In order of who I wouldn't want to face:

1 - Dallas
2 - Minnesota
3 - Detroit
4 - Anaheim
5 - San Jose
6 - Calgary
7 - Vancouver
I wouldn't mind facing San Jose, honestly. I'd much rather face them than Anaheim. We've gone a long way towards countering their strengths. I think our ability to shut them down has increased greatly. Arnott v. Thornton and Legwand v. Marleau are much, much better matchups for us than Sillinger v. Thornton and 1/2 Legwand v. Marleau.
