Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,
The easy assumption is that the Bruins could get by the Red Wings, Canadiens, or whomever is left for the Conference Final without facing the gauntlet while the Western champion has to muddle through Chicago and St. Louis; San Jose and Los Angeles; just to be left standings for one round.
By form, the rested Eastern champ, Boston, should beat the weary Western champ, be it the Blackhawks, Kings, Sharks, or whomever else. But by form, Colorado and Anaheim shouldn’t have ended up in first place.
Which leads me to my Stanley Cup pick: The Sharks.
Why? In this first season of trying to figure out the new playoff format, why not have the team win we can never figure out?
