I'm going to speak under the assumption that we're getting in, because otherwise none of this matters anyway.

Detroit is our best *likely* match up. It's unlikely we move up far enough to draw anyone other than Detroit, Vancouver, or SJ. Detroit has a hard time outworking us. They are obviously superior offensively, but we have the better defense and goaltending. This season we've looked good against top tier teams, but we've looked the most impressive against Detroit. The travel wouldn't be too bad, so assuming we move on our team might have an advantage with rest. I'll take 'em

Besides I have a feeling, with our play off history, if we get Vancouver and lose they will win the cup. I don't think there's a team in the entire league (in the hunt) I'd rather see win the cup less than them. I think I'd even have to root for Philly over Vancouver if it comes down to it...
