I think Smith's always had the talent. Does my memory fail me or was he not one of the centerpieces of the Brad Richards trade? Dave Tippett and Sean Burke's guidance in Phoenix just helped him put it all together.

ROUND 2 - A game or 2 in - Review again

EASTERN CONF.

#1 New York Rangers vs. #7 Wash. Capitals (currently 1-1)

NYR- seem very "systematic" and stick to the game-plan.
WASH- seem to fly by the seat of their pants.

Conclusion for now.......NYR - 6

#5 Phi. Flyers vs. #6 New Jersey Devils (currently 1-0 Phi.)

Phi - Playing very fast, good hockey.
NJD - playing good but seem to be relying on Marty too much.

Conclusion for now...... Philly skates past the Devils in 5


WESTERN CONF.

#2 St. Louis Blues vs. #8 L.A. Kings (currently 2-0 LAK)

StL - Need to find thier stride again like round 1
LAK - making opponents play "king hockey" instead of their own

Conclusion for now....Nobody is beating Quick - LAK in 6

#3 Phoenix Coyotes vs. #4 Nashville Predators (currently 2-0 Phx)

Phx - Just playing good, no other way to put it.
Nsh - game 2 was bad - need to get back to what got them here.


Conclusion - Right now, it really looks like the Flyers and Kings will meet for the cup. Both are just playing above and beyond themselves and everybody else. But we all know, everything and anything can and will happen.

I think the Caps will push it to Game 7. Our offense is alot of fly by the seat of our pants, but the defense isnt too bad.

I think Philly wins in 6

I'm going Kings in 5. Its disappointing because for some reason I am rooting for the Blues, but the Kings are a cool underdog story

Phoenix wins in 6



I have to keep with my prediction that the Washington Capitals will be in the Stanley Cup until we are officially out. Hockey is the one sport where I am a total homer, because anything can happen in hockey more than any other sport

Wouldn't know who to pick between the Yotes and Kings in the West Final.


Man that's a grudge match.

Meanwhile I think neither would be favored.


In the case that it's Rangers vs. Devils in the East, I can see the Devils surprising.

Man, I hope you're right but we gotta get by the Flyers first. Flyers fans will tell you, no lead is safe. Wink Yes, I'm hinting to our 3-1 series comeback in the 2000 Eastern Conference Finals on the way to our 2nd Stanley Cup. Cool
