And the two that pick the Wings are Linda Cohn and Jesse Rogers.

Oh, man.

This series is going to suck so bad. Even if the Wings win, it’s going to kill me.

I think being the underdog for the Wings is good. Maybe it’ll light that much needed fire under their butts.

As others have said. Good. I remember alot of people picking the Avs in 2008, too.

Well, Mr. Weber has made a good show of being a more controlled, mature hockey player this year. But it wasn’t that long ago that you could get him mad in a hurry with the right provocation. I wouldn’t mind seeing a little bit of that. Of course, to do that, you have to take care of the puck you your zone so you can dump it into his.  Bombs away.

With all my heart and emotions, I’ll be pulling for the Wings. If I was a degernate gambler putting down my hard earned cash, I’d put it on Bubba.

That stupid game tying goal with seconds to go on Saturday cost us a chance to play PHX, the Wings personal bitch over the last few years.

I’m not sure which is more ridiculous between Linda Cohn being an ‘expert’ or the fact that everyone there is picking the Preds.

Phx has won 5 in a row, and their goaltender is as good as Rinne.

Pass on a third straight year of cross country travel and late nights to start the playoffs.

Usually when Melrose picks against us, good things happen.

Score 3, give up 2, you win.  Is the offense there?  Maybe.  Is the defense there?  Again Maybe.  I just can’t see Bubba beating the Wings in this series unless Rinne steals it.  At that point I don’t think it would matter who the Preds were playing.

Isn’t ESPN and Hockey Expert an oxymoron?

Aaahhh, let ‘em pick.  I don’t give a shit.

The only thing that matters to me is the Wings playing playoff hockey.  And it had better be something way more different and better than that clusterfuch of a regular season.

I would also like to point out that ever since we lost to edmonton in the first round in 2006. They have been picking us to lose consistantly (2007 - WCF, 2008 - SC, 2009 - SCF, 2010 WCSF, 2011 WCSF)
