When do you not play devil's advocate?
Sure, the Pens could win this series on the strength of monstrous team defense. But as "experts," these people should be focusing on the here and the now, the facts -- not what could happen should God himself decide to intervene.
The Wings' blue line is infinitely better than that of the Pens, as is their team D. They proved this last night and will continue to prove it en route to another Cup. Making a favorable comparison between the teams' respective defensive systems is a big stretch. Saying the Pens are a flat-out better defensive team is absolutely ludicrous.
While Burnside I disagree with as well saying the Penguins defense is better, it's not like their defense is bad. And I like playing devil's advocate when it comes to the "ANALYST STOOPID WHEN YOU DON'T COMPLETELY PICK WINGS" opinion on here that many people display, as well as when people make it sound like the Wings either are (1) indestructible or (2) done after the 1st round or 1 loss.
And saying that the Wings have already won another Cup when they still have to win 3 games and it's a best-of-7 series after just 1 game can be pretty ludicrous as well. Don't count your chickens before they hatch.
