to be honest, i don't particularly consider ottawa a serious cup contender. i think they're a second\third round contender, and that's largely because of the goaltending.
of course, they have quite a margin for error with guys like redden, chara and phillips. atlanta's defense is improved, but "devries, modry, havelid" doesn't exactly strike fear in anyone's hearts, either.
