Who's you money on to be in the final?
I'm going with PITvNAS as I just don't think CHI or LAK really want it this year...
Pit is nowhere near as good as they like to boast, their goaltending is still all over the goddamn place and they're getting shown up by their competitors in their division (The Capitals 3-0, The Islanders 6-3, The Rangers 5-2) and they've dropped a double digit lead they had point standings over everyone but the Islanders. Speaking of, I could see the Islanders playing the ducks in the final. As much as I like the Predators, there's little experience to be had in the offseason there and as fast and fun as they are (Caps made a 3 goal come back baby, though goddamn Niskanen choked it up) I don't think they'll last to the final. But then, Bruce Boudreau and playoffs, HAH.
I'd love to see the Capitals make the finals and they definitely have the talent and drive right now, easily pulled in the best December in the league but I'll never let myself get my hopes up.
Lightning are pretty great in the East.
