Second Round Picks
As you may have noticed, there has been an almost complete lack of activity on Black Aces for the past month. We will be back with full Senators coverage whenever there is anything important to talk about but for now, after two years of almost daily blogging, I’m simply enjoying the playoffs and recharging my batteries. Right around the draft, Black Aces will be in full swing again or if anything big happens in the Senators world.
But first we need to get some predictions in. With our usual guest from Blood Red Army, here’s how we see the second round unfolding.
Boston vs. Carolina
Black Aces: Boston
Blood Red Army: Carolina
Washington vs. Pittsburgh
Black Aces: Pittsburgh
Blood Red Army: Washington
Detroit vs. Anaheim
Black Aces: Detroit
Blood Red Army: Detroit
Vancouver vs. Chicago
Black Aces: Chicago
Blood Red Army: Chicago
What was the best series of the first round?
Black Aces: Washington vs. New York
Blood Red Army: Chicago vs. Calgary
Who was the MVP of the first round?
Black Aces: Evgeni Malkin - Pittsburgh
Blood Red Army: Jonas Hiller - Anaheim
Which star player performed the worst in the first round?
Black Aces: Daniel Briere – Philadelphia
Blood Red Army: Evgeni Nabokov – San Jose (although there were many others)
Biggest moron of the first round? John Tortorella, Sean Avery, Donald Brashear, Daniel Carcillo or Montreal fans?
Black Aces: John Tortorella (He should be embarrassed by both his interactions with the fans and the media. Much like Ron Wilson, he thinks he invented hockey. Yet I’m glad he’s around for entertainment purposes.)
Blood Red Army: Montreal fans (Biggest morons in the WORLD)
Which first round team is most likely to blow up their roster for next season?
Black Aces: Montreal (duh)
Blood Red Army: Montreal
Our first round predictions can be seen here.
The score was:
Black Aces: 5
Blood Red Army: 4
Oooh so close. Sorry B.R.A. (yes that acronym spells BRA ... loser)
Although I picked Montreal to beat Boston. Brutal.
