Haven't picked the Wings yet. Time to change that. They won't be able to wow Pittsburgh with their mystique like they did with Chicago, but they're just a better team all the way down the lineup. Wings in six.

The Penguins are younger, hungrier well-rested and will be motivated by revenge. Just like the Oilers beat the Islanders in their '80s rematch, Pittsburgh will beat Detroit. Then again, what do I know? Pens in six.

So Far: 8-6

You know what they say about karma. The irony of Marian Hossa leaving the Penguins to win a cup in Detroit is too big to ignore and a great motivation for Pittsburgh.

Penguins in six.

So far: 9-5

The first Stanley Cup rematch since the Oilers and Islanders 25 years ago, but not the same story. Red Wings proved themselves best in the west. That makes them best, period. Same series as last year. Detroit in six.
