I can't say the final two surprised me. Pekka Rinne and Shea Weber have been the two most valuable Predators this year, and you could make the same argument for last year, as well. When I made the seedings for the first round, it felt inevitable that the two would meet in the finals, and that's exactly what happened. Both have advanced with relative ease, but will now go head-to-head for the title of OtF March Madness champion.
In the comments section I'll list the final two choices. Recommend the comment of your choice and the comment with the most recs will be pronounced the winner. Voting will end at noon on Wednesday.

It goes without saying, but these two are equally deserving of the title of OtF March Madness champion. Without either of them, Nashville wouldn't even be in the discussion for a playoff spot. But, someone has to win, so vote for your favorite, and may the best Predator win. Check back Wednesday for the results.
