Ottawa in 5 IMO, 6 a stretch.
Their top line is very good. Pastrnaki is a star in the making, Stafford has been a thorn in the Sens' side for many years. Spooner was developing into a bit of a Sens killer until this year. And that 4th line could be good but are a huge question mark right now. Chances are they won't play much until they get to Boston and can get the match-ups they want. On the road, when we can control the matchups, without 2 of their top-three D, it's pretty much all on Rask.
Their PP won't be nearly as good without Krug, and their PK won't be the same without Carlo. Chara is going to play a ton of ice time. Remember a few years back when he got dehydrated and missed a game? That might be as soon as game 3.
All that said, it only goes far enough to make Ottawa a slight favorite but it still won't be a cakewalk.
Hey, I don't have all the answers. In life, to be honest, I've failed as much as I have succeeded. But I love my wife. I love my life. And I wish you my kind of success.
