1) San Jose
I hope against hope Pittsburgh loses early. (If you've ever lived in western PA, you'll understand people like me who hate every Pittsburgh team in every sport.) Obviously I want to see the Rangers go down too (preferably by missing the playoffs altogether, though a 1st round loss to anyone besides Pittsburgh would be OK too). I generally don't like Boston teams, and though I have nothing against the Red Wings, I'd like to see their playoff streak end.
