Because some asked for it but didn't actually start it, here's the thread that's number two in the playoffs, but bound to be number one in your hearts (for the next two weeks).  

No shirt, no shoes, no posting.  That means you, too, ink.

Are we allowing ink to wear shorts in here?

That someone was me. Sorry. I was shamelessly throwing my art around. And I'm going to do it again. But I'm not wearing shoes. Or a shirt, really.

Former Sabres moving onto the second round:

Jason Pominville, Matt Moulson and Cody McCormick for Minnesota.
Robyn Regehr for Los Angeles.
Danny Briere and Thomas Vanek for Montreal.
Daniel Paille for Boston.
Dominic Moore in New York.

Didn't include guys who aren't actively playing for their team or never played a game in Buffalo.
There will be at least one former Sabres in the conference finals since Montreal/Boston face each other.

Just noticed that I'm the only person in the Sabrespace bracket to pick the Kings to win the Cup. I like those odds.

Not the only one. I'm going w/ the Kings. Quick only gave up 5 goals in the last 4 games of the series. And LA managed to bury the puck a lot in the last 4 games. Quick is just too quick.

I was surprised hearing ppl bash the Philly / NYR series, I thought it was a great series.

I'm also pumped to see how NYR stacks up against cry baby Crosby.  If there's a series I could take or leave it's probably Chicago / Minn as I don't think the Wild have a prayer.  But you never know.

As for my picks I'm going:

LA
Chicago
Montreal
NYR

NYR, Montreal, LA, Chicago.

I'm not sure how confident I am in Montreal winning, but I honestly can't stomach the thought of a Rangers-Bruins series, so yea. In any event, I hope Vanek tears them a new one.

Exactly, there's no way Montreal is going to hang in there against the Bruins' cheapshots.

They're going to lose the war of attrition big time, unless the NHL grows a pair and suddenly starts suspending Bruins.

I figure if it doesn't happen against the Habs, it never will.

Thank you, and ###### the Bruins. As a Red Wings fan, I cannot tell you how much hatred I have for Satan Lucic, Marchand's twisted beak, Chara's ability to avoid any and all repercussions to his actions, and Tuuka's little elfin Ferngully face.

Every team I had amiable feelings towards has been beaten in the first round. It is now a case of "lesser of evils" for me, and a lot of drinking. Also, my playoffs bracket is a study in who NOT to pick.
