I'm mostly worried about the two teams on the bubble with over the top talent. Being Tampa and Washington. We've often found a way to beat those kinds of teams, but it's always difficult. Everyone else looking at the 4,5, 7 or 8 seed we can handle.
Not saying I'm scared of Winnipeg at all, but that crowd is amazing. Reminds me a lot of MTL, and we all know how we play there.
im a little scared of playing Winnipeg. they are the one team i noticed that can upset a higher seed. and if the Rangers play them, well the Rangers dont do well vs quicker faster teams especially ones that arent expected to do much damage...Winnipeg does have skill and talent...i can see them winning a series or 2 in the playoffs if they make it....
Let's be realistic here when talking about who we want to see in the playoffs.
We're not gonna win the Cup by facing the Canes, Piles, Flyers, and Minny.
I don't think there is really any team they could get in the first round that I feel could beat them in a best of 7, at least not any of the teams vying for the 8th spot playing the way they are now. A hot Tampa or Caps team could be undesirable.
The Penguins are really the only team I would not feel very confident against in the East as of right now. In a best of 7.
I want them to go through both NJ, and the Flyers, it would be awesome if they could do NJ, PHI, PIT, VAN/STL for the cup.
