Finally, some love!

From Scott Burnside's ESPN chat (you have to have the "In" membership to view the whole thing, so the link not might work for those without it):

Ryan, DC: Scott, should I hold off on making plans this spring to make room for a Caps run in the playoffs?

SportsNation Scott Burnside: Well, I can say the Caps are our darkhorse team pick at At least for a little while in the spring, you should hang around. A lot of things will have to go right for the Caps. Nicklas Backstrom will have to be an NHL player. But the Caps have defined themselves as a very hard working, very physical team. I think they sneak in for the final playoff spot.

Jack (Denville, NJ): the suprise team of the 2007/08 NHL season will be.............

SportsNation Scott Burnside: I'm going to hedge my bets and give you a couple. I think the Caps are ready to make a move. I think the Blues will slide into a playoff spot. If you're looking for a negative slide - sadly, I think the Predators are looking to slide out of the playoffs.
Damn right Scotty!
