I'm thinkin Wings vs Rags. I just think the Rags have too many proven playoff players to not get out of the East. I don't think the Pens have a good enough defence yet, the Habs aren't gritty enough, and the Flyers, well, I don't even need to explain myself there.

The other guy who is studying in Germany with me is a huge Pen fan, I told him that if it came down to it we could watch the games at my place because my internet is better. But I also told him that we couldn't be friends for the whole series.

They have Bettman's face of the NHL too, don't forget that. I'm sure that helps them alot in his book.

The league needs the Wings in the finals, no matter which team comes out of the East.

The easiest matchup for us would be Montreal, but I doubt they'll be the team to make it out.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

My opinion is: Red Wings vs Penguins.

But I don't believe there is a team in the league that can handle the Wings in a series. We have had the talent, but now we have chemistry as well. The East is soft, it has been for the past couple of seasons.
lighten up people, it's the internet!

I'm excited to see Montreal or the Rangers make. If the Wings make it, those matchups would be awesome. I don't think Pittsburg has what it takes, neither does Philly. Montreal or the Rangers have the best chances in the East. I think I'd have to quit work so I won't miss anymore games if the Wings play any one of them. Probably the only time I'll see that matchup in my lifetime. Those are also the best matchups for the NHL's stature.

Out of the East it'll likely be Pittsburgh or New York. Don't really see how either Montreal or Philly can beat them. And either of those would make for a fun final vs Detroit.

Well, Bettman calls for a sunshine team vs. a canadian team. So it'll be SJ/Dallas vs. Montreal this year.
