If the Senators can’t beat the New York Islanders, what hope do they have against the Canucks? Vancouver has blazing fast forwards, a strong defence corps and an all-world goaltender. They have no real weaknesses and are the runaway Stanley Cup favourite. They’d be a handful for any team, let alone one struggling as mightily as the Senators are.
Record: 31-22

Let’s see, the Sens lose to one of the NHL’s worst, then fly across the continent to face one of the NHL’s best. Think I’ll go with the home team, unless someone can assure me they were out partying all night after the Super Bowl. In fact, even then…

Even though Vancouver might have a letdown after an emotional win over Chicago on Friday, I still expect them to have enough in the tank to beat the Senators.

After failing so miserably last year at this prediction thing, I’m pretty ecstatic to be well above .500 this season. so, I figure if I just keep picking the Sens to lose, I have a real good chance of staying on the plus side. And I think the Canucks are a fairly safe bet.

I don’t see how the Senators could win this game at the best of times, but with the travel and stuff involved, it makes it even less likely.

Yikes. This isn’t going to be Ali vs. Frazier. More like Ali vs. Gary Coleman. Guess which team is Gary Coleman?
