Couldn't agree more with you about the Sharks and Wings' prospect of winning it all. Thronton and Marleau are great regular season players but have a notorious playoffs history. Ducks may give them all they can handle and perhaps even pull off an upset. Ducks team is built for Stanley Cup playoffs. Wings have goaltending issue to sort out but they can win with average performance from the goalie just because of the system where the forwards backcheck, get in the shooting lanes and have great stick checking (an underrated aspect hockey) players. They may go all the way yet again if the dirty physical teams (Ducks and Flames) don't advance to later rounds.
By the way, congrats to the Steelers and to you. I still don't rate Rothelisberger very highly though he's definitely, a 10 QB in the league in my humble opinion. Despite his last minute come from behind win in SB, I still think his success is a result of playing in a good team. His offensive numbers prove my point.
