While I'm sad to see the Tampa Bay Lightning get ousted from the playoffs, you've got to hand it to the NJ Devils - They are playing efficient and smothering hockey right now.

That leaves the question - Are the NJ Devils the team to beat this year for the Stanley Cup?

The Devils may be the best in the East, but I'd put my money on Anaheim; they just seem too good to be beaten. Vancouver will have their hands full against them in the Western Finals. They made some crucial moves that took a mediocre team to a contender in a year's time. Tampa Bay and Minnesota may have been the Cinderellas this year, but the Mighty Ducks seem to have had some of the magic of the Angels (now no longer part of the Disney family though) rub off on them. But will success this playoff season equate to them staying in Anaheim? With the team being on the market, and the glut of sports teams on the market, Disney will take a hit on selling the team (much like what happened with the Angels). Disney would be lucky to get $200 Million for the Ducks; and would the new owner keep the team in Anaheim? If someone like Paul Allen makes a bid for the team, they could definitely be headed to another city (the Portland Ducks anyone?).

Good point, Srbmod.  Big thumbs up I hadn't considered the Ducks when I posted this question. Maybe the Ducks-Devils in the Stanley Cup finals? That WOULD be an interesting series, complete with the jet-lag equation for both teams. It would definitely make home-arena an advantage!
