While I think San Jose has a great team and would be a very tough matchup, in terms of stylistic matchup and being much more entertaining to watch, I'd much rather see the Preds play San Jose.

As a matter of fact, this might be crazy talk, but there is part of me that would rather see Nashville play San Jose as a 5 seed than Dallas as a 4 seed. The Preds are 2-9-1 against Dallas in the playoff era. They are 7-3-2 in the regular season against SJ in the playoff era and better built to face a San Jose in a playoff series than they were a season ago.*

*Disclaimer: any talk of playoff matchups means assuming Nashville becomes more mentally playoff ready than they seem to be on 4/3/07, at which time discussions of matchups with any of the other 7 playoff teams feels moot...
