and as for the pens they still only have a one line team (crosby,malkin, and whoever they stick with them) and we all know how well zetterberg did last year shutting down crosby.
Crosby and Malkin aren't on the same line except first shift PP. Penguins and Wings are pretty evenly matched in terms of how many different people on their team have contributed this post season.

Hopefully Pavs and Nick are healthy.

Bah, Huet was awesum, but that kick save was a fluke. The puck *should* have been lifted a bit higher. But even disregarding that save, he was spectacular, and so was Ozzie! If the Hawks had played this style from the start, who knows what would have happened!

Crosby and Malkin are incredible and have some guys playing with them too. Plus, they have last year's experience to give them a lift. Expect a tuff, well fought battle this finals. That said, I think Detroit is going to have the edge in coaching, depth, and goaltending (if Ozzie can keep up his postseason performance!)

Almost too close to call.

That's why they're going to play the series. It'll be good.

Very excited about this series, being a Norris fan I should be rooting for the wings. But I really want to see them go down.

Being a Norris fan prohibits you from rooting for the Wings.

They're too deep, they're too talented, and they play too well as a full unit to let one player beat them.

Wings go home with the cup (again) in 6 games.
are you kidding me? do you watch hockey? when crosby and malkin play the kind of hockey they have been this season/postseason, they can take on any line detroit has. why do you think they both have 28 points detroit almost lost to the number 8 seed ducks. and you seem to have forgotten guys such as fedotenko, guerrin, kunitz, staal, gonchar , scuderi, and orpik. and remember early in the season when jordan staal from the 3rd line completely embarrassed your red wings, if staal can single handedly beat your wings, crosby and malkin will do way more. the penguins are playing the best hockey right now as a team in the playoffs, their defense has been nothing short of amazing. their penalty kill is better than detroits. dont get me wrong, its gonna be a great series but the youth, talent, aggressivness and speed of pittsburghs game right now is gonna wear down detroit.

Not meaning to argue, but please let me point out that the 8th seed ducks HANDILY beat the #1 team in the league. And took the 3rd place team in the league to 7 games.

You really can't determine a teams talent in the playoffs by their regular season rankings.
