    Maybe wishful thinking on my part

    I see this being a very close series. The Islanders' strength this year has been team defense under Barry Trotz. He has been a master this year turning that team around. They will keep the games close and win a few games as a result, but ultimately the Penguins run isn't over yet with the guys they have on that roster. Pens in 7.

    Isles in 6. Their team D is too much for Pitt.

    I've got the Isles too. Can't believe I'm saying this, but Trotzer's got them playing extremely solid and there's something off about the Pens.
    Plus home ice could be big with this being the final series at the Nassau.

    Practically killed me to see Trotz go to the Isles, because I developed a real liking for him while he was in DC. The Caps screwed him but good and I would love to see him swoop back into town and beat them - although highly unlikely.

    Pens in 6. Pens have the playoff experience. Isles havent been able to score and their special teams have been terrible.

    I was a NYR fan in Nassau and one of the older guys in the crew and my Ranger fan Dad had me already into hockey before the Isles came to town. Most of my friends got into hockey with the Islanders so you know how that went.... Most of you guys are prob the same. That said with the Rags out I gotta root for the other NY team. And for the NASSAU VETERANS MEMORIAL Coliseum. I saw more hockey games there anyway.

    Funny story...wife went to garage here in Southern California a while ago. Said manager is a nice guy if I ever need work I should go. I do all my own work but when the Vette needed a new harmonic balancer I gave in. As I'm sitting across his desk I'm looking at his biz card, Jeff Nystrom. Of course I'm thinking to myself "Nah, couldn't be? All the way in CA??". I didn't say anything. When I went to pick the car up he shows me pics from "back east" of his new granddaughter. I say "beautiful little girl but fuck that Islander bib, she should be wearing a Rangers logo". Jeff says "I'm sure my Uncle Bobby wouldn't like that very much.... Yup Bobby Nystrom is Jeff's uncle. and Jeff says "I was 101st Airborne and at his age I STILL would not want to fight that tough old bastard"

    Two teams that I hate, and on top of that they have that annoying women's hockey chick on there.

    Kendall Coyne Schofield? I enjoy her. I'd rather listen to her than fuckin' Milbury & crew.

    I chose PIT in my bracket simply because of Crosby and Malkin and the whole playoff experience, but I’m hardcore rooting for the Piles.

    Penguins have a large compliment of elite players, but they have a stale feeling about them (starting with getting shutout twice in a row to end the Tampa series last year). I thought there was an outside chance they would miss the playoffs this year. There's a very good chance they will lose this series. The only thing is that they are playing an erratic team that looks great for 2-3 games and then mails in a couple of real clunkers.

    So who thought that CBJ would go up 2-0...
    And then later that night, the Isles would have a shot to go up 2-0 in the series as well.
    ~8 will tell us what's up.
