O\'Callahan: Prognostication Review

Hindsight is 20/20, but here’s a look at how some of the “experts” out there predicted that the series between the Ducks and Stars would go.


Seamus O'Callahan
Kudos to:

Razor: Stars in 7

Tracey Myers, Ft. Worth Star-Telegram: Stars in 7

Sean McCormick, Sportsnet: Stars in 7 “It's time for Marty Turco to win a playoff series on his own. He's too good not to, and the Ducks are ripe for the picking.”

David Amber, ESPN: Stars in 7

Scott Burnside: Stars in 7

Keith Jones, VERSUS: Stars

Ron MacLean, Hockey Night in Canada: Stars


Eating Some Crow:

Tim Cowlishaw, Dallas Morning News: Ducks in 5 “Too much Chris Pronger and Scott Niedermayer makes the defending champs too tough.”

Jean-Jacques Taylor: Ducks in 6 “Dave Tippett refuses to turn the Stars loose.”

Kevin Sherrington, Dallas Morning News: Ducks in 6 “Chris Pronger returns just in time to maul the Stars’ revitalized hopes.”

Mike Heika, Dallas Morning News: Ducks in 6 “Low scoring means overtime, and nobody is better in playoff overtime than Anaheim goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere.”

Chuck Carlton, Dallas Morning News: Ducks in 7 “The Stars are due for a first round win. But since defenseman Scott Niedermayer’s return, the Ducks are 32-12-4.”

Pierre LeBrun, Canadian Press: Ducks in 7

John Buccigross, ESPN: Ducks in 7

Linda Cohn, ESPN: Ducks in 7

E.J. Hradek, ESPN: Ducks in 7

Barry Melrose, ESPN: Ducks in 6

Bob McKenzie, TSN: Ducks
