Many times to, the team who wins the Presidents trophy tend to "blow their wad" to win it.
the team I would not want to face in the opening round is Buffalo, they have been playing great hockey, and "playoff hockey" for a while now...momentum goes a long way in the NHL playoffs.
St.louis is a good tean no doubt, but they are a relatively inexperienced team, they will not win the Stanley cup because of it....the young teams that have just reached greatness need to learn to lose before they actually win the whole thing.
NYR, also a very good team, but if the play Buffalo in the opening round, I am calling for the upset.
Pittsburgh, on paper has to be the odds on favorite, they have, arguably the best 2 players in the game, as well as a very good goalie, and a ton of experience. If Letang can stay healthy, they should be considered the favorites.
