This is an interesting poll but what it fails to take into account is how much better a given line or pairing is compared to another.

For example:

The Bruins #1 D pairing > The Blues #1 D pairing
The Bruins #2 goaltender < The Blues #2 goaltender

However the difference between the Blues #1 D pairing and the Bruins #1 D pairing is much closer than the difference between the Bruins #2 goaltender and the Blues #2 goaltender.

This poll would have them even 1-1 after such an assessment, when in reality the advantage would lie with the Blues in this particular example as they would have a larger overall gap between players.
