In this guide we break down why each team will win the Stanley Cup and why each team won't win the Cup. Here is a sample of what you can expect to see in this free playoff hockey pool guide:
Why the Boston Bruins will win the Cup: Because they are the defending Stanley Cup Champions. That makes them the team to beat. The roster saw little turnover from the championship season the year before, and many of the players have only matured such as Tyler Seguin, Brad Marchand, and Milan Lucic who are all still under 25 years old. The core of the forwards is in their prime with Patrice Bergeron, Nathan Horton, and David Krejci all between 25 and 30. The backbone of the team is Norris Trophy contender Zdeno Chara and Vezina and Conn Smythe winner Tim Thomas, who are playing at an elite level.
Why the Chicago Blackhawks won't win the Cup: Goaltending has been a bit of an issue this season with Corey Crawford and Ray Emery splitting time and both looking someone mediocre during stretches of the season. Crawford however didn’t look awful last year, and the Blackhawks were almost able to get past the Western Conference Champion Vancouver Canucks with him in net. The recent concussion of Toews after a car accident, which saw him crash into an L-Train beam, is a major concern for this young Blackhawks team. Without Toews the Blackhawks could be dead to rights, but Toews is a warrior on the ice and is expected to be ready to go by the time the playoffs roll around.
Nashville Predators Top Two Players from their Top Ten List:
- Shea Weber – Other than Nicklas Lidstrom, he’s the best blue liner in the game today. He’s able to produce a great hard shot from the point and can do anything in the facets of today’s game. He’s often in on a lot of the Predators scoring plays and is rarely if ever out of position. He’ll be Smash-ville’s top point scorer in what’s expected to be deep playoff run.
- Pekka Rinne – This guy has been one of the top keepers in the game over the top couple of seasons. He’s rarely out of position and is big enough to fill up a lot of the net and has good rebound control. He can single handedly steal some games for Nashville and should be a key player in Nashville’s quest for a berth in the Stanley Cup final this year.
