Arguing with someone like that? What exactly is that supposed to mean? My point is neither the Canucks or Bruins are elite, IMO. Elite is best of the best. A term for a very select few. Just because a team is leading their division doesn't make them elite. Especially in awful divisions like the Southeast and the Northwest division. There are better teams in each conference and I can't see either team making it to the finals. Of course anything can happen and it's impossible to predict anything with absolute certainty. That being said I'm willing to wager neither team is there in the end.
