I'm willing to make the rare sweep prediction for the Pens over the Sens. 4-0, penguins coast to play the preds.

Thoughts? Predictions?

I guess kind of like the NBA, I'm looking forward to the final more than the series leading up to it.

That Preds-Ducks game was intense.  That could be a fun series.

 

I also think it's Preds-Pens at the end, this may be the year for the Preds.  Some things have come together perfectly for them at just the right time.

 

But it's hockey and things shift quickly.

Yeah, I'm kind of glad the oilers didn't advance, just because they're going to be the new Blackhawks for the next 10 years. I hope Nashville is able to capitalize this season. It would be good for hockey.

Not particularly. They have a long way to go before calling them the next Blackhawks, starting on D. A whole lot also depends on the health of McJesus, their overall depth is still a bit sketchy.

They're a legit playoff team right now, that's about it imo.

Oilers are going to need Nugent Hopkins to be a lot more than he was this year.  McDavid might be better than Kane or Toews, but right now he doesn't a Robin to his Batman.  Hell, he doesn't even have Alfred.

Draisaitl is a helluva player, he proved to be a great compliment to McDavid when the Ducks shut him down. You're right though, Hopkins needs to be a lot better and doesn't profile all that well as a bottom 6 centre. 

The Oilers still have big question marks on D and we'll also see how Talbot holds up. The're also going to lose a decent player in the XD and don't have a ton of depth to begin with outside of through the middle. Right now they stand to lose one of Kassian, Pitlick, Khaira or Letestu. That's if they want to hold on to Maroon.

Get out of the prediction business.
