Who are these so called “experts” that know so much about hockey that they can honestly predict who is going to win this series? ESPN, NBC, CBC, Jeremy Roenick or Eddie Olczyk? These guys may know how to play hockey (in some instances) better than me, but they couldn’t predict a fart after a late night run to Taco Bell™.

Wow! You’re on a roll already.
The truth is we don’t know who will win this series, but as fans we know our team better than some joke in a flower print suit. You can base this series on stats, or how the team played in March, but that really doesn’t tell you anything.
Here is my take.
1.) This isn’t the regular season. None of that crap matters. We know that guys like Franzen, Zetterberg and Helm can take this game to a whole different level that Nashville probably doesn’t even know exists.
2.) When Detroit is “on” and “healthy” they can destroy their opponets in every way possible.
3.) Rinne is over-hyped, just like Bryzgalov was. Once Babs and his staff figure out his weakness he will be reduced to nothing.
4.) Our offense and defense have more skill and depth.
5.) Nashville may have a better PP, but that means nothing once the playoffs start. Detroit doesn’t goon it up, and the refs are more apt to let teams play 5-on-5.
6.) Hulktuzzi was born at a Nashville game.
7.) We have Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Franzen, Helm, Lidstrom, Kronwall and Nashville doesn’t.
I “predict” that Detroit will win this series in 4, 5, 6 or 7 games. I may be wrong, but I know one thing for sure. I’ll be sitting there watching every single second curled up in a little ball of stress, fear, pain and joy just like the rest of you.
