Definetley either the Jets or Blues.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Nashville's got a bit of experience now, so that could really help them get deeper.

Can't believe that St. Louis and Nashville lead the voting. Does everyone understand what "darkhorse" means?

For my money it's a toss-up between the Sens and the Panthers...

Edit: Dallas is a really dark horse......

Edited by RUPERTKBD, 07 April 2012 - 06:25 PM.

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

Sens! :D
People talk about pressure like it's something negative. Pressure means your actions have meaning, that people care about whether you succeed or fail. Pressure is everything.

Phoenix, or maaaaybe Ottawa, but I don't think the Sens are getting far (unfortunately).

How are the Blues and the Preds dark horses? Dark horses would imply that few would expect them to win, yet St Louis is 2nd in the West and Nashville is a powerhouse this year. They're closer to cup favourites than dark horses tbh... Especially Nashville.

Dallas isn't in the playoffs.
New York and St Louis are President's trophy candidates - not dark horses.
Really, only 6-8 seeds (or weak division winners in the 3 spot) could be considered dark horses.
Too many good teams to see a dark horse winning it... I think Phoenix is the best team in the lower half in points...

Wayne Simmonds....

But in all seriousness, I would say the Sens. If Spezza can tear it up and their goalie holds it together, then they may have a shot. I'm pulling for them.

People picking St Louis need to look up Dark Horse....

Ottawa, Florida, Phoenix would be my 3 picks since everyone's giving them no notice, it's all going to NYR/Pitt & Van/STL

Predators scare me most in the west

"The Canucks, are like North America, many of us have it so much better than others around the world or NHL, and we don't properly appreciate what we have."

"If Canucks fans hate Mason Raymond so bad, then you should have said something before the trade deadline! Because the Leafs would have totally taken him. I mean, can he score? Can he play a HINT of defense? WE'LL TAKE HIM! WE'LL TAKE TWO!"

The darkest horse? Then a list that includes many of the top seeded teams?
Isn't the OP the same guy who made the "Black Horse" thread a year or two ago?

Rangers arn't a darkhorse team. They won their conference, they are expected to go far.

As for my pick, I'd say either Washington or Los Angeles
