L.A. still has a good shot at the division and would be a TOUGH matchup for the Preds. Dallas and San Jose give them fits too.

Four or five seed is the best option, and it doesn't matter too much which. Home ice would be better, but the Preds have been a strong road team all season. I guarantee they'll win at least one road game in round 1 giving them home ice should they be the 5 seed.

If you want to root for a matchup then pray the Wings continue their tank job and drop to 6th giving the Preds Chicago in round 1. That's the best matchup the Preds can hope for right now.
I agree with everything except for San Jose, I think we'd own them this year but that's not going to be an option.

I want the wings, and I want them with us having home ice.
