    Close for me. Both teams have spectacular offenses. Halladay's is a bit more like St. Louis' where it is really good but not quite as much name power (compared to KingerSox) while Kingersox' is more like Pittsburgh's with bigger names.

    Not a huge fan of either defense, Johnson - Green would get eaten alive by the Halladay's offense but then Kingersox has the advantage in goaltending. So, really, really close for me. Would be easier to decide if you guys did a write-up for your team.

    From Halladay:

On top of that you have Franzen, Michalek, and Radulov spread through those lines on the wings, all 3 more than capable of 25-35 goals a season.

    S.Weber,Coburn,Yandle,Niskanen: All 4 of these d-men are two-way players once again. All 4 are capable of puck movement,playing a shutdown role and offense. Weber is the best defensive player in the world and is a consistent 50 point player,Coburn logs heavy minutes against tough competition,Yandle is always at the top in scoring at his position and is an elite puck move. Niskanen is another solid two-way guy having a good offensive year.

    In net my number one is Ben Bishop. He's third in SV%, just two points back of leading the league. He has a shot at the Vezina this year, nuff' said.

    My team is better than Kingers because they can go three lines deep, shutting his team which is a team that's all about offense, which doesn't win come playoff time. My team has enough firepower to keep up with his on top of being the superior team defensively.

    My rant..

    My team is LOADED down the middle. I have the option of putting Mike Richards back to C in the 3 hole if I want to put Malkin on the wing with Crosby or Getzlaf. The options are great. I have Richards, Helm and other very good PK'ers. If I wanted to load up a PP it would be deadly. The other thing is.. how is his D going to contain my team? I can roll Crosby and if you wanna put your best D on him then I can come back with Getzlaf.. ditto.. then Malkin. It's just too much of a handful. The defence is the weak part of the team but it has a good mix of skill and grit. Johnson, Mike Green and Goligoski's production would jump off the charts playing with some of my players. Smid, Klein and O'Brien provide the shot blocking, hit throwing, blood and guts type of players you need in the playoffs. Unsung heroes.

    Plus no matter which team in the world I play if Jonathan Quick decides to steal a game.. he's stealing a game. Good luck getting by him 4 times out of 7 let alone deal with my 3 headed monster down the middle. I would beat Halladay because I have too many options and the best goaltender in the world plus the best player in the world surrounded by some pretty good company. If they shut down Crosby you know one of Malkin or Getzlaf's lines will produce and vice versa.

    To be honest I have no idea why you took those 3 centers though. This matchup would not be close at all if you had added an elite defenseman where you took Malkin or Getzlaf... That Green-JJ pairing would get absolutely lit up. Only have you in this matchup because of goaltending.

    Going with Halladay here. I see this actually being an extremely offensive series. Kingersox has the better offense by a bit and definitely the bigger stars but his poor defense will make it so Halladay's forwards light up the scoreboard as well imo.
