With voting opening today or tomorrow, I figured it's time to do this.

Top three reasons why Minnesota should win:

1. Maurice Richard. Minnesota has an overall offensive advantage, but what makes it a striking game breaking advantage is the Rocket. With Balon or Pandolfo shadowing him, and Pospisil, Neilson and Awrey their left side d-men. Only Neilson has the ability to have the slightest effect on Richard's production. And even then, he's hardly the defensive master they'd need. Given Richard's ability to play his best when most needed, and given Lada's inability to contain him under the best circumstances, Richard's performance should be game changing.
2. Defence corps. Top to bottom, Minnesota has a clear advantage on the blueline in every facet of the game.
3. Any advantage Lada has is not significant enough. Advantages like goaltending and 2nd line are neutralized by Minnesota's advantages like 3rd line and coaching. Letting the big game changing advantages of Richard and Defence to change the game.
