    Ducks are 11-1-1 in their last 13. I'm optimistic they can make a deep run through the relatively weaker half of the western conference.

    Just don't give them a game 7 at home

    The refs and the league will conspire against them to prevent any type of run.

    I got tickets at face that I'd love to flip for a profit, so please do.

    Did not see this thread started .... reposting from the other NHL thread:

    My first-round picks:
    Caps over Jackets in 6
    Penguins over Flyers in 6
    Bruins over Leafs in 7
    Lightning over Devils in 5

    Preds over Avs in 5
    Kings over Knights in 7
    Sharks over Ducks in 6
    Jets over Wild in 6 (EDIT: Dumb me forgot about the Suter injury)

    Also, went back and looked at the Thanksgiving standings, because folks love to say if you're out of playoff position at Thanksgiving, historically, it's an indicator of being in trouble as far as making the playoffs go.

    On Thanksgiving '17:
    WCs - PIT, WSH
    Failed to make it: DET, NYI
    Teams outside of position to make it: BOS, PHI

    WCs - VAN, SJ
    Failed to make it: STL, CAL, VAN
    Teams outside of playoff position to make it: ANA, COL, MIN

    So 6 of 8 in the East, 5 of 8 in the West.

    Van didn't make it either. Add Minnesota.
