However the west is deep with 100 point teams and since the Olympics I'd be hard pressed to say that the Sharks/Wings/Hawks aren't all capable taking the west crown this year.
It's gonna be defense that is the deciding factor, do the Sharks have the horses? Can Blake push them over the edge? Can the Hawks stymie their goalie issue? Will the Wings have to hurdle the hot goalie in the 1st round? Which in the past (2002 Ducks) has killed them
