Have to love the experts picks and how a majority picked the Canucks to come out on top. Of course we're going to hear about all of the excuses after the fact...

The Kings are the biggest underdogs to steamroll through the competition and the only 8th place team to win a Stanley Cup, knocking out the top 3 seeded teams in the West. If it was an easy road to the Cup for them, someone explain to me why the Wings, Hawks, Predators, Canucks or Blues couldn't advance to the Finals this year.
