Not to jinx us or anything, because we know how quickly the Blues play can go downhill so quickly especially in the shortened season, but just to see if others feel the way I do.
My thoughts in order,
San Jose (2-1 loss, 4-3 OT win, 4-2 win) Did anyone watch the Playoffs last year????
Vancouver (4-3 SO win, 3-2 loss, 1 game left) Don't feel like the Blues fear this team and it's a team we can dominate the physical play, plus fuck them for '09 playoffs
Mighty Ducks (6-5 SO loss,4-2 loss, 2-1 OT win) Even though we haven't played them well this year, if we have to play on the road first round, I see at least a win against in SoCal.
FuckBlackhawks (3-2 loss, 3-0 loss, 4-3 SO win, 2 home games left) Honestly wouldn't mind this match up in the second round, barring the nail biting collapse of falling to 8th seed, but does anyone really think that Crawford/Emery is that scary? If Elliot keeps his head could, see this being one of the better series the Blues have been a part of in awhile.
LA Kings (4-1 loss,
4-1 win 6-4 loss, 4-2 loss) Seriously have we ever beaten this team? I don't think I have seen a team get inside the head of an opponent more the the Kings/Blues. I don't want to see the Kings ever. Period. Even if that means losing a game to forfeit home ice advantage to not play them in the first round.
I know Minny is still a possibility and would welcome them in the first round, but I honestly there the 7th seed and props to JD Corp for sneaking the BJ's into the 8th seed on the final day of the season.
Thoughts? Let me hear them, and please feel free to tear my rankings apart, I'm a big boy
Oh what's that I left
Detroit Detwat out of the playoffs? Call me an optimist
