For one thing, Emelin is still down while Ottawa & Boston are at full health starting the season. For the other, at least as far as Boston is concerned, 2 finals appearances in 3 years earns them quite a bit more benefit of doubt than our measly division win.

I admit I'm a pessimist, but it's been 20 years since we've reached the final and we've got a lot of 1-and-outs along the way. It's hard to feel optimistic with our track record.
