I think I would prefer the Bruins fly under the media radar.
As for why other teams are talked about-I think is is partly a lack of sexy players. The Bruins are a lunch pail team and outside of Chara there just aren't any players that generate lots of worship.
The Pens have Crosby (and Malkin) and the Rangers got Nash.
I also agree that there is a bit of an emphasis on the Atlantic teams-probably because of media market.
That said=I think the Devils seem to be a pretty good contender this year, but they also get ignored a bit-unless they are brought up in a Parise discussion and then it is along the lines of losing him to free agency.
As long as the Pens have Crosby they will be a much discussed team.
