This is my take on how the series will play out.
I see Chicago finishing off the Wings. Even after the Wings went up 3-1, I still thought the Hawkes had it in them to come back, and force their will on Detroit much like the B's did to the Leafs. Bigger, badder, and more depth over all, and their high-end talent is FAR superior to the Wings. Love Datsyuk, but after him and Zeddy, it drops drastically. Towes, Cane, Hossa, Keith, Seabrook, etc, etc... Good for the Wings if they can win the last game, but I doubt it.
I see LA pulling it out. Could go either way, and I wouldn't be shocked if SJ did, I just think home ice is enough to be the difference. Plus Quick is the better goaltender.
Chicago and LA - I am picking Chicago, but don't think I would put too much money on it. Their forwards are a saw off, but I think Chicago has a better D, so it might come down to goaltending, and that goes to LA. So a close series all in all.
Boston beating Chicago in 6.
