My 2010 Hockey Playoff Picks - Final Round

Wow, what a round! It would appear that Montreal Canadiens have a thing for making me look bad! I predict them to win in five games, they squeak by in seven or lose completely! As a die hard leafs fan, a deep-seeded, loathing, pit-of-my-soul hatred of the Montreal Canadiens has been in my blood since the beginning... but now it's personal! Just the same, give Philly credit for killing a few Goliaths of their own!

Chicago vs. Philadelphia

I have to say that Chicago has surpassed my already high expectations! It will be a lot of fun to watch them play, but after watching Philly manhandle Montreal earlier tonight, I don't think even the Hawks speed and youth will be enough to overpower them. Philly in seven.

My 2010 Hockey Playoff Picks - Round 3

Well, got my ass kicked AGAIN!!! The playoff Gods have not been kind to me this season! To make things worse, we are in serious danger of a Montreal vs. Chicago final for the cup, which means that we Leafs fans can look forward to a victory by either our arch rivals or the only other team in the NHL with a cup drought longer than ours! Brilliant.

Eastern Conference

Philadelphia vs. Montreal

Both teams have a lot of momentum behind them, but Halak's hot streak will be the difference. It pains me to say this, but the smart money is on the Habs this round (gasp). Canadiens in Six.

Wester Conference

San Jose vs. Chicago

I was a little reluctant to believe in the perennial chokers from the left coast, especially after their shaky first round performance, but the big guns did well against the wings. Just the same, the Hawks did manage to blow past the Luongo and the Canucks, which is a tall task to say the least. San Jose in Seven.
