If you’d like to get a head start on picks, the fancy new pop up comments are where to put it. We’ll have a big preview for the finals up before the week is over.


  1. coolman856

    Ill be the first victim here, lets go with Detroit in 6.

  2. sabresfan88

    Cool. I like the pop-up thing.

    I think one of the teams will take it in 6, but I don’t know which.

    I guess I’ll take the Pens in 6. I changed that back and forth a few times. It’s a toss-up for me.

  3. sabresfan88

    …maybe I should just go with whatever Chris picks to be safe. 😉

    Pens in 6 it is though.

  4. Erika

    pens in six, hopefully the kids show up…or all of detroit’s goalies blow a tire…

    honestly though, I think Sid is the single driving force here..kid will not lose…and his game responds fiercely to competition (be it against fans, critics, his match-up or goalies). I don’t think there is a rival to that intensity in Detroit. Ah, I sound like such a woman…aside from gushing about Sidney, I could talk about the Pens all day. The coaching staff is air-tight, Shero is on, Maffy is solid, Conks won them like, 30 games, solid d, two franchise players and Sidney’s never-say-die attitude…the team dynamic is absolutely perfect on paper.

    Not to take anything away from Detroit…they’re solid as well…but I just don’t know. I don’t think its their year.

    …plus my roommate is a Detroit fan, and she was nervous over Nashville…

    anyway, I’m looking forward to a good, competitive series…if nothing else, Sidney and the kids are good for ratings…and we need that.

  5. Jon

    Horrible misrepresentation of my picks there. I clearly stated they were strategy picks to try and gain on people. Psch. Whatever, Ryan.

    Pens in 6.

  6. Ryan


    Working like a charm…

  7. Jon


    2 straight rounds with zero points, and I’m still just two points behind Erika. I’m just sayin’.

  8. erika

    EXCUSE you.

    but I’m doing best out of the women…which is all I ask for out of life. You just happened to be a bonus…

    and for the record…unless you change your pick, we’re getting the same score difference in the end…what was that again?

    oh yeah.

    Erika: some points.
    Jon: “two points behind Erika”

    I’m just sayin.

  9. Becky

    I might be higher up if I had played more than one round…not that I would’ve done well in the first one anyway, as I proved in a different pool. The 2nd round I picked better, just not here.

    Detroit in 6.
