NHL Playoff Predictions 2011: Projecting the Entire NHL Playoff Bracket

The 2010 Stanley Cup Champions

In a time-honoured tradition, I've reviewed the 16 playoff teams, considered different scenarios and made predictions from the first round all the way through to the Stanley Cup Finals.

Why?

Well, my playoff pool of course. 

These are my predictions for each round of the 2011 NHL Playoffs. Additionally, I've highlighted key matchups in each series, as well as highlighting specific series as being the ones to watch in the early rounds, where even with a DVR there is too much hockey to handle unless you are on vacation.

It may not unfold exactly as I predict, but I'm confident of the teams I picked to come out of the Eastern and Western conferences.

Of course, if you disagree (and I'm sure many will), feel free to post your brackets in the comments.

 

*Just a reminder on the playoff format. Best of seven series in a 2-2-1-1-1 format, and after each round the remaining teams are seeded again based on their regular season standings.
