The big questions in my mind are:

1) Will Niemi play well. If yes, we'll win, if no, we'll lose. Simple as that.

2) Will Boyle play like Boyle should?

3) Will our best players show up.

That's it. There really is no point in debating with the Red Wings fans, we simply don't know what's going to happen. The Shark's have not been consistent enough in their play for me to feel confident in anyway. The tools are certainly there, but their ability to utilize them is a big question.
This pretty much sums it up. Especially Niemi. I've been for him since the beginning, but I was a little concerned about the last series. I don't put as much blame on him as most here and I think we play Detroit better, which will support Niemi better, but he's gonna have to "stand on his head" in a couple games I think.
