    Living in Calgary I would love nothing more than a rematch of 1989. Flames vs Habs. The Flames are the only team to win the Cup in Mtl. During the run in 04 this city came alive, it was awesome. Flames are and will always be my second team. Lets hope Superfans prediction comes to fruitation. Go Habs!

  8. Montreal has the team. If Carey Price is good, no one has nothing to worry about. Montreal will win the stanley cup If carey Price is good. I’m not really worried with Price because he’s been playing under 21,000 fans, and hes used to lots of pressure.

  9. Hey, Superfan, ur prediction is the same as my friens, tom’s. Except that he had Penguins over Rangers.

    Habs in 5 (I was leaning toward a sweep. I really was.)
    Pens in 7 (No way they’ll dispose of the Sens in 4 or 5.)
    Caps in 6 (Philly has no defense at all.)
    Rangers in 6 (Brodeur won’t save the Devils this time around.)

    Wings in 6 (Underestimated.)
    Sharks in 6 (Too consistently good a team for inconsistent Calgary.)
    Avs in 7 (Minnesota… pfft. Trap this!)
    Ducks in 6 (I despise Anaheim, but they’ll beat the Stars.)

  11. #12 Senet 1 says:

    Hab in 5 against Bruins
    Pens in 4 against senators
    NYR in 7 against NJ
    Flyers in 7 against Caps – I am picking an upset here, flyers have a good powerplay and if they get the goaltending I think the caps may wilt in a long series.

    Detroit in 5 against Preds
    Sharks in 6 against Flames ( would like to see Flames win but I do not think they have enough to be the sharks.
    Avs in 7 against Minnesota
    Dallas in 7 over Ducks
    I see Detroit coming out of this conference against our habs. Original six match up Habs did not look very good against the wings this year but I think the wings are going to find a different team to play against come the finals.

    Hey Iceman, if I understand the seeding process of the playoff, the habs can only play the capitals if the are in the conference final.

    EAST:
    Habs in 5(we’ll lose game 4 in Beantown)

    Caps in 6
    Rangers in 7
    WEST:
    Wings in 7
    Sharks in 6
    Avs in 6

    Habs then face NYR & win in 7(Lots of OT)
    Caps will beat Pens in 7(OT winner by none other than OV8)

    Avs beat Wings in 6
    Sharks beat Stars in 5

    Habs play Caps and win in 6(More OT wins for Price)
    Avs play Sharks and win in 7

    Final Matchup: Colorado vs Montreal aka Theodore vs Price aka Sakic vs Saku

    Montreal wins in 5 @ the Bell Centre!!! GO HABS GO!

    East:
    HABS 5
    Rangers 7
    Pens 6
    Flyers 6

    Habs over flyers 6
    rangers over pens 7

    habs over rangers 6

    Stanlet Cup
    Habs Ov Sharks

    West:
    Det 6
    An 6
    Sharks 5
    Avs 7

    Det 6
    Sharks 7

    Sharks 6

  17. If Saku Koivu gets back for game 2, they are sweeping the series. I just hope the habs aren’t thinking that it’s going to be too easy. The Bruins are pissed and game 1 really matters for the habs.

  18. #19 hablifer says:
    April 9, 2008 at 4:56 pm

    I would be very surprised if Koivu played until at least game 5, especially if the habs are winning. Komisarek and Ryder will play.

    Ottawa is brutal. Too bad you can make the playoffs exclusively based on your team’s play in the first 2 months of the regular season. They are absolutely not a playoff quality hockey team. Anyone catch Alfredson eating French fries with his head turned while his teammate was bleeding out on the ice?

  20. #21 Ice Man says:

    She starts tonite Baby. The Road to Lord Stanley’s Cup.

    Lets go boys. Put the pedal to the middle and not look back…….

    GO HABS GO………

  21. The bear trap has been set, the BRUIN will be captured in 4 games and then sent to the local minni putt,lol.

    The Evgeni Malkin Show strikes again. Crosby did manage to get in a nice crosscheck on Redden, however, upon being thrown to the ice by Neil and not Redden. And my favourite part of that play was how Redden simply stood up to Crosby’s slapping attempts without making any kind of attempt of his own to throw a real punch at the little girl, yet Whitney comes in to fight Redden and not Neil, who threw Crosby to the ice and hurt his feelings… perhaps even broke one of his nails.

    Anyway, I thought that Ottawa would bring a better effort in the playoffs. I was obviously wrong. What a disgrace.

