Pretty even actually. Leaning towards team non-cup though. Very strong wingers.

Why'd you put Kiprusoff over Rinne?

Anyways, team no-cup, because they'd be more desperate for it.

I would make some changes to the line ups (Elias out, unless we're talking prime/peak), maybe bump Kane up, definitely throw Getz and J Staal into the bottom 6. It would depend who is coaching, but I'm thinking the cup winners. Seem harder to play against. Their D is worse overall though, imo. Who is coaching?

Close, but defense on cup winners gives them the edge

Hmm, interesting. I'm seeing the opposite. I don't think much of Boyle anymore, he has declined pretty steadily lately, imo. I guess we wouldn't know unless they play

I actually prefer the non-cup's Top-4 D.

Boyle is the only weak link.. just switch him with someone else you like more. Kronwall and Chara would be a nice pairing... Also if Pronger doesn't retire, you've got a lock for the cup right there

Not great, but if he was paired with Chara, like when he was paired with another superstar in Neidermayer, they would dominate

Kessel is a ppg player in games that mean something (playoffs).
Nice try, though

As a group i would take non-cup winners, but if those are the actual lines then cup winners.
