Tough to beat

San Jose is 18-0-2 in their last 20 games. Further more their only non shootout loss in that stretch was with their backup goalie.

I'd rather be the eighth seed then face them.

I picked Colorado. They just seem like a team that might be murder in the first round, but easier later on when they get banged up and come back down to Earth (especially that goalie).

There are other, better teams; but you're going to have to face Detroit sooner or later, might as well get it over with.

All of the Eastern teams have warts that just don't scare me as much. Maybe the scariest is the unheralded(?!?) Rangers, with good goaltending, depth up front, and a sleeping giant.

Being a Bruins fan, I've got to go with Montreal on this one.

I'm a Wings fan praying Chicago doesn't get in.

Regardless of how they are actually playing right now (which is scary enough), as a Nashville fan i just don't want to see San Jose for a 3rd straight year. We'd be happy to just get in given the year we've had, and a first round win would be awesome. But anything...anything but facing the Sharks *again*

Let's see: Best player in the World?check. Hot goalie? check. Do the names Lemieux and Barrasso ring a bell?? That's what Ovechkin and Huet look like right now.

The Capitals are coming on like a bull dozer. They will hurt someone. IF they get to the Big Dance.

I hear what you're saying about the Caps, but it's the same thing that a lot of people said about Pittsburgh last season. I just don't see it happening against a deeper, more playoff savvy oponent. That said, how much would the league (and the fans for that matter) love to see an Ovechkin vs. Crosby/Malkin matchup in the first round?
