Besides their age, the wings have another glaring weakness, no depth on defense. A couple of years ago, the Blues were favored, but after Al and Chris were pounded into the boards for a couple of rounds, they ran out of gas. Chelly and Nick will do the same this year, not to mention that Dom is a playoff headcase. (What's the over/under on his "groin strain" this year?) Several of their star forwards are pretty soft too. Colorado may get Forsberg back and they were able to add to their defensive depth and toughness making them the odds on favorite.

Keep your eyes on the Sharks......
Blues have found themselves recently. Tkachuk and Demitra have finally woke up. I would not want to face this team in the playoffs, only really bad thing about my beloved Blues currently is goaltending. We could make coffee nervous with the chaps we put between the pipes.

Hey Huntdux, The Devils will be in the playoffs!
NJ Devils Team Report · 4/9/02

The Devils took the backdoor into the playoffs, clinching a spot late Saturday night when the Islanders beat the Capitals. But that doesn't mean their work is done heading into the final three days of the season.
The team that always seems to beat itself by taking too much for granted (like our Rams!!) is trying hard to avoid developing bad habits in the last week of the regular season. And that's why it is likely that coach Kevin Constantine is going to resist the temptation to rest many players........

The Red Wings are rested and poised for the run at the cup. It'll be hard to beat them. Yzerman, Hull, Robatille, Federov, Chelios, Shanahan,Hasek, will be hard to beat. Anything can happen, though. Bowman is a great coach, too. Colorado is physical enough (as usual) to wear them out. St. Louis is playing thier best hockey of the season, also. Depends on how focused the Wings are.
The Islaners are the patriots of the NHL. While its most unlikely that the Islanders win the stanley Cup they are playing great hockey going in to the playoffs. Osgood has been fantastic against the best teams and everyone else for that matter. They have proven they can beat the best teams in the East and seem to me to be on a magic carpet ride. TEAMWORK is their forte' and if you underestimate them they'll bite you. It has been a pleasure watching them this year. Their tenacity and their talent are paying dividends.

My mistake Marco. I should look at the standings more often.
As for the Redwings:
Hull: old and whiny
Federov: extra soft head-case
Shanahan: injury prone
Hasek: soft, injury prone, head-case
Again I raise the issue of depth on the blueline. Chris and Nick won't stand up to the beating for more than 2 rounds. In every interview you hear it: "the playoffs are different than the regular season." How about this? We shorten the regular season, all the teams are in and play round-robin for the cup? LOL!! Since post season hockey is the best, we'd get to see a lot more good hockey!
