Re: 2011-2012 NHL discussion
Blues vs Kings: Tough series here. LA was hot late in the season, and the Blues were among the best all season [post Hitchcock hiring]. I wouldn't be shocked by either team winning, but I think its the Blues that has enough to get through. Blues in 6
Coyotes vs Predators: The wound is still raw, but the Yotes did a lot to impress in this series. Believe it or not Phoenix was better defensively as a team this season, so I'm going with them in 6.
Rangers vs. Caps: I still like the Rangers and what they are doing, but they had a tough go of it against the Sens who weren't all that impressive IMO. So that has me second guessing. I think this series could be a toss up, but I'll go out on a limb here and pick the Caps in 7.
Flyers vs. Devils: I think the Flyers might just win it all when its all done, but, still too early to tell. I think Flyers in 5 here, narrowly missing the sweep in overtime.
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Cincinnati Bengals - None
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
