Ok here goes

1. Ottawa-I like the Penguins but Ottawa is much more consistent

2. Pittsburgh-Just going to beat out New Jersey, but to inconsistent to be top seed.

3. Carolina- Weak division

4. New Jersey- loses out on division title, but still a Stanley cup contender.

5. Montreal-Loses 4th to New Jersey one of the last games of the season. Not doing as well since all star break.

6. Buffalo- not doing as well but will turn it around- better offense. If no offense, won't get past first round.

7. Boston-Playing better, more constant wins, then they will get past first round.

8. Race between Islanders and Rangers- It will be close but Rangers get through.

First Round Ottawa V.S Rangers=Ottawa in 5 games

  Pittsburgh V.S Boston= Pittsburgh in 5 games

  Carolina V.S Buffalo=Buffalo in 7 games, they will be carrying momentum.

  New Jersey V.S Montreal= The Best Series=Montreal in 7 games-very close.

Second Round

  Ottawa V.S Buffalo= Upset Special-Buffalo in 6 games. Momentum

  Pittsburgh V.S Montreal= In the begining of the year penguins kept losing to the Canadians and towards the end they started to figure out Montreal- So Pittsburgh Prevails in 7 games.

Conference Championship-

  Pittsburgh V.S. Buffalo- With Sid the Kid Healthy and Malkin and trade additions= The end to the Fairy tale story Penguins are going to the Stanley Cup for first time since 1992.

  Conference Campion=

  The Pittsburgh Penguins

Western Conference - Coming Soon

Eastern Conference Playoff Predictions

Being a Ducks fan , I can hardly say I follow the East as much as the West , But Ottawa and the Pens have been slipping away lately and Carolina hasn't looked their best either. NJ and Buffalo haven't caught my eye . Montreal has been good lately. I really couldn't say as far as the East goes , but I'm sure once things sort out, it will be a great push into the playoffs !! Either way when they meet the Ducks in the Finals it will be the Ducks in 5.

Eastern Conference Playoff Predictions

Well after watching the Penguins lose 5-1 to Boston, a lot of these seedings are definitely changing. I will update the standings on Sunday, while I am setting next weeks fantasy hockey line up.
