5-hole.com Pick ‘em – Marc sucks – 12/18/08
No, Mats Sundin hasn’t decided yet. About 10 minutes after this was posted, Sundin announced he will be going to the Canucks… more later
Boston over Toronto – I’m contractually obligated to pick the Bruins every time they play. If I don’t multiple people will break my kneecaps.
Caps over St. Louis – It’s OV time!
Carolina over Florida – Craig Anderson>Tomas Vokoun. Vokoun is starting.
Pittsburgh over Atlanta – C’mon… *gimmie*
Philly over Habs – Halak starting. I don’t care if it’s in Montreal.
Colorado over TB – Mike Smith should still be in Dallas. Oh well.
SJ over Detroit – Fantasy hockey driven choice. Go Nabby!
CBJ over Stars – Another fantasy pick. Pascal Leclaire rocks!
Preds over Coyotes – Ellis is on a hot streak right now.
I need to redeem myself… here are some high quality picks. I guarantee 7 out of 9 tonight or your money back.
Boston over Toronto – The curse of the Sundino will not stop until he signs with the Rangers.
Caps over St. Louis – Chris Mason you’re terrrrrible. Just like Man-well… (inside joke) *gimmie*
Carolina over Florida – Is it a bad sign if most observers think the backup goalie is better? What about if the starter is making $5.5 million? I’m looking at you Vokoun.
Pittsburgh over Atlanta – Pittsburgh is not Ottawa. Their forwards will actually shoot the puck and they backcheck.
Montreal over Phi – Can’t they both lose?
TB over Col – Raycroft is a chump.
Detroit over SJ – Both of these teams seem to be coming back to earth recently, but they both still kick ass. I’m taking the Wings at home though.
Dallas over CBJ – I can’t believe I’m actually picking Turco and the Stars, but the BJ’s are terrible on the road. Hehe.
Pho over Nsh – I wish Rick Nash played for Nashville, don’t you?
Rory is fairly busy tonight so she has no thoughts or gimmie.
