The Diachronic Barber Pole Observations of a Recovering Hockey Exile

Idle Speculation

April 12, 2011, by Homme De Sept-Iles

Unscientifically yours.  The NHL 2010-11 playoff seedings.  And some arbitrary numbers.  It’s best out of seven.

West
Chicago 4
Vancouver 1
LA Kings 4
San Jose 3
Phoenix 2
Detroit 4
Nashville 1
Anaheim 4
East
Washington 4
New York 2
Philadelphia 2
Buffalo 4
Montreal 4
Boston 2
Tampa Bay 4
Pittsburgh 2



Complete round by round conjectures are here.

I really want the Hawks to win, but they’re not the same team as last year.

LA Kings 1
San Jose 4

Yeah, ok.

Phoenix 2
Detroit 4

I think this is the year the Wings have be saying “it’s all about the playoffs” – watch out.

Nashville 0
Anaheim 4

Most likely series to be a sweep.

East
Washington 3
New York 4

Goalie steals a series.

Philadelphia 2
Buffalo 4

2 teams going in opposite directions

Montreal 2
Boston 4

Bet with your head, not your heart.

Tampa Bay 4
Pittsburgh 2

Yes. I agree.

Montreal is the one pick I was most cerebral about.

Well then, I guess we’re going to find out how ‘cerebral’ you really are.

This is a fair guess. Chee Ka Go. They have that “we know how to win now” mentality. Vancouver lacked finish in the four games I saw them in this season. They’re a strange outfit. I am mystified as to how they put together 54 wins.
