Anaheim vs. Boston in the finals. Boston in 7. Will go down as one of the most brutally physical SCF's ever.

Osgood simply can't play like he has been all playoffs, Detroit's weakness at goalie will be exposed by a better team. Calgary needs Regehr, pure and simple. Chicago needs more seasoning. Anaheim is big, fast and mean and look to be on the same sort of course they were in 07. Washington needs to look up 'playoff hockey 101'. Philly and Pittsburgh are both very good but won't make it past Boston. Boston...are beasts.

Should be a good SCF.

vancouver will win the cup.

The real reason I am here, is to try and understand the relationship of Flames fans and #12. I played the game at professional level

and still maintain contact with many pro players in the nhl and internationally.

The problem we all share is that we do think iginlla

is a great player, but we also think that he has been shorting his teamates on effort and determination.Stats will

show that he rarely will score when the game is on the line but he will contribute such as empty netters like calgarys 6-4 win on wednesday. Another thing is if you go back and

re read all flames articles

from 2005 on to todays they all are the same old ya we should have tried harder that effort wasnt good enough, we have got to come together as a team.

When is this bs going to end. Calgary has great players like cammy and landkow, bourqe nystrom, moss, these are players you could build an excuse free team and really get some respect around the league.There are a lot of people that are going to be pissed at this but I and

many others think the Cancer on Calgary is sittig

in the dressing room taking all the attention, all the accolades while others are getting no respect. I hope Cammalleri

does get traded to Toronto

for his own betterment, best thing to happen to Calgary in a long time. Keep it up Kipper your gonna need it Calgary.

Always love the underdogs...Calgary all the way...This team has so much depth they just need all their players back...Once Reager is back in the lineup...Look out...the world will be right again and Lord Stanley will be back in Canada...where it belongs. Go Flames Go!

Boston is too strong in every aspect of the game. They can beat you with any style the other team wants to play.

My 8 year old is cheering for the Sharks (the namesake of his Novice hockey team this year). In the East, I was expecting NJ to be in the final losing eventually to SJ.

Bring on who ever you want in the finals and it will be Boston in 5.

The Bears are hungry and the steaks are sitting in the cup.

Really nice to see Montreal and their classless fans out of the playoffs.Booing national Anthems and their own team .Shameful. Boston vs Detroit final.

Montrealís loss didnít surprise me. I had them missing the playoffs altogether, and if Ottawa hadnít let more than half the season go by before waking up, theyíd have been in and Montreal out (over the last 30 games of the season Ottawa and Pittsburgh had the best records in the NHL). The Habs are too thin on D, too small up front, and tried to capture lightning in a bottle one more time by riding a youngster (Price) in goal, as they did the last time they won the cup with Patrick Roy (all their wins in the playoffs that year were in OT and Roy was the difference). Price, unfortunately, ainít Roy.

Lundqvist is doing that for the Rangers and heís the sole reason why NY is up 3-1. Washington, on the other hand, has a playoff sieve in Theodore and an untried rookie to back him up. You canít ride that combination very far in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Brodeur used to be able to dominate like that over an entire playoffs - but heís no spring chicken and, as well, is coming off a serious injury. Carolina will win that series, I think. Pittsburgh never did have much trouble beating the Flyers and as long as Fleury is better than the Philly tandem in goal, theyíll have no problem dusting them off.

Vancouver rode Luongo, for the most part, in their series sweep of the Blues, but now things get a lot more difficult because, letís face it, St. Louis just squeaked in and are still about two years and 3 or 4 players away from being a serious Cup contender. The Hawks-Flames series will likely go 7 and then flip a coin. At the start I picked Anaheim as I see them as a veteran team with a strong D and goaltending who know how to win (they won the Cup two years ago), while San Jose has perfected the art of losing - or choking, take your pick. As for Detroit, any team with the likes of Lidstrom. Datsyuk, Zetterburg, Hudler, Franzen, Hossa, Rafalski, Cleary and the rest is a well-balanced powerhouse. Only Anaheim stands in their was of representing the west again, as I see it.

I don't think our friends in the east are watching the Canucks much this playoff season. They are fast, tough, defensively sound, and deep on the offense. Oh, and they also have a pretty good goalie ;) I'm an Edmonton fan, I can't believe I'm saying this. Canucks/Bruins in the finals. Canucks in 6.
