(2) Depch - Boston | 5.32 GF | 3.25 GA | -300 (7) HABS - Montreal | 5.48 GF | 3.76 GA | +300 Season Series: 3-1 BOS These two teams met early in the season, where Montreal was struggling to get anything out of their lineup of Kamensky-Klima-Verbeek, Boston dismantled em for 3/4 games. Much has changed since then as the team is playing much better since the second half of the season. Montreal was the 2nd highest scoring team in the league while Boston ranked 4th and each team was ranked 7th and 6th respectively in GA/G. Boston's formula of speed with Hogue-Ronning-Reichel and great huge dmen Bourque-Fetisov has paid off quite well. Depch has a had a super consistent season and manages to keep all games within reach. Boston also sports the best Away record at 22-5. Prediction: Mtl in 7 or Bos in 4 (3) Flamingpavelbure - Quebec | 5.33 GF | 3.91 GA | -300 (6) zepplin - Hartford| 5.31 GF | 3.17 GA | +300 Season Series: 3-1 QUE FPB has had a pretty incredible season considering he has started Stephane Fiset as a point. Not sure if he's going to continue doing this into the playoffs. Quebec also boasts the best PP% in the league at 39% while Hartford sits 4th at 30.3%. Zepp has had a real solid season with a balanced and very speedy attacking unit in Bure-Turgeon-Courtnall and Leetch and Wesley on D. This much agility has given many teams issues. While Quebec boasts a more rounded lineup with Jagr as a bruising, agile playmaker, Sandstrom with the best shot in the game and Zhamnov a crafty, agile, passer. Ellet and Blake round out the lineup. FPB tends to step it up in the playoffs and I think this will be a tough matchup for Zepp despite him playing so well. Prediction: Que in 7 (4) Brutus- Philadelphia|4.92 GF | 2.77 GA | -135 (5) IceStorm- Buffalo| 5.27 GF | 3.17 GA | +135 Season Series: 3-1 PHI These two teams are built totally differently, this should be very interesting. Brutus has arguably one of the toughest lineups to face. A lineup that features two of the game's biggest stars in Mario and Roy. Mario has been utterly dominant this season at 3rd in league scoring while Roy was 2nd in GAA, 6th in SV%. Ice has been playing well defensively with Moog as well 3rd in GAA, 3rd in SV%. Brutus' bruising hard hitting lineup gives opponents split seconds to make decisions and makes it difficult to get through to the net. Brutus and Ice were #2 and #3 ranked in GA/G. This should feature a nice and dirty low scoring series. Brutus is having a career year, let's see how far he can take it. Prediction Phi in 7. (1) KingRaph-New Jersey (8)TexasPachyderm-NY Islanders (Won 4-2) Well this one is done before I could say anything. Huge upset. Tex has been rolling lately and it is nice to see an 8th seed take out #1, cudos to Tex. For the PATRICK division hoping somebody in that division can help write up as I won't have the same perspective as you guys and haven't played as many games vs that side.

With the start of the playoffs I thought I would do the Blitz cup odds after years away from the game. (1) ANA - Plabax -2800 (8) FLA - Brutus +2800 Season Series: 4-0 ANA All time blitz playoffs: Never met Brutus has had a somewhat mediocre season and has had trouble scoring this season at 3.08 GFA and has really struggled on the road going 6-15. Plabax comes in with a phenomenal season winning 32/44 games, leading the league in GFA by a wide margin at 5.49 and boasts the 3rd best defense with a 3.02 GAA. Prediction: Anaheim in 5 (2) DAL - KingRaph -600 (7) WPG - Zepplin +600 Season Series: 4-0 NYR All time blitz playoffs: Never met KingRaph led the league in wins with a superb 33-11 record. Was 2nd in GFA and 4th in GAA. He is a perennial favourite in every league and this one is no different. Zepplin has struggled a bit with consistency, at times he has been very impressive at other times he has gone on prolonged bad runs such as losing 6 in a row going into the playoffs. Still he is a live dog and the potential for an upset is there. Prediction: DAL in 6 (3) CHI - Zalex -450 (6) STL - Sicarious Fulgor +450 Season Series: 3-1 CHI All time blitz playoffs: Never met Zalex and Chicago come into the playoffs as one of the hotter teams. Posting impressive home and away records and the #1 GAA at 2.83, you know the trapon will be in full effect. Sicarious comes in boasting the 5th best GAA at 3.52 and has found a way to grind out wins giving him a very respectable 21-22-1 record. He also comes in winning 7 of his final 10 games. I expect some low scoring, entertaining games here. Prediction: CHI in 6 (4) MTL - HABS -140 (5) DET - IceStorm +140 Season Series: 2-1-1 MTL All time blitz playoffs: 3-0 HABS (12-4) This is a classic Blitz match-up and the fourth time in Blitz playoff history that these two have met in the first round. Both teams know each other very well. HABS comes in with the 2nd best defensive team with a 3.01 GAA, while IceStorm has been fantastic offensively scoring at a 4.38 GFA clip good for third best in the league. Ice also comes in as one of the hotter teams going 7-2-1. A great match-up of defense vs offense in this one. Prediction: MTL in 7 Blitz Cup Odds (1) ANA - Plabax +105 (2) DAL - KingRaph +115 (3) CHI - Zalex +600 (4) MTL - HABS +700 (5) DET - IceStorm +800 (6) STL - Sicarious Fulgor +2000 (7) WPG - Zepplin +2000 (8) FLA - Brutus +7000
I understand this is Frey's winter classic and he can choose how he wants to run it np. But how would you guys want the playoffs setup? Personally I like 1-4 seeds in and 1vs4 and 2vs3 bof7 and bof7 finals This way: 1. More games for more people is always great in 2on2! Grows the game allows new people to play some very competitive games. Gets more ppl hooked! 2. Seed 1 will still get rewarded with their good play with an easier playoff matchup which they will be heavily favoured to win. While seed 4 gets a very exciting chance to pull off a huge upset. 3. Bof7 is the best validation of the best team compared to bof5.
