What a joke. I mean, the Leafs more likely than the Oil or the Coyotes?

Twenty on Jokinen, Mueller, Doan, Jovanovski, and Bryzgalov.

I do like that we aren't last at least.

Mortimer Peacock said...

Yeah, I liked that too.

But seriously folks, let's think about the Coyotes:

You got several players that are in their absolute prime as we speak- Jokinen, Doan, JoVo, Bryzgalov, Reinprecht.

Then you got these exciting youth players- Mueller and Turris and Milan Michalek's brother.

It seems like the right combination of youth and experience, kind of like the Carolina Hurricanes in 06 or whenever.

daaaaaamn. 60/1 eh. I LIKE THOSE ODDS. :D someone loan me a hunny, posthaste!

FrenchCatalogues said...

I just don't think the Coyotes could out do the Wild. I mean Backstrom, Gaborik, Koivu, Brunette, Nolan, Johnsson, and the young kid Pouliot. It's just a better situation maybe. I think the fact they have Backstrom puts them ahead. He's pretty damn awesome

FrenchCatalogues said...

Oh and Pierre-Marc Bouchard. Pretty awesome as well.

I predict the Red Wings and the Stars kill one another early on in the playoffs leaving only six teams. Then the Sharks will blow it again and it'll be the Coyotes playing either the Bruins or the Flyers in the Stanley Cup. Mark my words.
