From first glance this should be a fairly close series. Even thought Winnipeg got the best of the Wild in their season combat, Minnesota does have a well balanced team. Good goal tending, mobile defense, and forwards that can play a speedy game, and put the puck in the net. Winnipeg on the other hand, also has very good goal tending, mobile defense and a lot of fire power up front. Led by captain Blake Wheeler and scoring sensation Patrik Laine, along with three other 20 + goal scorers, and a healthy defense, this team can produce goals on any night. That alone should be equal to everything the Minnesota Wild has to challenge with. But, the one thing Winnipeg has, that i don’t see Minnesota having, is desire to play in the trenches. We shall see how this series turns out.

I pick Winnipeg in 6
