Let’s get past Wings first, but in order, imo, here are Hawks toughest ops:

1/ Pens – It was a toss-up between Pens and Kings as our toughest ops. With Pens, defense is shaky but they can play any style you throw at them. Goaltending isn’t great either but they have Crosby, Malkin and Iginla. It may be better for us that they are upset before getting to the final.
2/ LA – no weakness on this team that I can see and built for the PO’s. Again, I’d like to see them gone, but SJ are quickly down 2 – 0 in the series, so it isn’t likely. Our grit will need to be at an all-time high to beat this team.
3/ Rangers – a mystery team that has underachieved all season. We can take them, though Lunquist can steal games at ant time.
4/ Bruins – played a very physical 7 game series against Leafs and I imagine against Rangers, it will be the same. They should be pooped by the finals if they make it, and they are already slow afoot. They will try to bully us into submission, but we will be fresher.
5/ Ottawa, who knows but Anderson is playing great still.
6/ SJ – good size on this team but we should be able to beat ‘em.
