Some takeaways:

We really think the Capitals are going to win in the first round and everybody but Marcus and I think the Sharks are going to overcome the injuries to Logan Couture and Joe Thornton! Minnesota, Montreal and Boston are heavy favorites but other than that ... well, maybe we’ll get some interesting matchups.
