    NHL PLayoffs 1st Round Upset Specials

    The 2012 NHL Playoffs begin tonight in dramatic fashion as each series seems to be packed full of intrigue.

    Before I get started I want to point out a couple of things first.

    First, I am a Flyers fan. Secondly, that does not enter the equation when there is money on the line so gtfo with that nonsense if that's what you're thinking.

    OK now that's cleared up, let's get started.

    Philadelphia Flyers vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

    Series Pick: Philadelphia Flyers


    Los Angeles Kings vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Series Pick: LA Kings


    New Jersey Devils vs. Florida Panthers

    Series Pick: New Jersey Devils


    Nashville Predators vs. Detroit Red Wings

    Series Pick: Detroit Red Wings


    Phoenix Coyotes vs Chicago Blackhawks

    Series Pick: Chicago Blackhawks



    San Jose Sharks vs. St. Louis Blues

    Flyers are deeper offensively, better defensively, and have the better goalie. Why, therefore, would I pick Pittsburgh? Simply because they have Crosby and Malkin?

    Flyers have dominated them this season winning 4 games out of 6.

    The playoffs are much more physical, so I don't think Crosby will get the Gretzky treatment that he got in the last few games of the regular season. I think he gets rocked within the first 3 games and gets another concussion. Without Crosby it becomes easier to stifle Malkin, and the series is yours.

    Surprising to see a thread started by a flyers fan and the first pick - flyers over the Pens. Been a while since I've seen a homer

    Are you blind?

    Did you not read the original post?

    Here's a quote:

    Pretty self-explanatory.

    For the Flyers/Pens game, I'm leaning over 5.5 goals for the game.

    Well, it's pretty obvious you don't pay attention to details.

    Philly's 3rd line winger has 28 goals. A 3rd line winger....28 goals.

    Briere is healthy and playing tonight.

    Philly has Giroux, Hartnell, Jagr, Simmonds, Read, Voracek, Couturier, Briere, Schenn, Talbot.

    That's not mentioning Wellwood who has played unbelievably since he got called up.

    Philly is much deeper offensively and will roll out 4 lines that can score to pittsburgh's 2 1/2 lines that can score.

    Philly is better defensively and has the better goalie in Bryzgalov.

    I bet if you aren't a flyers fan than this thread doens't even get created. "money on the line", in what part of the original post did you label any reasons for taking any team? You didn't mention one fact about the Flyers ML or why they are a good pick, only that you are taking them.

    You said I was being a homer, hence, my reply to you.

    Better goalie?

    Pens have 5 players with 25 + goals yet Flyers are deeper and better offensively.
    Orpik and Letang are better than anything the Flyers have on defense.

    Better coach, more experience in big games/series, Flyers don't have an advantage ANYWHERE.

    Flyers have 10 players that scored more than 12 goals. Pens have 7. Flyers are deeper offensively.

    Orpik is slower than molasses and will get exposed this series. Letang is their best offensive d-man but defensively he's just ok. Flyers have much better defensive defensemen. Grossmann and Coburn are better than anyone on the Pens defensively.

    Better coach? By who's standards? A guy that took a stacked Pens team to the Cup is better than the guy who took the Carolina Hurricanes to the Cup?

    In what universe is that a reality, because it's not this one.

    Flyers have almost every advantage one can think of.

    If you think otherwise, then explain how the Flyers took 4 out of 6 games this season.

    Ottawa 3-1, Washington 3-1, Florida 2-1-1, Phx 3-1, Blues 4-0, Flyers 4-2
    We'll compare that to what's going to happen in the playoffs then you can explain what the regular season means......

    Flyers are +2.5 (-230) for the series, everyone in Philly should be driving brand new cars after this series done.

    Eagles are even better. 10 years before I was born for there last championship. Granted Phillies have left their legacy over last 5 years. Think Sixers won one with Dr J.

    Just thought the gloating was a bit childish. Think Flyers will one the series now.

    OMG it's going to be so funny when Pittsburgh wins the series.

    When's that going to happen?

    If the Flyers win the next game, they're up 2-0 and shitsburgh will have to win the next 4 out of 5.

    That's not going to happen.
