We were the only series that went to less than 6 games in the first round last year.

Both ECF Semis went 7 games, and the West went 5 and 6 games.

Year before that, the Bruins swept the 1st round (lost in the 2nd)... you had two 7 game series, and a 6 game series. Both ECF semis went 7 games.

So on, and so forth... this team is beatable, I think you're grossly overconfident here in dismissing potential opponents and the various risks they pose... even in the early rounds. As of right now, a quite likely 2nd round opponent would be TB, who has caused all kinds of problems for us.
