Okay, so I lied, some people are. But most aren't, and you can't blame them for picking the Rangers. They are the better team, they won the President's Trophy, and they have home ice. Stranger things have happened....but let's take a look at what the expert minds around the hockey world think about the Penguins chances of knocking off the Rangers.

Thank you for your confidence, James Mirtle and Shawn Roarke. No thank you for your lack of confidence, Mr. Buccigross and Mr. Blinn.

Also, thank you, Mr. Barnaby for your betting tips.
