Just stat watch and that's your SCF winner.
Does seeking to understand what I'm actually watching takes the fun out of the game? The Kings have been the best possession team in hockey the last three seasons. It's worked out pretty well for them. Last year was the best possession team we've had in ages. We made the Stanley Cup Final.

The combined force of Crosby and Malkin appears to be the only method for a poor possession team to legitimately contend for the Stanley Cup. The stats bear that out. Go dig up -31-'s Pittsburgh series preview and read the section on what they do for team shooting percentages if you don't believe me.
