One, we get the game 7 at home, and two, Sens and Caps aren't that good. I feel the Devils right now are better than them, it's a matter of styles and match-ups, and, frankly, the fact that the Rangers at the end of the season were worn out, have little offensive talent, a hard-headed coach in love with grinders, and really are not yet an elite team. Besides, I think the Devils improved a lot at the deadline with Zidlicky, but they paid a high price - next year, if they don't sign Parise and Brodeur, they willl be much worse, and they gave up a ton of draft choices for Zidlicky. The Rangers, by contrast, will likely be even better next year with Kreider, Sauer, a free agent or two and some of the prospects.
