Who will win in a best-of-seven series? Boston or Detroit?

This will be close and would be absolutely one hell of a series.

I still think Boston.

Bruins in 6 or 7 but I voted Detroit as I am a homer.

If Boston had the same lineup they did last season, I'd feel more sure of picking them over Detroit, but losing Horton, Seguin and Ference are big losses. Adding Ericksson and Iginla helps but I still think Boston got a little weaker offensively. Ference will probably not be as hard to replace because they have Hamilton, Krug and that other young d-man that is ready to step in.

I think Boston's d-corps and goaltending is better - I voted Boston but I think Detroit would make it a good series.

Despite how much I dislike them, I went with the Wings in this one.

One thing I've learned when talking about Detroit, don't count them out in anything. I think they could beat Boston.

Exactly. Detroit is the only team in the Nhl that shouldn't be questioned by just looking at their roster. They will find a way to beat any team. Never underestimate the Wings.

I hope this series happens in the next couple of years. These teams always play each other pretty hard, and Detroit's skilled forwards against Boston's tough defense is always a battle to watch.

It would be a close series.

Looking forward to seeing more of this next year:

Still waiting for you to do the same, TRL!

I think Boston will take a step back in the playoffs next season, and get surprised by a Detroit/Ottawa type.

Detroit. The way they manage/possess the puck should get them past the Bruins.

Red Wings fan who voted Boston

I think they're too physical and big for us to win 4 out of a best of 7

I have no problem with you picking Detroit but I think your reasoning is curious to say the least. The Bruins manage/posses the puck as much or more than any team in the league. They come at you starting with 4 centers whose face off percentage is above average starting with Bergeron who is probably the best in the league at face offs and not really losing much all the way down to the 4th line. Then once they get the puck they have guys who can hang on to it like Krejci, Marchand, Bergeron, Lucic etc

Series is close. Detroit got better during the offseason. Boston stayed roughly the same or may have made a slight improvement. Eriksson is an upgrade over Seguin but they also lost Horton.

I'd homer vote Detroit but it could really go either way. Both teams have some really good offensive firepower. Boston has the better defense on paper but Babcock makes Detroit's defense play very well. Both Rask and Howard are lights out.
