i always thought this was the biggest mistake... the 2011 team was built on speed and skill players, throw in a couple raffi torres and aaron romes so the other team will think twice about nailing your stars and you gotta winning team

that was the formula that got us 1 game from the cup, don't fix what ain't broken!

It's no coincidence that the team started their downward spiral once they strayed from that formula

Great picks. I thought of the same given the roll Detroit has been on. But their goaltending scares me.

I heard this season with the new format, they aren't re-seeding the match-ups after the first round.

A bit easier to predict the future round matchups, and can possibly change up your pool strategy.

It helps that Canucks aren't in it, so no "homerism" picks.
I'm going to stack all my picks on Ducks, Blackhawks, Bruins, and Penguins.

I don't like the Ducks and Pens. Both teams have questionable goaltending as of late. And Philly will beat the Pens again in the playoffs. They are definitely Fleury's kryptonite.

I really like San Jose. I think they are probably one of the healthiest teams of the west next to LA?. And just got Hertl back.

as much as I like NYR that first round series with the Flyers is going to be hell especially without Kreider and if they make it out of that to play PIT or CBJ if Fleury has his annual playoff collapse, that won't be easy either

Just being realistic

lol yep that's why I like them to go all the way.

But with the 2 healthiest teams playing each other, they're going to just beat the living crap out of each other.

Best all around series in the first round imo- great forwards, excellent D, and world-class goalies. It's too bad only 1 gets to the second round

^not even so much because they on a bad streak, its more so they lost half their team due to injury in the final 2 weeks. Sometimes playoffs is really luck and health driven. Sharks were without Hertl/Torres/Havlat for most of the year and had to ice John McCarthy, Mike Brown, Eriah Hayes I believe they have combined for 3 goals all season. Now they qualify for the playoffs and Hertl and Havlat came back near the end of the season, Torres expected to play in game 1. The only guy that is dead on the Sharks is Adam Burish who wouldn't crack the lineup when everyone is healthy anyways. Then you look at St. Louis, they could be potentially go into game 1 without Morrow(foot injury), Berglund(shoulder), Tarasenko(hand surgery), and Oshie is a question mark(possible concussion?). Backes said he is playing but he was spotted in a walking boot the other day so he probably isn't healthy either.

The City of Abbotsford will be terminating its contract with the AHL Abbotsford Heat hockey team.

The team has been a financial drain on the municipality since it relocated to Abbotsford in the 2009-2010 season after a two year stint at Moline, Illinois. The City of Abbotsford signed a ten year contract with the team to cover any shortfalls beyond its annual guaranteed revenues of $5.7 million.

However, the team has failed to break even with Abbotsford taxpayers bailing out the franchise on an annual basis ever since the inaugural year. Abbotsford provided the Heat with $450,000 in the 2000-2010 season, $1.37 million in 2010-2011, and $1.76 million in 2011-2012.

Receding game attendance has been the source of the team’s financial hardships. The average attendance last season was 3,778 fans per game at the 2007-built, $64.7 million City-owned Abbotsford Entertainment & Sports Centre. During the 2012-2013 season, average game attendance was less than 2,500, placing the team dead last in the 30 franchise league.

Attendance issues could lie with the team’s designation as a farm team of the NHL Calgary Flames, a rival team of the Vancouver Canucks, and the Fraser Valley’s relatively small and rural population to support such a business.

In addition to subsidizing the Heat’s operational costs, taxpayers are also responsible for about $2 million in annual hockey arena maintenance subsidies.
