So let's hop to it!

We get Erat back, leaving only Sullivan out...who we really didn't have last year, either. We're a lot healthier this year, a lot bigger this year, and everyone is a year more experienced. I don't anticipate an easy series, but I can near guarantee that NEITHER team is going to dominate. It's somewhat amusing to see some(not all, for those of you reading and disagreeing) Sharks fans actually salivating over this matchup. I think they may be in for a surprise.
I like our matchups down the middle A LOT better than last year.

Arnott v. Thornton
Legwand v. Marleau

That's two players we were without, basically, in last years series. Combine that with the emergence of Weber as a defenseman, and we are much better positioned this year than last.

I think it'll come down to special teams. It seems like we've been the far superior team over the years even strength in our head-to-head matchups. But we really struggle when a lot of penalties are called.
