WESTERN CONFERENCE CHAMPION: Los Angeles Kings

Los Angeles has had a long enough rest through the lockout to make a return trip to the Stanley Cup Finals. The Predators will get all the way to the Western Conference Finals before being knocked out by the Kings. The Blues will see their season end for the second season in a row by LA, which should be real interesting as well.

Like usual, probably off or way wrong, but it’s fun to predict.
