The Wings are going to the Cup Finals this year, and they will most likely win.
-San Jose always chokes. They just lost vs the Kings and have to go to LA for game 6. In the second round, they will be worn out, and easy prey.
-Vancouver always chokes. I admit that when the Canucks were up 3-0 the Hawks, I thought this might be their year. However, the Canucks got blown out the last 2 games and have to face the Hawks back in Chicago. It's likely going 7 games, and even if Vancouver wins, Luongo will be too exhausted for the Wings offense if they meet in the playoffs.
-Nashville will be worn out vs Anaheim. Plus the Preds have never won a series, and are inexperienced in the post season. I predict the series will go 7 games, and if Anaheim wins, they will be no match for the Wings.
In the east, Washington has a history of choking, as Ovechkin isn't known for his playoff heroics. Buffalo will beat the Flyers, but Miller can't carry them all the way. The Penguins won't do anything unless Crosby returns.
The only team that can challenge Detroit are the Bruins, but the Wings would likely prevail in that series.
So I am predicting a Stanley Cup Victory for Detroit in 2011.
