We love Maggie the Monkey around here. Even though she picked the Oilers to win the Cup last year, she has done an overall excellent job picking the NHL playoffs. She basically proves what we all know: that a monkey spinning a wheel could do just as well as an expert in picking games and series. We actually have no problem with the TSN folks so it’s too bad a monkey consistently beats them out. We wish Maggie would pick NFL games too because we are convinced that she would beat Merrill Hoge easily.
Well, without further ado, here are Maggie’s picks for the 2007 NHL playoffs:
Detroit vs Calgary: Detroit
Anaheim vs Minnesota: Minnesota
Vancouver vs Dallas: Vancouver
Nashville vs San Jose: Nashville
Buffalo vs NY Islanders: Buffalo
New Jersey vs Tampa Bay: New Jersey
Atlanta vs NY Rangers: Atlanta
Ottawa vs Pittsburgh: Pittsburgh
The Minnesota over Anaheim and Thrashers over Rangers isn’t looking very good right now but keep the faith, Maggie gets stronger as the playoffs go on. And the playoff beard is impressive.
