well so far this dual system is working... Irbe has just lost his confidence is all.. I think it also shows how much confidence Maurice has in Weekes to put him in this kind of a situation....

Nope -- me takin' 'Jersey tomorrow, taking it to a Game 7. If they lose, it should be a close 1 goal game 'cuz I don't see the defending Eastern Champs going down that easy.

Hmmmmmmm..... I'll close the poll for the next round once the series starts

but remember, I SAID ON THE FIRST OR SECOND PAGE OF THIS THREAD -- I asked WHO voted for the Canes to say so NOW, and not when/if they beat the Devils. Only 1 person spoke up I believe, so I don't wanna be hearing "I said so" from all of you should the Canes win 1 of the next 2 games!

Well, I'm shocked, but it was just as I said mid-way through this series -- the Devils ran out of gas. The energy level wasn't there and perhaps going to the Conference Finals 3 straight years and going to the Finals 2 straight years -- 6 games over Dallas and 7 games versus Colorado -- was just too much.

'Canes win. I bet Maurice will stick with Weekes to keep making himself look like a genius, but we'll see how long that lasts.

SO, we got 3Carolina and 7Ottawa into the next round. If the Leafs and Canadiens win their next game or one out of the next two, it will be Carolina versus Montreal and Toronto versus Ottawa. WOW -- those would be two GREAT series!! -- weekesVStheodore and josephVSlalime. . . . but I shouldn't get too ahead of myself yet -- TOR & MON haven't sealed the deal just yet!

I said id give Carolina some R-E-S-P-E-C-T when they beat the Devils, and a great series it truely was for them beating the Devils by the same score that they gotten by last year. Good win, but whether its Toronto or the Islanders that they're gonna face next round, both of these teams can score (although both are severely decrepit). Still, it looks like Carolina is in the right place at the right time: they're a 100% and they could very well play themselves to a win against either team next round.
