I'm not interested in a wager. (You are correct, I am in VAN).


They very well could miss, and I don't care enough about it to wager either way. That said, FLA has one edge against the SE - Defense. Their schemes are GA based. So while goal differential is important, their ability to be the "left hook" vs. the SE has served them well. It's their edge vs. their division.


All told, even last year I felt WPG should have made it in over FLA. Their underlying numbers were better.


It would just be hard to picture FLA not being in the hunt with better goaltending to influence their already division best GA. Luongo makes for a great fit there, just based on playstyle alone.
