeles
Detroit vs Phoenix
Anaheim vs Nashville


So here are the friendly matchups:

Tango 55, BHW, Radiance and Popcorn vs. Lisa

Ship Maven and Calgon1 vs Nobodies Wings

Corky vs Nobodies Ducks

Nieciez vs Redstripe, Einstein

Earl_m vs Linda & Jim

Randy and Sportscruiser vs Nobodies New York Rangers.

Bread, Gram & Tobyn vs Nobodies Tampa Bay



ON the Sidelines after a very tough season JEM in Carolina, Keith & Rita, and good old Whimsey in St Louis, and Cruise Cutie in Colorado....... and Jamman in New Jersey.
Honourable mention after being eliminated after the first day of the Season one again bOB and his famous JHP's.

This year I have been contacted by one of our very own talented Cruise @ddicts who has offered up one of their HandyWorks as a Major Prize... not sure if it's a perpetual trophy and you have to give it back or you get to keep it. :biggrin:
But it really is going to be Major not like yrs past.:diablo:

Now even I can see that their are some real mismatches here and I encourage all to join in with idle threats and prognostications....

Game ON

Ahhh, so I did go with the team from where I grew up (Phila Flyers) not the state I grew up in (Jersey Devils) or the area I now live (Washinton Caps). So what out Red and E, here come the Flyers after ya!

I think the Finals for the Stanley Cup should be played on the rink on the Oasis of the Seas. Neutral ice for both teams .... Make it a two week cruise, with the loosers being thrown off the ship after the final game!



(See? There I go thinking, again!)

Having seen the Mariner's ice surface I guess if we kept the number of players to 2.5 aside we would entertain that thought. Of course the goaler can't leave the crease at all and "The Singers and Dancers" will perform.

Where did all the Detroit fans go ????
Well, BSeabob you know I am a die-hard Wingnut but since I picked the Caps I have to stick with them until at least the East is set in stone! THEN, I can only hope for a Wings-Caps final, which will put severe stress on my marriage and perhaps upon my fellow fans in section 424 when I show up at the Verizon Center in my Chelios sweater!

What?! You mean there's hockey life BEFORE you are a Redwing? Does this mean Rafalski and Modano have had a previous life prior to donning the Winged Wheel? I'm so confused and disillusioned!
