NHL playoffs here

This post may seem out of place among the ranting and ravings about LSU football, the madness of Arkansas athletics and UFC reports, but the NHL playoffs begin this week.

Believe it or not, the Stanley Cup has a great chance of ending up in Anaheim. The Ducks are the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference, and I don't think the Detroit Red Wings will get to the Finals despite being the No. 1 seed.

From the East, I like Buffalo, the top seed. The Sabres supposedly have an affiliation with the Mudbugs, but there's never been a Mudbug to make the jump to the NHL. Not much of an affiliation then, is it?

I'd like to see Buffalo win it. The Sabres and the town would have more of an appreciation for the Stanley Cup than Anaheim would. Don't get me wrong the Ducks would appreciate the Stanley Cup, but the folks in Anaheim wouldn't care if the Stanley Cup got a parade. The folks in Buffalo would go absolutely nuts if the Sabres won. They've deserved a championship for having to live through the Bills' drought in Super Bowls, and the Sabres losing to Dallas in the Cup Finals a few years ago.
