The Preds play a tight, "boring" game of playoff hockey that will be tough for anyone to handle this year. Plus, they've added the scoring-touch of Radulov, who's always dangerous. Weber is peaking as an all-around d-man, and he and Suter are probably the best tandem going. Rinne is simply untouchable, a brick wall.
Don't be shocked if the Preds go all the way. I thought they were the favorites to come out of the West, when the playoffs began. They haven't changed my mind, with how they handled the Wings.
Speaking of which...yes, we need some new blood. I'm thinking Parise and Suter will look just fine in red next season.
