Your boys don’t play until Saturday in Buffalo, as youse know. But tonight is the first night of the 2010-11 season. Versus has a pretty good double-header, Philly at Pittsburgh followed by Chicago at Colorado.
I’m gonna do my picks today. I was going to go to practice, but John Tortorella gave his boys the day off. Just my luck. So I’ll go tomorrow. I also believe I’ll be covering Games 2 and 3, despite my life mission to never, ever, ever step foot in Nassau Coliseum again. Oh, well. I made it over eight years without going there.
Until then, I’d be interested to see what you guys are predicting, so put ’em up today.
Here are mine:
6. YOUR NEW YORK RANGERS
9. Tampa Bay
1. San Jose
5. St. Louis
6. Los Angeles
Leastern final: Penguins over Capitals.
Bestern final: Sharks over Red Wings.
Stanley Cup final: Penguins over Sharks.
I was reading Sports Illustrated’s preview. For the Atlantic Division “Hot Seat” they chose Glen Sather. HELLO!? Are you guys even remotely familiar with what’s going on here?
Two days until the Opener.