    Colorado-Minnesota was easily the most entertaining game last night. That’s playoff hockey! Forsberg looks like Forsberg so far.

    Go Habs! Get that critical game 1 win and re-instill doubts in the Bruins’ minds.

    This has been the longest 4 days of my life.

    Bring on Da Big Bad Goonie Bruins. The Habs are afraid of no team. We will fight til the End.

    We are the Champions. We are the Champions, No room for losers, cause we are the Champions, Of The World……..

    “WHAT YA GOIN TO DO WHEN THE BADASS HABS RUN WILD ON YOU”!!!!!

    just heard that Brisecrap is playing instead of Obyrne. UNBELIEVABLE!
    bruins will be hitting and Carbo puts in his smallest and SOFTEST player!
    obviously he has learnest NOTHING ABOUT TURNOVERS !

    Go Habs Go!
    Habs in 5
    Look after Chara and the series is done.
    Bring on the Flyers next round.

  26. #27 Ice Man says:
    April 10, 2008 at 12:37 pm

    I agree. Not a good move by Carbo. Breezer is not tuff enuff for the Bruins.
    Bad Move already and the Series is not even started yet. Next comes the line jugling if they get down a goal or two.

    Oh Boy it is going to be a Roller Coaster ride from now on. Hold on to your hats Boys & Girls…

    WOW…I can’t believe the number of Habs fans looking at beyond the first round with rose colored glasses. Habs over the Flames/Habs over the Sharks…etc

    Are u kidding me…Take away the 16 points away from the Habs againts the Bruins in the regular season and they are simply ordinary…in fact the Bruins have a better record againts the rest of the league ( Check the fatcs…they don’t lie! )

    I know…I know…Habs fans love to live in the past…it’s 86 all over again!

    Truth be told, the Habs will destroy the Bruins. However, they will not get past the Flyers.

    So wake up from your slumber my Habs fans…stop dreaming…and concentrate on the 2007/08 version and not the 1986 version of the Habs.

    Tony ( an intelligent hockey and bruins fan )

  28. Hey Tony,you and the Bruins are going golfing in 4or 5 games and can KISS MY HAB ARSE !!!!!

  29. #30 Tony from NB says:
    April 10, 2008 at 4:07 pm

    Yo Xtrahabsfan…..class act again….

    We may very well be golfing in 4 or 5 games….but will make certain we book your Habs a tee time in about two weeks after the Pens or Rangers make Price look like the second comming of Red-Light.

    BTW…better wipe your “arse” before you ask anybody to kiss it.

    Tony:

    Pointing out your own intelligence is a self-defeating exercise.

    That being said, it must be difficult for you, being so emotionally attached to a hopeless franchise. But don’t despair because there is help available, Tony. In fact, you might just find a lot more in the way of people that you can relate to and share your stories of disappointment with here: http://chat.mapleleafs.com/.

    After all, your story is becoming more and more like theirs with each passing year.

    Hey Tony, we crushed your piuny little bruins arse.
    J

  33. Just heard that Carolina is willing to hear offers for Eric Cole after the season, hmmm, seems to me that may be exactly what we need, a replacement for Ryder. Said to be asking for a defenseman and center “prospect”. Now if we can do something creative like that, and add a center this summer, lmao, from classically good to extraordinarily dominant.

  34. MONTREAL IS GOING TO KICK BOSTONS ASS IN THE FIRST ROUND!!!

    Fans of a fairness in sports, we may have a crisis on our hands as fans of Canadian teams. These refs have already cost two Canadian teams to lose hard fought games, and there seems to ne no end in sight.Please get in touch with your teams reps about this.

  36. in the stanley cup finals it will be montreal and san jose

  37. #38 rgillis says:

    I think it is going to be

    Habs in 6
    Flyers in 7
    Pens in 6
    Rangers in 6

    Detroit in 5
    Flames in 7
    Avs in 6
    Stars in 5

    Then Habs will beat the Philly in 6
    Rangers will beat Pens in 7
    Flames will beat Detroit in 6
    Stars will kill Avs in 5

    Habs beat Rangers in 7
    Flames in 6

    Montreal and Flames for the cup, keep er all Canadian.

    And i wasn’t going to mention the Brisbois thing, but since i read about it, what is up with that, i mean, he is not playing badly, but it is only going to take 1 or 2 mistakes to loose the series and with him on the ice it is bound to happen.

    We have to find a way to stop Lucic, Savard and Sturm. It will make the series even easier to win.

    My 2 cents, anyone want change??
