Nashville Predators (4) vs. San Jose Sharks (5)
Sometimes you just get an unlucky draw. That's the case of the San Jose Sharks, who finished 5th in the West and will face the Nashville Predators in the first round. The Predators bolstered their already talented line up with Peter Forsberg at the trade deadline, and immediately became the consensus pick in the West. The Sharks, lead by Cheechoo, Thornton, and Marleau, aren't exactly light-weights themselves. It's a shame one of these teams have to be eliminated this early. Both teams can put the puck in the net, and both teams are back by talented goalies. It should be a great series, but I think Nashville has the upper hand, I've got the Predators in five.
