MSNBC NEVER covers hockey.

So... they must know their ****.
Canucks 4 cup.
This particular writer certainly does.

The article is written by Kevin Dupont from the Boston Globe. He is a very good hockey writer. As noted at the end of the article:
Quote:
Kevin Dupont writes regularly for NBCSports.com and covers the NHL for the Boston Globe. Dupont was honored at the Hockey Hall of Fame as the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award Winner in 2002.
Here is his bio from the HHOF:
Quote:
After 25 stellar years of covering hockey, Kevin Dupont is the recipient of the 2002 Elmer Ferguson Memorial Award for his contribution to print media, as voted by the Professional Hockey Writers' Association.

Born in Springfield, Massachusetts, Dupont caught his first taste of professional print media back in 1973 as a copyboy (editorial assistant) with the Boston Globe, while attending Boston University. The Boston Herald American later hired Dupont in the summer of '77 as a staff sports writer. His first season covering the NHL beat was 1978-79, a memorable and "colourful" season considering it was Don Cherry's last year with Boston.

Dupont left the Herald American in 1983 to join the New York Times, where he covered all three area NHL teams (Isles, Rangers, Devils) for the next two years. Kevin returned to the Boston Globe and has spent the past 17 years reporting on a wide variety of sports, with a prime focus on hockey and the Winter/Summer Olympics Games (Calgary, Seoul, Albertville, Barcelona, Lillehammer, Atlanta, Nagano and Sydney).

Never one to hold back an opinion, Dupont has also contributed to the Hockey News, ESPN The Magazine, MSNBC on-line, WWZN-1510 AM sports radio in Boston and the television network NESN.

He recently wrote a very good piece on the NHLPA problems and criticisms of Andrew Ference levelled by Brad Park (who has been front and centre in the fight to get pension benefits for widows and orphans of deceased NHL'ers) and Mark Recchi.

Definitely one of the better and most knowledgeable hockey writers around.

Probably should have done my research.

Well I guess that's why I'm no journalist.

And a Hfboards poster, or at least he used to be. Don't remember seeing him recently.

Yahoo's hockey blog, Puck Daddy, just picked Vancouver to win the cup

As I wrote in the Western Conference preview, I'm hoping that GM Mike Gillis does what's necessary to a very good roster to elevate it to great. Like the smart personnel tweaks that a guy like Ray Shero made to bring the Cup to Pittsburgh.

This is also a pick made with the hope that Roberto Luongo(notes) will lift the Conn Smythe over his head, instead of hiding his face under a hat to obscure tears from the media after elimination. (It would also be nice if Marty Brodeur had the majority of the starts in the Olympics, too.)

The team Vancouver will defeat, the Philadelphia Flyers, makes the Cup final based on two very strong defensive pairings, heroic performances up front and goaltending that doesn't lose them many games in the postseason. Plus, they're in the Winter Classic; true to form, one of the outdoor teams will make the Cup finals. Just not the home team.
