2014 NHL Playoff Pick 'em: Short Island Smurfs vs. Philadelphia Fl-whatevers

You both can go to hell. - Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sport

No good can come of this.

Continuing our annual polls for each playoff series, we come to a matchup between Beelzebub and the Princes of Darkness.

For a New York Islanders fan, there is no winner here without carnage, ruin, and tears among the fans of our hated rivals.

But you can still look at it from an objective way too (really, you can try), and let us know what you think. Personally, I don't think the Flyers have a chance, though I'll be hoping for good things for ex-Isles Mark Streit and Andrew MacDonald (even though I thought it was the right move to cut bait with both, and I look forward to their aging expensive years in Philly).

What They're Saying

The less, the better. This series will get plenty of exposure and hyperbole on its own.
