i think everyone, including Subban, had thought the hawks would have dominated the preds.

 

Absolutely. I didn't see a single expert pick the Preds to beat the Hawks and something like 85% of people chose the Hawks in their brackets. If the Caps end up losing something close to 90% of the brackets will end up wrong.

 

The Preds deserved to win the series and it was evident from Game 2 onward. The Hawks didn't look like the typical playoff Blackhawks of the past 8 or 9 years. They were sloppy and didn't seem to want to win even after going down  2-0. They didn't look at all like a team fighting to stay in the playoffs last night. Keith's hit on Arvidsson was the only thing that looked like an elimination game moment from the Hawks, and they didn't even use that to try building momentum. 

 

The Preds look like the 2010 Hawks with their mix of young talent and veterans and I think I'm going to be rooting for them to win the Cup after this

Absolutely terrible showing by the Hawks this series. A lot of it was due to Nashville playing great but still, the Hawks should not have been held to only 3 goals the entire series.

I think the Bulls can beat the Celtics if Butler, Wade, and playoff Rondo show up

It seems like the Hawks want me to end up last in the pool again  :P

16. Hawks

15. Capitals

14. Bruins

13. Ducks

12. Wild

11. CBJ

10. Oilers

9. Canadiens

8. Blues

7. Pens

6. Rangers

5. Sharks

4. Leafs

3. Flames

2. Preds

1. Senators

 

Unless the Caps choke once again they have a great chance at finally making the Finals. I think CBJ has the best chance for an upset in the first round over the Pens, although with the Blues being hot right now I think we might see that matchup taken to Game 7. If the Hawks meet the Wild in Rd 2 I think the series will be interesting but history shows that the Hawks have Minnesota's number in the playoffs. The Leafs might have gone far but I think the Caps are just the better team, not to mention their curse doesn't kick in until the second round. If the Hawks do end up playing the Caps in the final I think both have a good chance of winning, but personally think that the Finals experience the Hawks have will help them out in the end
