Perhaps, but certainly not the favourites as we keep hearing on TSN and elsewhere. Mainly from folks who look at stats more than anything (and our stats are impressive, no doubt about that). However, I’m more optimistic today then I was a few weeks ago. I liked it when we drew The Wild, and it helped tremendously to win the first series in quick fashion. Drawing Wings next is also desirable relative to SJ. Hopefully SJ will give LA a good and physical tussle this round, and soften them up a bit, and of course I also hope we can beat Wings and stay as healthy as possible in doing so. There’s no reason why we shouldn’t. Assuming both teams advance, LA vs Blackhawks will be a gigantic challenge for Hawks. My main concern remains between the pipes.


what areas do you find particularly "shallow"?
