This series is a complete mystery, but it will be a mad battle to the end. I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i think varlamov has proven to better so far in the first round he has 2 shut outs and has made big saves the pens bailed fluery out in game seven then fleury stepped it up but i also think it goes to the fact thet fleury is not lundqvist and the caps wont be frustrated and should be able to score easier

On the other side HH...the Rangers have a 'popgun offense' and no PP...

The Penguins have two of the top three scorers in the NHL.

Care to revise that prediction...?

no i think the caps will take the pens varlamov isnt perfect but he hasnt let in lot of bad goals and the caps offense wont be struggling as bad as agains lundy and if AO and green can get cooking i think they are solid enough to win the series. yes the ones have good offense as well but i really think the offensive roof is about to explode from the caps.

HA! All 7-game series... I think if DTR had his way... all series would go 7 games.

More hockey = a good thing.

My friend Shabbs...you are right...more 7 game series...more excitement...more great hockey for US.

HH, good points but don't forget the Caps have one of the weaker d-corps in the league to start with...20th overall in the NHL.

Crosby, Malkin, Staal, Kunitz, Guerin, Gonchar and many others can all find the back of the net...not like the Rangers.

Shrug Shrug Shrug

yea they may have a weaker D but i expect green to step up a lot from last series and during the season they out scored the pens 18-12 they usually seem to have the number of the pens either way i think a great series and it doesnt make a large difference to me except i dont like crosby...i cant say what it is but a feeling that the caps have more than the pens do to win this series

i guess not but the main thin is that they have solid goaltending even if varlamov isnt amazing he can atleast give the caps a chance where in the first game against the rangers theo did very little

In all honesty, I don't think that Fleury is all that he was expected to be, at least not yet (he may turn out to be one day...but then so may Price...), so Varlamov may be almost enough to shift the balance of power in Washington's favour. Certainly, I can't see the Caps having a whole lot of confidence in Theodore at this point.

I think that the Caps-Pens series is really going to come down to their defense - both teams have awesome firepower up front when they get going, but the series winner will be the one that can muster the most output from the blue-line, without giving up too much the other way.

Logic says Pittsburgh, although I'd love to see Washington win (it would eliminate the whiner, and piss off Cherry, all at the same time).

I hope Prager and Hemlock got my picks right. Last time I looked at the spread sheet it looked like the info in my column was wrong.

Anyway, hockey predictions are just for entertainment purposes as far as I'm concerned.
