Very valid points Jeff. They beat the Wings not only is it instant credibility, it's big momentum for seasons to come. Even if they lose, if they play tough, which we all know they would, they still come out smelling like roses.

I would have to say Lightning/Red Wings. If we lose, then it's "Hey, it was the Red Wings, nothing to be ashamed about." But if we pull it off, it's big time credibility.
Plus you have newer team/original team, young team/old team...lots of comparisons like that.
Lightning are the original southern hockey team. Red Wings original six. Could be fun.
