2011-12 Season Preview: Expert Picks

those a pretty good my man.. i don't think i'd stray too far away from that.  ovi is due for a bounce back season, landeskog is gonna go off, and chara is well.. cahra.  I'd put the flyers as dissapointing though.. just me.  I could also see bruins hawks as a final.

2011-12 Season Preview: Expert Picks

Wassel and EA sports are two newbies up from when this was originally posted. So the Lundqvist picks came after what I posted. This article was substantially truncated in the last 12 hrs. I'm picking Lundqvist strictly on the media market although I agree he could use a better blue line. He should've been a finalist last year instead of Luongo.

Wow, quite a few picks for Lundqvist for the Vezina all over the place besides here.   If that's the case he'll be the winner with arguably the worst blueline infront of him in a really long time.    I just think they'll leave him on an island too often this year for him to win.    I can see a good argument for almost all the other predictions.
