issue is that Gaborik is injured so they discounted his production. A fully healthy Marion for 82 games gets the attention he deserves but coming back from a busted wing means that the folks at THN make the safe call and write him off.
I don't see Pitt making it to the finals either, they lost depth on the blueline and quality up front. Vokoun gives them a proven backup so that if and when MAF starts letting in beachballs they can pull him, but the defense is not better in steeltown. If anything they dumped Michalek back to PHX. ZM was 4th on the team in ice time per game, you don't replace that easily.
Philly also has problems on the blueline although retaining Grossman was a very good move on their part.
Cally gets props because he is going to feast on the powerplay.
Vancouver gets the love yet still has Luongo on the roster. Hard to believe they get finals billing on a still relatively unproven Schneider, while NY ranks a lowly 4th with an improving blueline and world class goalie.
