Montreal v. Flyers and Rangers v. Penguins IMO is definately the ideal scenario for the NHL after possibly Overchkin's Capitals playing Crosby's Penguins.

In the west the likely matchups include Detroit v. Avs and the Sharks v. Stars. The former looks to be a good reignition of an "old" rivalry. Sharks v. Stars while being a good series to watch as a fan will get very little national ratings of the ever fickle "average" hockey fan.

I personally think the NHL will be rooting for a Flyers v. Penguins conference finals though the Rangers would be definately welcomed and Detroit versus anybody in the finals. I kind of hope the opposite happens and it has happened. Cannot wait for a San Jose v. Montreal cup final.

They either want a Detroit/Pittsburgh or a Detroit/NYR Cup Final.

I doubt anyone outside of Philly wants to see the Flyers in the Conference Finals. Besides, Montreal is hockey royalty.

If I were an NHL exec:

I'd definitely want Montreal-Rangers and Pittsburgh-Washington. Not only for the Ovechkin-Crosby matchup but for two Original Six teams that bring in both the NY and Canada audience. Then the ideal conference finals would probably be Rangers-Pens (big market against Crosby, keeping the Canada market in play with the golden boy).

In the West, I would not want Detroit to get knocked out. Certainly not for the Nashville market. I'd also want Colorado (big names and up-tempo team) and Dallas to advance, as well as the Sharks. No Ducks, especially considering you'd only want one team from CA going through and plus they don't have a lot of national appeal, championship team or not. So Detroit-Colorado, San Jose-Dallas; I guess the ideal scenario is Detroit-Dallas, though Detroit-SJ would be the better hockey series.
