Look at what happened to the Sens, Penguins, Sabres, it could happen to you also.

The question here is are the Bruins more of a favourite with Pronger in their lineup or with Bergeron? I think the former is the correct answer.

BTW, the Devils have something you don't......Marty Brodeur. Hard to bet against Marty in the PO's and this year he has actually had a break due to his injury.
Ok... AGAIN, I highly doubt Boston JUST wants to contend for 2 years.
