Burns vs McDavid should be a good matchup. If the Sharks get Thornton and Couture back, I give them the edge based on depth and playoff experience.

Sadly, Oilers in 6. The Sharks were already wavering before they lost Couture and Thornton.

T-Mac's coaching strategy of playing MacDavid for more then a third of each game backfires in a physical series where the Sharks will lean on him, jam him into the corner and make him fight for space.

The holyDiver runs out of gas in game 4 and the Oilers collapse.

Haha, were these supposed to be in green? I'm sorry, my cyber sarcasm detector is broken.

The Sharks will not have their top two centers 100% and they really do look like a team taking on water. The Oilers got the best draw in the conference here. I know some Flames fans are having a difficult time accepting that the Oilers are a good hockey club but you don't get 103 points in a season based on fluke or lucky bounces. I'm simply picking the team I think is better in the series not the team I hope loses.

All I care is the Greasers didn't win the division banner. I don't think the Sharks are going to put much of a fight in this first round though.

Hopefully the officials stop with the McDoofus love now that its playoffs. If they call it fairly and Coutour/Thornton are back, I like the Sharks for sure in 6.

If the Sharks magically get healthy, they win this series in 6. Edmonton is playing well but it is all Mcdavid. I do not think they are that good yet.

Aren't they 13-2 in their last 15 or so? I don't think what he's saying is that big of a stretch.

But, playoffs? I don't even know how this works. In 2006 I was lame and watched all the games by myself at my parents house as I still lived there. Now I'm getting to he old balls and am glad for the 8:00 and 8:30 starts because I'll be able to watch the games in peace and quiet from my own living after my family has gone to bed.

Sharks are too injured and tired to beat anyone, Anaheim should have laid down against the Kings to get that 1st round bye.

Only want the Oil to win this series if the Flames win theirs. No BOA then the Oil can be chum in the shark tank for all I care.
