Disagree, want to flame me?

Well, go for it.

Also, PS, I'm appearing on the Up the Pucks! podcast with Brandon and Peter next week, on the podcast, I will justify my picks.


  1. Avs in cup finals? I like it, what makes you think they'll make a magical cup run?

  2. Good God. Your predictions stink more than the Flyers goaltending. Leafs all the way! Yeah right lol.

  3. sens in last place?? hahahahahhahahahahhahaha....wait....hahahahhahahhaha....wait I think there's more....bahahahhaha!!

    I 100% agree...your predictions do stink! Care to back it up with some explanation or you just shooting out of the collective asses of leafs trolls? oh wait, of course you are!

  4. I do have a logic behind this: Wait for the Podcsat for it. I'll link it up after it airs. But there is a purpose to how I made these picks.

  5. Wow gotta agree with the other guys. The Ottawa leafs predictions are horrible. Sens are a top 6 team in the east. And leafs fans aren't even predicting them to make the playoffs. But with bozak they must. Pretty solid THIRD line center....... Oh right a well maybe first line.
