San Jose.

They've been one of the league's best teams for a few years in a row now, and Boston has had one stellar half season.

Its the more likely scenario. Sharks have more established talent and have been winning even while missing several of their better secondary scorers and Roleplayers.

to be clear... i wasn't implying Boston was the better team

my post had nothing to do with that... though i do give the edge to SJ right now

and pointing out SJ injuries is pretty silly considering Boston has been battling key injuries this year as well

Given their track record and team make-up, they sure as hell have a better chance of doing that than the Bruins.

At this very moment, Boston is definitely playing the better hockey, although I like San Jose to finish ahead of them at the end of the regular season.

Playoffs, however, I can't see it as anything other than a coin flip.

What he said.
I voted San Jose though becasue I think they'll finish with more points and that was my measuring stick.

Both teams are strong right now. Sharks have a better record in an "arguably" tougher division/conference. Bruins have better stats and goaltending. Both teams have had injury problems...

Well...I guess we'll see what happens on 02/10...I got tickets to the B's / Sharks game in Boston. Psyched!
