If you couldn't pick Detroit to win the cup, who would be your choice of who will do the best this post season?

My choice: NJ Devils

They've got an amazing setup this year, and I think largely have been sort of a quiet winner. This could largely be blamed on marty's injury since they are just now getting to his records (and they will be his). I think they are on pace to be the competiton from the east this year, with Marty firing on all cylinders.

I'm drunk, so we'll just take it as coincidence that I post this on this night.

Well sense we are pretending

WCF: CHI vs DAL
ECF: NJD vs WSH

SCF: CHI vs NJD

CUP CHAMPS: NJD (IF the wings end up getting knocked out of the playoffs, would love to see Brody add a cup to his collection. It be nice to add to the fact he will be breaking ROY's record this year.)




But on the real I would love to see an all original six final four!(conference) That would be sweet. Plus I think a DET vs CHI WCF would draw good ratings cuz of their rivalry

If devils win this year they will almost be as much of a "dynasty" as the red wings with cup wins in 1995, 2000, 2003 and possibly 2009, wings 1997, 1998, 2002, 2008...

This is not who I would want to see win if the Wings are knocked out, but I think Calgary can make a decent run. I know they got rocked last night but there are not many games where a team will score six goals and lose. I think Darryl Sutter looks like a genius for the Jokinen trade. I could also deal with San Jose or Boston winning (they both have Newfoundlanders, come to think of it, so does Calgary). So one of those three teams.

Although, Boston has had good luck with championships in this decade, maybe a little too good. Boston sports fans would be completely insufferable if the Bruins won this year.

Calgary has barely won a game since the Jokinen trade.. The pumpkin-head himself has been good but the way the team has been playing almost makes me think the rumors of Jokinen being a lockerroom-cancer are true. And with Kipprusoff playing the way he is, I think one of the teams they'll likely face in the 1st round, the Blue Jackets or the Canucks, could knock them out in the 1st round.

I'm still thinking San Jose-Detroit for the WCF. That would be a very tough series, probably decided in 7 games.
From the East, I think the Bruins or the Devils will make it to the SCF and win against a tired, battered and bruised Western Conference team.

Hate to say it, but I think the Sharks finally have all the pieces this year to put together a real solid run. If the Wings don't win it, I believe the Sharks will take home Lord Stanley this year.

Calgary has had defense problems all year long (sound familiar???). They weren't playing well defensively before Jokinen arrived, and with Iginla in that room I find it incredibly hard to believe that Jokinen has much sway in there.

But missing the playoffs a few times eliminates them from any talk.

If it can't be us, I'd like to see Boston take it. I like Milan Lucic enough that I could cheer for them if we don't make it.

Of course, we are going to be the team to beat. San Jose will be sitting on the sidelines - again.

In my dreams, it would be the Rangers pulling a massive upset. With Avery leading the way.

Realistically, the Sharks. Not much would be sweeter than seeing Cheechoo raise the Cup, and he is the only reason I like the Sharks.

I refuse to pick a team like SJ, Chicago, or Calgary to win the Cup. The Wings surpass every 'what if or hypothetical thread on LGW to hoist the Cup yet again. To beat the NJ Devils.

Osgood gets on a roll, the ever present stick of Lidstrom turns it up, and Datsyuk bounces one off of Langenbrunners chin for the winning goal!

Is this who we WANT to win rather than Detroit, or who we THINK will win?

If its the prior, I am suprised to see so many picks for the Devil's. Those guys bore the other teams to death en route to their cup wins. I have no hatred towards them or anything, but if I can't see the Wings win, I want a NEW team to win.
When you lose, say little. When you win, say less.
