#2 (WC1) Columbus Blue Jackets
Why Columbus Will win it all: They have one of the best defensive pairings in the game, in Seth Jones and Zack Werenski and, Sergei Bobrovsky plays like he is capable of between the pipes.
The Artemi Panarin-Pierre-Luc Dubois- Cam Atkinson is starting to gel and it is one of the most dangerous lines in the league right now. Columbus doesn't have to face Pittsburgh in round one and if they beat Washington, it would give them more confidence to beat them.
Why they won't win it all: Sergei Bobrovsky falters once again in the playoffs and the centerman doesn't step up. Columbus doesn't score enough and relies on its defensive game too much.Published 10 Apr 2018, 08:19 IST
