Postby GordonH » Apr 9th, 2017, 8:23 pm

NHL playoff time again, so pick which ever team want to go on to round 2

Feel free to post your reasoning behind your picks, or not.

Since I'm sure when it actual starts you will have 6 days to make those picks

Good luck & have fun with this

Round 1 you get 8 picks

I went with the Canadian clubs, just because I am Canadian. As for the others I just flipped a coin

Toronto (Washington may very well win, hey I am Canadian)
Montreal (this could be 7 gamer first round)
Pittsburgh (injuries are factor, but coin went to Pens)
Ottawa (Ottawa has good chance to move to second round)
Chicago (coin again)
Calgary (I am Canadian)
Minnesota (they have had pretty good year)
Edmonton (Connor McDavid what more needs to be said)

I have watched maybe 1 game all season

Main reason I chose Toronto over Washington is the Caps have long history of choking.

To be honest, I picked both. I win either way.

So will Toronto be just a small bump in the road for Washington, or will Washington's history of choking happen again.
