If you are anything like I am, you like to browse predictions about sports, especially before the playoffs. With the Detroit Red Wings set to begin their playoff run tonight against the Tampa Bay Lightning, I thought it would be fun to see how many experts were picking the Wings to come out on top.

The first place I went to check out the predictions was ESPN.com, and by the time I was finished I had seen enough.

ESPN had 13 analysts pick the winner of every first round series. All 13 of those analysts picked the Lightning to defeat the Red Wings in the first round. That’s right, every single stinking one of them picked against the Wings, how is that even possible?

Well, I am here to tell you not only that the Red Wings will knock out the Lightning in the first round, but that they will make a serious run at winning another Stanley Cup.

Here is a countdown of the top five reasons why the Detroit Red Wings will make a run at the Stanley Cup.
